Working in HR can sometimes feel like navigating a labyrinth. From juggling compliance changes to ensuring data security, HR professionals face a never-ending stream of challenges. For those looking to invest in HR software, there is another issue – with countless options to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one can truly meet (or maybe even surpass) your organization’s needs, and which are dead ends.

That’s why it is vital to find a modern all-in-one solution that tackles these hurdles head-on, partnered with unwavering support to help your team succeed. In this article, we will take a closer look into the common hurdles that HR finds themselves fighting, and how GoCo can become your trusty companion.

Challenge #1: Keeping up with compliance

The important regulations that HR must keep up with are constantly evolving. New laws and amendments can emerge seemingly overnight, leaving HR teams scrambling to stay compliant. This constant state of flux can be overwhelming, especially for smaller businesses lacking dedicated legal counsel.

GoCo keeps up with regulations

GoCo understands the burden of compliance changes. Our platform is continuously updated to reflect the latest regulations, ensuring your business stays ahead of the curve. This translates into peace of mind for HR professionals, allowing them to focus on more strategic initiatives, instead of constantly double-checking that everything is still compliant.

Challenge #2: Disjointed solutions create confusion

Many businesses rely on a mishmash of point solutions to manage various HR functions. This fragmented approach leads to having your crucial information scattered across different platforms. When this happens, consolidating and retrieving data becomes time-consuming, error-prone, and frustrating.

GoCo unites your data

GoCo's HRIS platform functions as a centralized hub, eliminating the need for managing multiple point solutions. Payroll, benefits administration, performance management – everything is in one place with GoCo. This streamlined approach facilitates a seamless data flow and empowers HR teams to make data-driven decisions with ease.

Challenge #3: The need for more than one tool

While some HRIS platforms offer a broad range of features, they may lack the depth required for highly specialized tasks. This often necessitates reliance on third-party partners for functionalities like background checks or complex workers' compensation administration. 

GoCo is optimized for integrations

While GoCo offers a robust suite of tools, we understand that some businesses may require even more specific functionalities. That's why GoCo integrates seamlessly with over 100 best-in-class solutions, allowing you to customize your HR platform without compromising on user experience. 

But wait, doesn't integrating multiple platforms create a new set of support challenges? Not with GoCo. Our team works closely with partner vendors to ensure smooth integrations and unified support. 

Challenge #4: A user experience stuck in the past

Many HRIS platforms have clunky interfaces and outdated functionalities. These archaic systems can hinder user adoption and lead to frustration among employees and HR professionals alike.

GoCo prioritizes user experience

GoCo champions a modern and intuitive user experience. Our platform is designed with the user in mind, featuring a clean interface and easy-to-navigate functionalities. This ensures a smooth experience for both HR personnel and employees, fostering a culture of self-service and boosting overall satisfaction.

Challenge #5: Implementation headaches

HR professionals often face lengthy implementation processes when adopting new HRIS solutions. This can disrupt workflows, create confusion, and delay the realization of the platform's benefits.

GoCo's streamlined implementation

GoCo understands the need for a swift and efficient implementation process. We pair all of our clients with a dedicated Implementation Manager to offer comprehensive training and support to minimize disruption and get you up and running quickly.

Challenge #6: Protecting your data

In today's digital age, safeguarding sensitive employee data is paramount. A data breach can bring severe, long-lasting consequences to your organization – both financial and reputational.

GoCo takes security seriously

GoCo is committed to the highest standards of data security. Our platform is SOC 2 compliant, signifying our adherence to rigorous security protocols. We employ robust data encryption and access controls to keep your information safe, ensuring your data is protected with the utmost care.

Challenge #7: Poor customer service 

Once you have chosen an HR software platform, what will happen when you need a helping hand navigating its features? Unlike some HR tech providers that leave you to navigate FAQs or endless ticketing systems, you need a provider that prioritizes personalized, responsive support.
