Happy employees = Happy clients = Successful organization

Why does it matter if your employees are happy?

Before even thinking about your clients who generate revenue for your organization, your first client is your employee. Employees when feel valued, are your biggest asset. They are the face of your business, the individuals that sell your product or service, and are the voice that can either make or break a deal. But how do you ensure they are happy? Monetary rewards are sometimes not enough. Having an HR Management solution in place that tracks employees progress, feedback and encourages employee engagement is a must if you wish to ensure your employees keep those smiles on their faces :)

Happy employees mean:

Loyalty to the business – promoting a positive working environment will follow through when dealing with prospects and clients. They are more likely to want to work with you if your employees portray a positive attitude towards the business and what they are selling.

Talent retention - talent is the most sought-after asset, and in an ever-increasing competitive market, organizations struggle to not only attract talent but keep them. By keeping your employees happy, will ultimately mean retaining that much needed talent your business needs to survive – leading to…

Profit and reaching business objectives – if you have a talented happy workforce, innovative ideas will exude especially in a positive working environment. If your employees are disengaged, or feel undervalued, creativity and motivation will lack – affecting business profit and reaching those much important business objectives.

How to do this?

Offer consistent and continual feedback – all employees need feedback, constructive and continual comments on their projects. Using trackers or feedback tools within your HR solution provides employees the chance to continually feedback on other colleagues work, and these can be viewed at any point – and are especially useful when it comes to  the performance review. Not only this, but receiving positive feedback on work can lead to…

Motivation – employees need to know they have room to grow. They need the reassurance that if they want to progress, there is a plan in place for this to happen and you value them as an individual employee. Offering a career pathway for each of your employees offers a roadmap of where their career can lead to. Having a goal to achieve within a job role such as a client project is short term, but having longer term goals within a business in regard to personal development will motivate your employees to work harder, and help business grow.

Employee engagement – make them feel valued – Did you know that most employees leave their workplace because of their managers? Most employees stay due to their relationships they have with their colleagues. Offering a forum where employees can engage with each other regularly about work, but also personal achievements allows employees to grow relationships with colleagues they may not deal with daily, or in a global company, may have never met. For example: within OrangeHRM, there is a ‘Buzz’ community within the OrangeHRM system– where employees share photos, successful projects, videos and even #throwbackthursday.

Although this blog is only a snapshot of why happy employees make a happy business, there are many ways organizations can achieve this. If you’re interested to find out more about how OrangeHRM’s solution can encourage employee engagement and overall workforce happiness, we would love to speak to you, get in contact with us today here! Or if you have other ideas on how you manage positivity within your organization, please comment below.

OrangeHRM Announces the release of Open Source 4.0

We are excited to announce the new version of OrangeHRM Open Source 4.0 is now available and is ready to be used for production.

One of the main highlights of this new version is the opening up of 40+ REST APIs. These REST APIs are for the Admin, PIM, Leave & Time modules respectively. This version is certified to work with PHP 7.1 & Maria DB 10.1 or MySQL 5.5.

What are the aims of 4.0?

Our primary objective for 4.0 is to empower our developer community to build applications that can enrich our ecosystem. We already have a couple of the beta testers who are creating applications that will interface with third party tools.

OrangeHRM app store was created for our community members who would like to monetize their applications”. Said Sujee Saparamadu CEO and Founder of OrangeHRM “ With a 3.5 Million user base we will be able to market these applications that will enhance the productivity of our clients.”

How can you learn more?

There have already been a number of sample applications created for our community. You can download the sample app today from here and try it out for yourself - if you have any feedback or questions, get in touch. These sample app’s show how to use the REST APIs.

OrangeHRM has also been made available for “api-client-PHP” which eases the use of these REST APIs.  You can download the User guide for the API’s here.

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley 2 Comments

Along with the upgrade of its professional HR solution, OrangeHRM released its application program interface (API) for vendors and developers.

In January, OrangeHRM released the new upgrade of its professional and enterprise HRM product. The release delivered new internal social media user capabilities along with #ProjectNova, a cutting-edge ATS that incorporates comprehensive candidate management and support throughout the recruiting cycle using the abilities of IBM’s Watson.

Taking the upgrade further, OrangeHRM released the professional and enterprise solution API to allow vendors, and developers, the opportunity to create products that easily integrate with OrangeHRM solutions.

The professional and enterprise options of OrangeHRM create a virtual, full-service HR ecosystem with a full suite of modules, just some of which include the following:

  • Centralized system administration with tools to create and extract reports, define pay grades, and indicate employment status.
  • Easily use and manage your personnel information, view employment history, or create informative reports.
  • All aspects of leave, time off, and timesheet management are available through the OrangeHRM dashboard. Request leave, grant leave requests, review and capture attendance data, increase efficiency, and reduce employee downtime with these OrangeHRM modules.
  • Recruiting, onboarding, and offboarding are important features of OrangeHRM solutions. From candidate sourcing, decision support, and interview assistance, the latest version of OrangeHRM creates a real-time environment for locating and hiring the right talent.
  • Document and disciplinary action management enable HR managers to create, track, and store confidential and other types of documentation.
  • Included with the professional and enterprise solutions, OrangeApp offers the ability and flexibility of monitoring your HR environment on your mobile device—wherever you are in the world.

These dynamic capabilities offer vendors a wide range of options to develop associated products to integrate with the OrangeHRM platform and create enhanced, or specialized services.
