Effective employee relationship management (ERM) is crucial for any HR department.

Here are 4 hacks with Formaloo that will make your day at the office more productive and efficient. 

1. Use pre-made survey templates

HR professionals know best how to use the data to their advantage, especially insights gathered from new hires. They need to understand how their employees feel and what's their overall employee satisfaction levels. These and other components in total makeup for a positive company culture, for which every successful company should strive.

The first days are nerve-wracking for everyone and a smooth onboarding makes a great first impression to prepare them for success. However, building that process can feel like a mountain of work when you're already busy.

If you have a unique vision, you can create a survey from scratch easily. You don't need to know how to code. 

It’s like a cheat code, saving you time and effort while making your new hires feel welcome and prepared.

2. Manage everything in one space

HR professionals might often struggle to find employee documents like contracts and performance reviews scattered in different folders and drives. This time-consuming hunt can disrupt your workflow and delay critical processes. Formaloo offers a solution: centralized HR data storage.

Centralized storage provides secure storage for all your employee files. This translates to significant time savings. It also minimizes the risk of losing important data, ensuring everything is readily available and easily analyzable at any time.

To make your space even more efficient for your needs, you can connect your HR management tools with the existing systems you use. This can include Slack, BambooHR, ThriveCart and so much more! 

Regarding data security, which is important to not only HR but all teams, choosing the right software is monumental. It’s best to choose ones that comply to international data protection regulations like Formaloo, which adheres to the guidelines of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is HIPAA compliant

3. Collaboration made-easy

Effective communication is essential to any successful organization, and the human resources department is no exception. Formaloo’s workspace allows the entire department in one space with different access levels for each team member. 

Here’s how it works: 

Once you create a new workspace, you can add all forms, ERMs, surveys, HR portals, and other formaloos to it. Then you can decide who will join you in that workspace and also decide what part of information they’ll be able to access. 

We prioritize data security and empower you with access management systems. Therefore, you can define specific user roles and permissions, restricting access to sensitive information based on individual needs and job functions.

You can determine what information a member can view in the data by assigning them varying levels of access. This can range from viewing only a single row to having full ownership of the entire workspace. This ensures that only authorized personnel can view and manage confidential data.

This is a good choice for remote teams or organizations with various roles. It enables effective teamwork and helps monitor important data closely.
