Setting up employee benefits is set to remain one of the most automated processes of HR departments, which could offer an opportunity for employee benefits providers.

The forecast is part of a report on automation of HR processes by CareerBuilder with 53 per cent of employers saying that setting up employee benefits is already an automated process in their organization.

This would seem to create greater opportunity for those employee benefits providers who can offer better integration with automated systems, with those that cannot losing out.

Although cost and time savings are the top reasons for automating, reduction of errors is also a key factor.
