Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources can help you bring efficiencies in all HR-related functions like recruiting, administration, talent management, time tracking, leaves management, and reporting.

There are many HR solutions to choose from for your Professional Services business, but few deliver the comprehensive solution that you need. If you are looking for a talent management software for your business, you should consider Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources (formerly known as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Talent). Here are five reasons why:

Reason 1: Build a high-performance work culture

All management professionals have heard the phrase: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” by Peter Drucker. But how do you build that winning culture? Senior leaders in the business can share their vision for the culture they want; it is up to leaders in the hierarchy to drive that culture and it is for all employees to take ownership. The HR team plays the crucial role of enabling this vision to materialize, and for that you need good software to support you.

Only engaged employees can drive a high-performance work culture. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources helps you proactively keep employees motivated to enrich their careers. When team members knows that you are invested in their professional growth and that their growth is aligned to business growth, you drive engagement.

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources, you can assign broad goals and competency requirements, recommend professional development resources, share performance review templates across the business, and do much more.

Reason 2: Make the HR team more productive and create real impact

HR teams in Professional Services firms can become more productive when you automate tasks, allow employees to access information, and get things done through self-service options. This will give your team the free time they need to work on strategic projects that create real impact for the business.

With Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources, you will be able to:

  • Centralize employee profiles to check skills, certifications, accomplishments, etc.
  • Help managers track performance and share feedback easily
  • Plan employee growth with training and certifications tracking
  • Empower employees with self-service tools for goal setting, time-off requests, and more
  • Save employees’ time by integrating different HR tools within collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams

Reason 3: Simplify payroll management

Payroll management is perhaps the most important work for the HR team. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Human Resources helps you setup a comprehensive payroll system that incorporates taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. You can also include different deduction options and employee benefits.

In addition, you can make better decisions when you have full visibility on the payroll history for individuals and groups, all of which is easy to access from the centralized dashboard for your business that may be spread across different regions.

Meeting regulatory requirements is also easy with a set of standard reports. You can create custom reports based on the requirements of your business.

Reason 4: Working with Microsoft makes it easy​

Perhaps the biggest benefit of using a Microsoft solution is that it is easy to connect to the other solutions that you may already be using. Your team is already familiar with MS Word, Excel, and other solutions that you use daily.

If, for instance, you are using Microsoft Teams, you can free up time of your employees by giving them access to self-service HR tools directly from the messaging application. Without the need to shuffle through multiple applications to gain access to information, the employees will be able to get more things done in a way that is faster and more efficient.

Reason 5: Become the CFO’s best friend by saving costs

Growing companies in the Professional Services industry need to optimize their processes and save costs in order to stay lean, agile, and profitable. The HR division is no exception. With Microsoft Dynamics 365 HR, you can foster a self-service culture that reduces the employees’ dependence on the HR team to get the information they need and follow automated processes for leave management and more.

You will not only save administrative costs but also be a part of the strategic growth story of the business by focusing on the more important work.
