Where do I find HR platform admin settings?

You can find most HR platform admin settings under General Settings and we recommend if you are a new admin you familiarise yourself with the existing setup selections. Of particular note, Company Settings will give you an excellent overview of your organisation’s basic configuration settings.

How do I update employee file data when connected to payroll? 

It is important to remember Employment Hero is your source-of-truth for employee data and you should always update employee file details on Employment Hero when connected to payroll. As soon as you click “save” after making an edit, the change will sync to your payroll platform immediately. The data will only flow automatically from Employment Hero to your payroll platform as this data connection is not bidirectional, i.e. data changes will not sync from your payroll platform into the HR platform.

What are teams?

Teams help you organise your employees into groups that enable you to automate the assignment of compliance requirements such as policies, certifications and onboarding checklist tasks.

Did you know...

The management dashboard is a great tool to help managers and admins keep on top of the HR related action items that require attention. Why not remind your managers about the dashboard to help keep them on top of things?

Communicating Employment Hero HR to staff

Up-to-date employee file data is the foundation to a solid HR information system. We suggest periodically asking staff to log in and check their details to ensure your data is rock solid. Our clients also find that explaining the impact of updating (or not updating) details in your call-to-action improves rates of compliance.
