Human Capital Management
Maximize the Strategic Value of Your Workforce
Lawson Human Capital Management
There was a time when businesses and organizations hired people to fill vacant
positions. Aside from trying to match skill sets with skill needs, employers gave
scant thought to how each employee contributed to the organization’s high-level
strategic objectives.
Today’s “do more with less” paradox mandates that you extract the highest
possible value from your workforce. That’s why, more than ever, Lawson Human
Capital Management solutions make so much sense. With Lawson™, your
organization is positioned to optimize your human capital in many different ways,
from consistently hiring the most qualified candidates to retaining the best and
brightest employees.

Automation and Integration of
Key Activities
In a multitude of ways, large and small, Lawson can add strategic value to your
workforce and your organization. Besides helping you hire a top-quality,
highly productive workforce, Lawson Human Capital Management solutions
can transform tedious, time-consuming everyday tasks into efficient
automated processes.
Do you have hundreds, or thousands, of paychecks to process each week?
Lawson Payroll can accommodate even the largest employee populations,
whether you choose to process payroll for the entire organization at once or
in concurrent periods.
Need a better way to track and respond to employee attendance issues? Lawson
Absence Management assists you in effectively monitoring your workforce, even
if you have very complex time off policies, allowing you to take swift preventive,
corrective or compensatory action, as appropriate.
Managing benefits has become progressively more difficult, but it doesn’t have
to be that way. With Lawson Benefits Administration, each new hire activates
the notification and enrollment process, including payroll deductions setup, based
on specific eligibility criteria. Many administrative tasks previously handled by your
HR department can be delegated to individual employees via Lawson self-service.
Besides assuming control of their own benefits enrollment, employees can make
plan changes, add or change dependents and beneficiaries, manage flexible
spending accounts, view retirement account information and more.
Integration plays a key role in Lawson Human Capital Management solutions.
A prime example: When the decision is made to hire a candidate, personal
information gathered during the recruiting and interview phase automatically
populates the new employee’s HR record. Eliminating or reducing the need for
duplicate data entry may contribute to additional cost savings, along with less
likelihood of data errors.

Track and Manage Employee Information
Can you readily locate information about an individual employee or group of
employees? How easy is it to make updates to this information?
For most large organizations, tracking employee information, managing
promotions and transfers, and keeping data current are huge logistical challenges
— not to mention a major time constraint for your HR department and
managers. In fact, the larger your workforce, the more you’ll appreciate the kind
of assistance you get from an automated solution like Lawson Personnel
You must track a wide range of essential workforce data, such as emergency
contacts, work restrictions, employee profiles, performance reviews and
credentials. Lawson Personnel Administration provides fast access to this
information. It can help simplify other everyday activities, as well, from following
up and reporting on work-related injuries to setting up and managing
employee training.
Within Lawson Personnel Administration is a powerful Position Management
component. This Position Control functionality provides a complete picture of
your workforce tracking attributes of each position for up to 98 active positions
per employee. A powerful tool for those organizations with employees working
concurrently in multiple positions with incremental FTE
allocations. In addition to providing a complete picture of your workforce,
Position Control allows you to budget for current and future openings — even
create “what-if ” scenarios with preliminary budgets for open positions, current
employees and contract labor.
Empower Your Employees and Managers
Employees who are given more control over their own careers are more likely
to be satisfied and to remain with your organization for a longer tenure. In other
words, you’re less likely to lose the knowledge and expertise you’ve developed
over time.
Lawson Human Capital Management includes highly flexible self-service
capabilities that allow employees to manage a broad range of information and
tasks, from updating personal data in their personnel record and enrolling in
benefits to checking on open positions and registering for needed training.
Managers also benefit from Lawson’s self-service functionality. From their
personal computer, they can monitor information, such as pay history on
their direct reports, as well as opening job requisitions, carrying out personnel
actions and collaborating with employees on training opportunities and
career advancement.
In addition, employees and managers can receive automatic notifications in
advance of license and certification expirations, ensuring that renewals are
completed on a timely basis.
The advantages of Lawson self-service extend well beyond the employees and
managers who use it. HR staff are relieved from many routine administrative
tasks and paperwork, allowing them to focus on more strategic activities.
Tasks completed through Lawson self-service applications trigger updates to the
appropriate Lawson Human Capital Management solutions. For example, when
an employee enrolls in a benefit, this information is automatically relayed to
Lawson Payroll, where the employee’s deduction is created.

Access to Business Intelligence…
and Beyond
But there’s more, much more, to Lawson than simply automating and integrating
routine activities.
By joining Lawson Human Capital Management solutions with Lawson Reporting
Suite, you gain access to business intelligence, as well as analytical and reporting
tools, to help you manage your human capital for maximum strategic impact.
Because your decision makers aren’t tied to their desks eight hours a day, Lawson
has developed advanced solutions to ensure the delivery of vital information
and to automate the flow of essential processes.
What if executives, managers and employees could be automatically notified via
email, Web portal, voicemail, cell phone or PDA whenever specific events occur?
And what if this same system delivered relevant, filtered data, along with links to
allow immediate action and collaboration?
For instance, you may want department managers to receive early notification
when key positions are filled or eliminated. Personnel actions of this nature usually
affect multiple areas of the organization, potentially creating new opportunities
— or impediments to work in progress. Besides keeping managers in the loop,
Lawson Smart Notification™ a Lawson Reporting Suite solution, would enable
managers to respond quickly, providing assurance that projects stay on track with
minimal disruption.
Of course, bringing issues to their desired resolution necessitates appropriate
protocols and processes. By utilizing Lawson ProcessFlow, you receive the
confidence that every requirement has been met.
Let’s look at the example of a manager who requests a salary increase for a
direct report, but the amount exceeds the organization’s guidelines for that
position.The system identifies the increase as being nonconforming, then permits
the manager to launch an electronic approval process, using Lawson ProcessFlow.
The approval process follows a predetermined path through the appropriate
management team members all the way through resolution. At any time, the
manager can check on the status of the approval: who has signed off and whether
the request has been escalated to a another level.
In short, Lawson helps you create an environment where decision makers are
held accountable, employees are treated fairly and costs are brought
under control.
