A Day in the Life of an HR Professional

Imagine you're an HR manager, recruiter, or People Ops professional, and it's Monday morning – a fresh start to a busy week. You grab your coffee, sit down at your desk, and before you lies a towering pile of paperwork and tens of emails that need your attention. You're not alone in this; it's a common scenario for HR professionals. These are the moments when you wish you had a magic wand to streamline the tasks that consume your valuable time and energy.

Welcome to the world of HR superheroes, where time is of the essence, and efficiency is key. In this article, we'll take you on a journey through the common challenges HR professionals face and how the Avokaado and BambooHR integration can make your HR department data-driven, processes transparent and efficient, life easier, and, dare we say, enjoyable.

The Contract Drafting Odyssey

Every HR professional knows the drill – it's time to finalize the hiring process ASAP to fill the position on time. But on average and without an automated system or template, it can take up to a week for an HR professional to draft an employment contract. It's a week of your life dedicated to filling in the forms with the same data, and sometimes it can feel like a never-ending cycle of copy-paste and upload-download.

Avokaado’s solution: Avokaado knows that HR contract drafting is a standard process and should be automated. But it is not the full story. We want to give you even more. We’ve replaced the traditional Word and PDF documents with a new document format aDoc, which is smart, automated, and data-driven. We give you the contract drafting process running through questionnaire and clause logic, then we add the creation of several documents from single or integrated data input basically with one-click, bulk drafting, single workflow running autonomously or as assisted by HR professionals.

"The integration with Avokaado and BambooHR has made our work process much faster. We don't need to fill in basic information manually when creating new contracts or appendixes. Also, we no longer need to go and upload documents to BambooHR. Everything is automatically synced and works perfectly."

The Data Dilemma: Siloed HRIS Systems

Now, let's move to the next scene – the world of data. Data entry is a necessary evil, right? Not anymore. In a 2023 article by Forbes, 36% of HR professionals said they don’t have adequate technology to automate processes, which means wasting time they could be spending on more important tasks. It's like a never-ending game of digital musical chairs, and you're losing time and energy every day.

Avokaado’s solution: Avokaado understands the need for a better way. Our integration with BambooHR ensures that all employee data is synchronized in real-time. No more chasing down data in multiple systems or risking data redundancy and errors. You'll finally have a single source of truth for employee information. With a few clicks, initiate a contract filled with up-to-date data from Bamboo, parties from Avokaado and Bamboo set in their needed roles (from viewer and editor to approver and signer). Collaboratively draft, sign, and get the document posted back in Bamboo with only the necessary steps taken.

The Email Limbo: Contract Signatures

Now, picture this: you've sent out employment contracts via email, and now you're stuck in an endless loop of email ping-pong. According to a survey by CareerBuilder, 21% of employers said that their onboarding process can take as long as a month, causing delays and less-than-desirable performance levels. Meanwhile, you're in a sea of "reply-all" madness.

Avokaado’s solution: With Avokaado's eSignature capabilities, you can bring this email madness to a screeching halt. Obtain digital signatures as a unified seamless workflow globally, no matter the location, quickly and securely, eliminating the need for manual printing, signing, and scanning. Your contracts will be signed and sealed with ease, no additional subscriptions or costs needed.

The Copy-Paste Chronicles: Data Transfer Woes

Remember the days of cutting and pasting text from one document to another? It's not just a distant memory; it's a current reality for many HR professionals. A survey conducted by CareerBuilder found that manual collection and processing takes more time than we think – 42% of HR managers who don’t capture onboarding information electronically spend three hours or more per employee manually collecting and processing onboarding information, while 16% spend five or more hours.

And let’s not forget the added stress of document management. Maintaining an organized and up-to-date repository of HR documents can feel like herding cats. And with 26.5% of HR professionals saying that technology is the missing ingredient from their organization’s onboarding program, it’s no wonder onboarding processes can hinder a company’s growth.

Avokaado’s solution: Avokaado has developed aDoc to run all your drafting and collaboration processes. The integration enables your data to flow effortlessly between contracts and BambooHR employee cards, stores all relevant data and contracts in Avokaado according to pre-set rules and gives you full control over the document versions and access security based on user rights.

This really is a game changer for your HR document creation and management processes, enabling you to always work with the latest, approved documents and correct data. In addition, you get a table view of all contracts ever drafted from a template and master the data for future actions as you please. Build reports, reuse data, get insights, and more.
