Ten years ago, some giant companies did not exist. We are talking about Tesla, Uber, Airbnb, etc. What these companies have in common is that they are one of the very first startups to have entered the market.

Those digital companies are an integral part of our daily life. While many still seek to oppose this fundamental transition, these companies have been very successful in asserting themselves.

In the digital era dominated by tech companies, the backbone of their success lies in effective human resource management systems. A well-implemented human resource management system optimizes processes, centralizes employee data, and streamlines performance evaluations, aligning the workforce with the company’s vision. By leveraging these systems, digital companies efficiently adapt to the ever-changing landscape, fostering a culture of innovation and agility. The success of these companies doesn’t solely rest on their digital prowess; it’s equally driven by the strategic implementation of robust human resource management systems that nurture talent and sustain competitiveness.

The key to success? Human resource management! Indeed, team management must be based on three bases: employee recruitment, integration and then separation.

Startups are known to be young companies with modern values. Individuals are chosen according to their talents and passions and enjoy great freedom of action.

How is team management done in a startup?

The first task in human resource management is, of course, recruitment. In a startup, we look for individuals who share the same goal and the same passion as you.

The state of mind and motivation are therefore the main criteria. Today, we know that skills are acquired over time, and all means are good for recruiting: social networks, emails, events, etc.

Then there is the integration of individuals. We are far from badges, fixed hours, strict clothing, the most important is the goal of the startup. Moreover, the objectives of a startup are set by management, hence the importance of human resources management in a startup.

Human resources tools

These tools are usually software that allows us to exploit technology to simplify HR processes and tasks. Their goal is to improve the productivity and efficiency of the company by entrusting manual tasks to artificial intelligence.

Result: the HR team manages tasks better and even finds more time to carry out other tasks that are more important for the startup and its development.

Thus, this software makes it possible to perform several tasks, including:

  • Recruitment;
  • Management of personal data;
  • Calculation of wages;
  • Integration;
  • Resignation process;
  • Employee contract, etc.

This software also makes it possible to manage staff leave and absences. They offer detailed and precise information on all “types” of leave.

The HRD is the manager who manages your startup’s calendar. He organizes leave requests according to the general program of the startup.

The software helps HRD perform their tasks more accurately. Excel is a very popular software for performing leave management, but it is still very limited compared to other tools available on the market. For example, Figgo is a leave and absence management software very ergonomic and very easy to use and much more useful than Excel.

Opting for paid software is much more strategic for your startup because it adapts to your activity adding values as needed.

Such software, therefore, makes it possible to save time and to have data collected in a secure and well-organized place.

For a startup with a large workforce, human resource management software is a must-have.

The advantages of the HR management tool are:

  • Better management of employees;
  • Allows individual self-service;
  • Reduces errors.

How is human resource management done in a startup?

The main restriction in a startup is its budget, which is most often limited. Hiring is done according to the needs of the company. Indeed, we call for applications when the need arises.

You would have understood it, HR is very important. This is why it is very important to stay motivated and above all very organized.

Today, with the help of technological advances, we can rely on HRIS software (Human Resources Management Information System) to manage this sector.

Automation and artificial intelligence save a lot of time which is precious in a growing startup.

Complex and long tasks are simplified. Over time, several problems start to get through your lens, such as:

  • Process management;
  • Optimization of the workforce;
  • Data management, etc.

The larger the team, the more complex the management becomes. There will be tasks to be performed without fail: hiring, human resources management, payroll management, training, regulatory compliance, etc. Sensitive data is scattered over many folders and in many places.

Depletion of human resources is another limitation that decreases productivity. This inefficiency is not an option in a super competitive market.

To recap everything we just said, if in your startup you’re still using sheets and briefcases, then you are missing out on something! Solution? One word: HRIS.
