Streamline Processes

Use cloud-based technologies or applications that enable a connected, on-demand working style. Too many businesses still use standard paper and manual processes for things like expense reporting, time-off requests or tracking time despite its burden on employees. For example, according to a study TriNet conducted around the effectiveness of company expense processes, 78 percent of employees say they would be more productive if the expense reporting system at their company was easier to use. Many employees have little patience for dealing with paper. The important administrative pieces of their personal lives take place entirely online (banking, bill paying, etc.) and they expect their work life to be the same. Asking an employee to review and select benefits via a paper enrollment form makes the workplace seem out of touch.

Modernizing all aspects of the workplace – from business processes to workplace culture – is inherent to meeting the expectations of the evolving workforce. Despite technology improving and streamlining processes, many companies are still struggling to change their business models to adapt to the new ideals of the modern workplace such as collaboration, transparent communication and mentorship.

Outdated practices may mean missing out on top talent who look for innovative and creative work environments. If a company is stuck on archaic processes, they risk facing costly consequences.

In this slideshow, Jacqueline Breslin, director of human capital services at TriNet, cloud-based provider of HR services, shares tips for modernizing the workplace to help organizations navigate emerging workplace trends and issues to stay competitive.
