10. Bonus evergreen challenge

A sentence you might be saying right now: Management and other teams are stepping all over us, saying that we are just adding unnecessary extra paperwork to their work. They tell us to figure it out ourselves.

How will an HR system solve this?

HR can do virtually nothing without the cooperation of other colleagues. While many employees and coworkers don't realize this, the company has a number of reporting obligations that need to be in order. Otherwise, it exposes itself to the threat of audits and potential penalties. And that's something you really don't want. It is easier to explain in detail to everyone in the company the reasons for implementing an HR system and its benefits. Openness in communication definitely pays off.

How is it at Sloneek?

We start by making the application environment clear, attractive, easy and smooth to work with. This is related to the pocket version on mobile. You can process what you need in a few clicks. We're trying to save everyone time and get the data that we as a company just have to work with. But we want to have fun with it. And we want the same for you and your colleagues.
