COVID-19, a wholly new and unknown pandemic, took the entire world by surprise with its ruthless speed and ferocity. By the time we realized its implications, it had dealt a severe blow on the health and wealth of almost all nations across the globe, and we are still counting.
But adversities usually bring out the best in people and their systems. There is this army of people out there fighting this predator disease without any fear. Many of them have succumbed to this enemy during fightback, but the rest are still marching on and fighting. They are not only fighting the dreaded disease but are saving or healing hundreds of lives daily.
Yes, these are our healthcare warriors. Doctors, specialists, anesthesia, nurses, ward staff, maintenance workers, administrators, health volunteers, etc. These people not only deserve an enormous round of gratitude but a solid backing of good administration, management, and moral support.
What could HR function do to provide the maximum support to these individuals in their respective organizations?

Let us look at a few benefits of Cloud-Based HR software for Healthcare Sector
Stressful work environment
No amount of support is enough for people who, at times, work round the clock attending to patients or who are called into emergencies at any time of the day or night. There are times when employees must work on different shifts or even multiple shifts, causing fatigue and lowering concentration levels - an excellent recipe for disaster. Ensuring good physical and mental health of employees is as important as their patients.
cloud based HRMS helps monitor workloads by creating sufficient intervals between continuous or stressful work to ensure employees are rested well enough to take up the next assignment.
Counseling and advocating support
Counselling has to be used as a dual tool for both stressed-out workers or under-performing employees. Performance can be monitored to ensure the organization gets the best out of its employees to provide the best quality service to its clients or users. Goals & achievements, rewards & recognition or highlights & shortcomings can be recorded in the HR system to help and support the employees to perform better and smartly.
Constant Training, skill upgrade
Health care solution is progressing rapidly with new medicines or equipment introduced in the market to provide the best of care to patients. This covers not only preventive but also corrective health care. HR has a task cut out to ensure their staff is constantly updated on the latest technology available. Specialized Training and skill upgrade management are critical parts of HR activity and need to be monitored closely to ensure the staff is fully trained.
Other administrative functions such as timekeeping, attendance and leave management, payroll management, statutory compliances, expense control, etc. are all operational within these HR systems to ensure that the organization’s focus is on the service and delivery.
Hiring and Attrition management
Another most significant challenge that a healthcare organization faces is the attrition of skilled staff. Ensuring that employees are fully engaged, motivated, and well paid is the most significant role that HR has to play. Like any other business sector, healthcare is also plagued by constant resource turnover and needs regular engagement with managers or employees themselves to ensure their needs are taken care of. HR has to keep a watch in the market to stay abreast of the compensation being paid for specific skills to be competitive and retain the said skill.
