GYDE365-Design : Core Human Resources Summary


Human Resources Overview

Core HR functionality in Dynamics 365 helps organisations streamline their HR processes, improve employee management, enhance compliance, and drive better workforce performance. It provides a centralized platform to manage various HR activities and enables HR teams to focus on strategic initiatives that contribute to the organisation’s success.

Key functionality includes;

  1. Employee Management: Dynamics 365 allows you to maintain a centralised employee database, which includes information such as personal details, employment history, job roles, compensation, benefits, and qualifications. It provides a 360-degree view of each employee and enables efficient management of employee records.
  2. Organisational Management: The system helps in managing the organisational structure and hierarchies. It allows you to define departments, job positions, teams, and reporting relationships within the organisation. This information provides a clear understanding of the organisational structure and facilitates various HR processes.
  3. Employee Self-Service: Dynamics 365 offers self-service functionality for employees, allowing them to access and update their personal information, view pay stubs, submit time-off requests, participate in performance reviews, and access HR policies and documents. It empowers employees to take control of their HR-related activities and reduces administrative overhead.
  4. Recruitment and Onboarding: The system supports the end-to-end recruitment process, including job posting, candidate screening, interview scheduling, and offer management. It enables HR teams to track candidate information, manage the hiring process, and streamline the onboarding of new employees by automating tasks such as document collection, orientation, and training.
  5. Performance Management: Dynamics 365 facilitates performance management by providing tools to define performance goals, set up performance reviews, and capture ongoing feedback. It allows managers and employees to track performance, document achievements, identify areas for improvement, and conduct performance evaluations.
  6. Compensation and Benefits: The system helps in managing employee compensation, including salary structures, pay scales, bonuses, and incentives. It provides the ability to define and administer benefit programs such as health insurance, retirement plans, and other employee perks. Dynamics 365 can also calculate payroll information and integrate with external payroll systems.
  7. Leave and Absence: This workspace provides a flexible framework for creating new leave plans. It also provides workflows for managing requests and an intuitive self-service page for employees to request time off. Analytics help your organisation measure and monitor leave balances and usage for your leave plans.
  8. Time and Attendance Management: The platform enables tracking of employee attendance, time-off requests, and timesheets. It provides functionalities for capturing and managing time and attendance data, managing work schedules, and generating reports related to employee attendance and productivity.
  9. Compliance and HR Policies: Dynamics 365 assists in managing compliance with labor laws, regulations, and HR policies. It allows you to define and enforce HR policies, track compliance training, manage certifications, and generate reports for auditing purposes.
  10. Reporting and Analytics: The system offers robust reporting and analytics capabilities to gain insights into HR metrics, trends, and workforce analytics. It provides pre-built reports and dashboards for monitoring key HR indicators, workforce demographics, turnover rates, and other HR-related data.
