Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources is an ERP module from Microsoft. It is designed with capabilities to handle different human resource processes right from the recruitment of employees to their retirement. Microsoft asserts that using this module can greatly minimize costs associated with recruiting and managing employees while improving their overall performance.
Its user interface is easy to find your way around. All you need is a basic guide and you will be good to go. This software is not just for the HR in a company, employees too can use it to manage processes like applying for leave, setting up medical benefits, and so on.
An example of how it makes the HR process easier is when calculating leave days. One common error made when this is done manually is that official holidays may be calculated as part of leave days. With Dynamics 365 HR, however, public holidays are automatically removed from the number of leave days just like weekends. Let's take a look at some other features.
This is a feature designed to help HR manage the employee experience so that employees are more comfortable at the organization. This feature has tools that foster productivity and learning. Both the HR and the employees are involved in determining the experience. For example, an employee can respond to feedback about their performance, they can also manage their leave requests within the system instead of writing a letter to HR.
This feature helps the organization set up rules and policies that govern the execution of duties. With several departments and teams within an organization, there are corresponding hierarchies. Dynamics 365 HR helps the user set these up much faster. Templates can be used to ensure nothing is left out. Hierarchies help in financial reporting, both internally and externally.
An organization can attract and retain talent by offering them attractive benefits and compensation. This feature makes it much easier to do this and involves the employee in the process. It is a flexible solution that goes beyond the usual medical dental and child and spouse care. An organization can configure its benefits plan as it sees fit. You can set up criteria for certain benefits. These benefits are also visible to employees as well as prospective employees. Whatever is chosen can be automatically added to the final employee contract.
Human Resource can keep detailed profiles about every employee with information such as academic qualifications, professional experience, additional training, and so on. This profile is handy for managers who may be considering assigning certain tasks to team members or when planning for training. This feature also integrates with LinkedIn to create an all-round profile.
Several other features can help HR, managers, and employees within an organization. For example Leave and absence management, enrollment management, retirement management, etc.
365 Human Resource integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft Dynamics modules. For example, it can integrate with finance to automate the payroll system within the HR module. Sales data can also be retrieved from the sales module to assess the performance of an employee.
Integration can also be achieved with third-party apps like recruitment apps. applications can be channeled from a recruitment site straight to the HR module and applicants can be screened within the system.
You can also integrate with document automation software to efficiently communicate and collaborate with different people. Automate offer letters, job descriptions, and any other HR communication.
There are two pricing options. You can choose the self-service option which costs $4 per month or the full package which costs $120 per month. If you choose to include other Microsoft Dynamics modules, you will have to pay for them separately as well.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human resource is an easy-to-use HR tool that packs a lot of features in a single module. HR teams can make their work easier by using it.
