Technology is often considered the backbone of progress, where solutions are found and questions are answered. Nevertheless, technology is an industry just like any other, faced with its own problems and challenges. The Pandemic has forced many industries to reckon with a new normal, and workers have begun approaching their work with a new mindset. This has presented a new host of issues for HR departments industry-wide.
While healthcare workers may be the most heavily affected by the pandemic, the technology industry faced its share of new responsibilities. With people remaining inside due to lockdowns and new rules being implemented for maintaining safe distances and establishing contactless interactions, many technology workers saw increased demand as they were requested to help fortify existing solutions and propose new ones.
With all this work and these responsibilities comes an increased stress level, which can reflect in worker productivity and morale. These areas, in particular, are where HR is incredibly significant, and with a strong HR department, ideally, any business can address these issues swiftly. But what constitutes a strong HR team is different than in previous generations. Companies are larger, more distributed, and facing more complex logistical challenges than ever before. That is why the technology industry should adopt its own philosophy when approaching HR and seek technical solutions and HR software.
Moonworkers is an HR software provider that aims to supply businesses with the HR solutions they need to make every responsibility more efficient and to provide employees with the comfort and confidence to thrive in their positions. Our software was designed to be adaptable to many of the problems facing HR in the past and present. To showcase our capabilities, we want to highlight a few key issues facing HR departments and how Moonworkers can help.
#1 Talent and Hiring
If you have minimal awareness of the technology industry, then you will surely be aware of the talent issues affecting the industry. More specifically, the battle over capable employees, as resignations and hiring difficulties have become to plague many tech companies.
On its surface, this issue of “skill shortages” may inspire some to think that these workers are just not present in the labour force or perhaps have left for more advantageous regions. These may be some of the cases, but many of the issues that companies have will come down to ineffectiveness in identifying and screening potential employees.
Hiring is one of the most expensive processes for a business, in regard to time and money, so mistakes in this area can significantly affect productivity and eventually even destroy a business. A company looking to identify more reliable talent and manage a more productive workforce must use software tools to help its hiring and onboarding processes.
How Moonworkers Can Help
One of the most critical features that Moonworkers provides is our Talent Directory. With our Talent Directory, you can browse, contact, hire, manage and even pay your contractors or temps within the Moonworkers platform. If you already have some contractors on your payroll, you can even import them into the Moonworkers software to make managing your employees even easier.
Through the Talent Directory, you can have extensive chats with employees in the database, analysing a large pool of potential workers and getting a better feel for their compatibility with your business. If you identify a great candidate, it is a straightforward process to plug them into your HR and payroll and start managing them immediately. Onboarding, payment, and important document records are also taken care of through the Moonworkers platform, streamlining what can be hectic paperwork. Finally, with our talent guarantee, we rigorously screen contractors before you see them, ensuring businesses can feel comfortable with our directory of candidates.
