What is an ERM?

ERM is a new human resources tool that is an innovation of Human Resources software. As the name implies, the ERM applies the techniques of CRM (Customer Relationship Management), widely used by sales representatives, to current or potential employees of a company. An example of CRM is Salesforce, with a market share of 23.8%, dominating the CRM software market. In other words, ERM is a device that groups all HR software and operations in order to accelerate processes and improve the retention of talent.

Why is it Important to Use a Digitized ERM Tool?

An ERM tool is important because the digitalization of HR is a hot topic right now and more and more companies are choosing to digitize their human resources service, especially small but growing businesses that are evolving from a start-up to an SME. The digitalization of HR leads to processes being optimized, an increase in speed and efficiency and, generally speaking, a more modern and up-to-date human resources function. 

Overcome challenges

Companies today are new challenges (such as the pressure of employee expectations and Generation Z’s arrival on the job market) and this effects the way they approach employee recruitment, retention and engagement. Human resources departments are learning to adapt their services and modify the way they handle tasks and employee needs.

Digitalize your HR processes

As a rule, employee administration still makes up the majority of the human resources department’s daily work. Because of this, human resources processes were some of the first to be digitalized and outsourced (In the USA today, at least 30% of companies outsource their payroll management and this number is increasing) and  dozens of new software  providers are reinventing human resources processes with groundbreaking tools.

Keep your HR services human

In recent years, digitization has radically transformed the way companies operate. But keeping human at the heart of HR tools is the key to success. From this point of view, digitalization represents a unique opportunity for the HR function to reinvent itself in a more strategic role. This is where the tool of ERM, or Employee Resources Management, plays an important role in the revolution of HR.

Responds to current issues

The ERM responds to current issues such as the war for talent, the search for well-being at work, and the arrival of new generations on the market. It is therefore for the purpose of providing solutions to these challenges that PeopleSpheres has developed its ERM human resources tool. 

PeopleSpheres unifies Your Software with Its ERM

The novelty of our HR platform solution is that PeopleSpheres unified all your HR software within a single portal. You will no longer need hundreds of passwords to access different software: you can navigate from one to another in the ERM with one click thanks to connectors and a dashboard that gathers all data from different software on the ERM. You can thus find on the dashboard the absenteeism rate from your leave and absence management software, the performance of your teams from the performance management software, and the turnover rate directly from PeopleSpheres employee profiles. Furthermore, data is secure in the ERM thanks to being encrypted and stored on highly secure server.

Even more streamlined administrative tasks

The philosophy of PeopleSpheres’ ERM tool is that administrative tasks are streamlined as much as possible to free up time for talent management. It is with this in mind that the platform has been designed to reduce the heavy burden of data entry. Whereas it was previously necessary to enter the data of the same employee several times in each software, now it need only be entered once in the ERM. Data synchronizes itself automatically in all software, thus limiting errors.

Uses of the ERM

Similarly, the ERM acts as a notification and action center. Employees will no longer receive dozens of notifications from each software: they will only receive one single digest e-mail summarizing all notifications and actions to perform. Each employee will have their own unique and unified user profile in the ERM that allows them to see their appointments calendar, to-do list, new training courses, internal events etc.) The user profile can be customized according to the needs of each person’s role.

Other Functions of the ERM

The ERM also lets you create an array of universal forms. You can create a multitude of pop-up forms with regard to onboarding, salary review, performance review, etc. These forms will serve as the basis for your employee self-service portal. You can manage all fields from the ERM admin platform.  You can also generate reports and documents (contracts, tax forms, etc.) automatically from employees’ data and sign them electronically. There are many other features on the ERM tool to facilitate daily HR tasks, all with the human aspect in mind. 

Improves communication

One of the main aims of the ERM is to promote the loyalty of employees. Retention of talent is indeed one of the most sensitive topics at the moment because of the significant changes in the labor market. To overcome this, employees can use the ERM to have access to their own personal space where they can find and modify all their data managed by the human resources team.

Human resources can communicate directly via the ERM about newcomers, company successes, new online courses, etc. to avoid misinformation and ensure that all employees have access to the same information at the same time. There is also a messenger function in the ERM for employees to communicate live with an HR professional in order to speed up administrative procedures. Self-service forms are available to quickly record changes in a person’s address, phone number, family status or other.

Makes life easier

In short, the ERM is designed not only to facilitate the work of human resources, but also to facilitate interaction with employees. The goal of the ERM is to create an atmosphere of trust where information is as transparent as possible in order to retain employees.

PeopleSpheres ERM

PeopleSpheres thus offers the best of its technology by launching its ERM: an easy-to-use tool with an ergonomic design that serves the company’s vision of putting people at the heart of human resources strategies. This is the first software that treats employees as customers to be taken care of and that encourages them to remain loyal.
