Customising onboarding and employee file fields - HR Web Platform

Overview

As an organisation, you many need to collect and store employee data tailored to your business' specific needs. These could be questions such as what dietary requirements they have for catering events, what software they are most familiar with, right through to what parking spot they use daily.

The Custom Fields feature also allows you to do just this, with the ability to ask a free text, single select or multi-select question to your employees, with the ability to set the user visibility, editing and location of those questions. You can also use this feature to edit any information if it changes and delete a record if it is no longer required.

HR Best Practise

We would recommend you make custom fields view-only for your managers and fully editable for your employees. Mark the field as mandatory if you need to collect the data for compliance purposes or for other mandatory reasons. Enable the capture field during onboarding option if you need to capture information at the start of their employment, for example, to determine a uniform size or laptop preference.

If you are adding a field that is not related to onboarding, use the Send an Email Notification to your Employees option to make sure you alert your employees to the new field requirement. Employee can find the Custom Fields feature in their employee file under Additional Information.
