Are you having a hard time keeping up with employee requests for HR information? Or managing training and qualifications information so that it’s always up-to-date? Or documenting when employees receive and read important company policies? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then it’s probably a good time to consider adding enable Self Service (eSS) to your HR toolkit.
Rather than becoming bogged down performing HR admin, give your employees access to their HR data so they can perform everyday HR tasks themselves. This way, employees won’t need to ask you for help all the time and you’ll have more time to focus on what really matters, your people and strategy jobs.
What are the advantages of eSS? We’ve listed 7 awesome benefits to having an employee self-service below:
- It’s a win/win situation
By reducing your employees’ reliance on you or your HR manager to perform administrative support tasks, you can cut costs and response times while improving HR efficiency, productivity and compliance.
enable Self Service feature empowers employees to have a much higher level of control over their data. This, in turn, reduces the amount of routine data queries, requests, and transactions they make directly to you or your HR staff.
- Paperless on-boarding and completion of other HR tasks
Paperless on-boarding and management is easy with eSS. Streamline on boarding with electronic document execution, digitally sign new starter forms, implement configurable workflows and capture bank details, training and other key documents directly from the candidate or worker for an improved employee experience.
- Update personal information
With eSS, your employees can view and update their personal information such as home address, contact details, and emergency contacts online. Even better, they can do this on their smartphone, tablet or desktop devices, anywhere, any time. So, even if they are away on a business trip or working from home, they can still easily log into their account to view or update their data.
- Update training, qualifications and licenses
With eSS, employees can also log their training history, and update trade or professional qualifications as they are attained. At the same time, whenever updates are made, or when licenses or competencies such as First Aid Certificates are due to expire, managers are automatically notified. This empowers all your workers to take more responsibility and proactively manage ongoing training and development requirements.
- Report hazards and incidents
In addition, a big part of enableHR is WHS management. With eSS, your employees can report or record hazards and incidents in a matter of a few clicks, while ensuring compliance with company policies and government regulations.
- Show due diligence
It’s critical that you have confirmation that your employees have both received and read your company HR policies or Code of Conduct. Through eSS, you can streamline administrative processes so your employees can acknowledge your company’s HR policies from within the self-service portal. You can see at a glance if any employees have not acknowledged a particular policy and follow up directly through the self-service portal.
- Save on cost, time AND resources
By empowering employees to handle routine HR admin themselves with direct data access, eSS not only reduces your organisation’s reliance on the HR manager, but as it’s paperless, it eliminates the often fractured and unreliable paper trail. In all eSS adds convenience, improves data accuracy, and control.
