Core HR (core human resources) is a blanket term used to define the basic functions of an HR department, including the basic data capture about employees and the software used to manage basic HR processes. Among the core functions of the HR department are employee recruitment, benefits administration, scheduling, payroll, employee training, compliance and safety.
Core HR is typically used in three different ways –
- To mean the basic data captured about employees
- To refer to the basic functions of an HR department
- To leverage software used to organize the data and facilitate the above functions
By implementing strong Core HR software, you can ensure a safe, centralized place to store confidential and important employee data, organize that data, automate mundane/repetitive HR tasks, and generate reports as and when needed. Having a core HR software allows you to seamlessly facilitate core HR functions like recruiting, onboarding, scheduling, training, and compliance. It also makes managing employee benefits, tracking absences, filing taxes and updating payroll easier and more accurate.
