Why and When to Get Out of Spreadsheets and into HR Software - A BambooHR White Paper


Out With The Old, In With The New
 
Spreadsheets have been the standard way to manage data since the 1980’s with Apple’s VisiCalc, Lotus 1-2-3, and eventually Microsoft’s Office Suite.
 
Today we know that, up to a certain point, spreadsheets are good enough to meet basic needs and have immediate practical value for HR. However, at a certain point, they no longer do the trick. Instead, they become a pain and a liability; fortunately spreadsheets are not the standard anymore.
 
A recent survey shows that 60% of the Hospitality industry, 73% of the Healthcare industry, and 86% of the Technology industry currently use some type of human resource software. This shows that the majority of organizations have figured out they don’t have to use spreadsheets as a standard for managing HR. Instead, HR software has become the new standard.
 
So, if you are still using spreadsheets to track employee data, you need to ask yourself—why? Then start evaluating when you will transition from spreadsheets to human resource software.
