Holiday calendar and planner facilities also give managers complete control over staff availability. Managers can also view the employee details instantly.

Up-to-the-minute HR information

Real-time updating of the database ensures that users are making decisions based on up-to-the-minute information that complies with statutory, audit and data validation procedures. Every database change is captured in the audit log. The efficiency of workflow will drive profitability using HR21 to eliminate manual processes such as approvals:

  • Email notifications – are automatically directed to managers and employees advising actions that have occurred
  • Leave applications – are completed by the employee and the request is automatically available to the manager for approval.

  • Timesheet entry – hours worked are keyed in by the employee and sent automatically to the manager for approval.
  • Performance review – review performance against previous approved KPIs
  • Vacancy application – allow employees to apply for internal vacancies
  • Expense claims – view a copy of the claims prior to approval
  • Accidents records – incidents and safety with attachments are always available

This automatic approval processes eliminates manual form completion thus saving time and money. Once approved has occurred, the HR database and audit logs are automatically updated.
