The cloud content platform HR teams need: Box uniting the workforce

Simplicity is king. No matter, the shape, size, industry, or location of your business, simplifying and streamlining the way individuals and teams work is absolutely vital to maximising efficiency. Particularly as businesses are evolving to facilitate more agile working and flexible working styles, it is essential that peers can work digitally, communicating and collaborating in real-time. This is where the content cloud comes in. Content cloud tools offer secure content management, collaboration, and workflow automation to create a secure, central hub for sharing and working on materials.
In this blog we will show you how the content cloud can transform HR departments, uniting any potential disparate communications, platforms, and processes, to make daily operations simple and efficient.

HR teams are often performing a juggling act, trying to communicate with various peers and external parties over a variety of platforms. Box acts as a central hub for content management and collaboration, meaning HR teams can store and work on all their important documentation in one place.
The key benefits Box offers HR teams include:

Centralisation of resources

Box offers a single, secure, central location to store, share, edit, and collaborate on all HR resources. This can then also be integrated into an existing company intranet, ensuring information is always easily attainable and lowering the risk of document duplication.

A strong onboarding process can improve new hire retention by 82% and so cultivating an effective onboarding experience is vital for the success of an organisation. Box can help HR departments transform their onboarding process by offering a centralised knowledge for team onboarding and a location from which any information, paperwork, or orientation materials can be sent and received easily. Easy and secure external collaboration means HR teams collect and share documentation with new hires before they are formal employees.
Additionally, Box Relay allows users to move onboarding processes from spreadsheets and emails to clearly defined workflows, in which individuals are notified on their required actions and deadlines.
