The fast, effective and efficient administration of routine HR tasks is an important factor in the way HR departments are viewed within the organisation.   A rapid response to a request for a reference to support a key employee’s mortgage application or the accurate completion of salary increases may be small and mundane matters but can have a large negative impact on employee motivation if not completely accurately and an time.
