Advantages of a digital personnel file

On behalf of, Tanja Zboril, Program Manager OpenText

Reduce administrative effort and respond more flexibly to new conditions in the market and in your organisation – all this with a computerised personnel file?

Does that sound too good to be true?

Admittedly, deploying a digital personnel file in isolation cannot work miracles, but it is a particularly effective element in the evolution of your HR department – from a mainly reactive administrative role to a proactive strategic function. The time has passed when employees performed tedious and labour-intensive administrative tasks. With a digital personnel file, they can manage all staff information in a single application – whether it is in the form of data or documents.

You gain many benefits compared to a paper file. A digital personnel file is accessible to several people at once wherever they are, provided they have the appropriate access rights. Staff no longer need to copy or mail physical documents.

Processes are speeded up and many work steps can be simplified.  For a limited period, you can also set up a secure guest access to a specific personnel file. For example, if it is planned to transfer an employee to a different department, a couple of mouse clicks are enough to release the personnel file for viewing by the potential future manager.
