3. Can BambooHR streamline our core HR processes?

In dynamic companies, core HR tasks need to be efficient and pain-free to save precious time and minimize employee frustration. In many companies, onboarding and time management can be time-consuming and repetitive. A good HRIS platform should automate and expedite core HR tasks that are a frequent source of dread.
