Organizations with traditional HR departments still use paper for a lot of tasks and activities. On the other hand, many organizations try to strike a balance between paper-based and digital HR activities. There is another class of organizations that decide to go 100% paperless with their HR operations. Making a paperless HR department doesn’t just mean using HRM software and applications. It also entails setting up a paperless employee database. In this short post, we will walk you through all the benefits of establishing a paperless employee database.
