Paychex Releases White Papers at SHRM 2011 on Ways to Improve Employee Performance and the Benefits of a Self-Service HR System

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Two new white papers from Paychex outline ways that human resource professionals can improve employee performance and deliver HR services online.

The white papers, Improving Performance - Helping Employees Step Up Their Game and Capitalizing on the Trend of Self-Service: a Win-Win for the Employer and the Employee, will be available at booth #2437, at the SHRM 2011 Annual Conference & Exposition, June 26-29, Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Companies seeking new tools and methods to drive employee performance, productivity, and satisfaction will find valuable insights in our latest white papers," said Andy Childs, vice president of marketing at Paychex. "The topics of employee performance and self-service HR solutions were selected because of their importance in fostering a culture of innovation and growth."

The first white paper focuses on how employers can attain and maintain peak performance from employees. Topics include the importance of employees finding purpose in their work, reasons employees fall short in performance, what motivates employees, critical job skills every employee needs in order to improve performance, and strategies for improving employee performance.

The second white paper provides an overview of self-service HR systems, which enable employee benefits, payroll, and scheduling to be managed online. The benefits of self-service HR solutions, including efficiency, accuracy, improved recordkeeping, and greater responsiveness to employees, are covered. The paper also looks at the necessary steps to help ensure the success of a self-service solution.
