Human resources professionals are constantly gathering information and signatures from employees — all while working to keep the data organized, secure and confidential. Most HR departments are juggling multiple administrative projects at once and working hard to keep all the moving parts in place. In addition, the HR team is probably handling more physical paperwork and documents than necessary.

With many managers saying automating processes would increase their productivity, switching to an online data collection system is crucial for efficient workflow — now, more than ever — and can add up to hours of saved time.

Even if HR has been doing things the same way for decades, moving to an electronic system is easy and painless. One way to do it — and to do it well — is using online forms. These are a versatile data-capture tool that can be used for a wide variety of human resources tasks.
