In the last few years, there has been a huge growth in HR department productivity fueled by Internet-based technologies that improve workflow.

Initially implemented in the front office, these technologies are now being applied throughout the organization to streamline operations. Many of these efficiencies are achieved through deployment of employee relationship management software or ERM that enables employee self-service.

Using such a system assists companies in managing, retaining and servicing employees to increase productivity while significantly reducing the cost of workplace transactions. It provides real-time information and data to support effective and collaborative decision-making between employees and management.
