As a cloud-based HR software solution, Appogee HR is ideal to support employees and managers to work from home. With many businesses choosing to allow employees to work away from the office, it is important to have the technology to support this and HR software is no different.
We have put together some useful tips on how you can use Appogee HR software to aid your employees in working from home.
Track & Report Remote Working
Being able to see who is going to be working remotely is essential to allow your business to run successfully when employees are not in the same location. In some cases, you may even need to implement an approval process, so you can control when someone is allowed to work from home and when you would rather they were present in the office.
Using Appogee HR you can set up as many different Leave & Sickness Types as you require. You may not be aware that in addition to the standard types such as Leave, Training, Jury Service, Company Event days etc, you can also set up Working From Home/Remote working. Once you have one or more of these remote working types set up, you can define an approval flow or choose if employees can self-approve, if a reason is required or even if you wish to have an icon associated with the type.
Full Access for Employees
If you do allow employees to work remotely, then there is no reason day to day tasks need to be put on hold. With access to Appogee HR from anywhere on any device, employees can continue to access and update their Employee Profiles, Records, Company Documents as well as being able to complete processes such as Performance Reviews and updating Goals.
The HR FUNCTION remains unaffected
Regardless of whether the whole business is working from home or just a few individuals, the HR role can continue as normal. If a new policy needs rolling out and acknowledging this can be actioned without delay and monitored as employees action the request. With continued full access to Appogee HR, Performance Reviews can still happen, Reports can be run, Employee Records updated and new starters can even be added to the system and given access to the Onboarding Portal provided.
Stay up to date
Keep in the loop with employee updates and changes by enabling Notifications. These can allow you to keep track of any changes employees make within the system and any significant dates which occur. No more hassling people to ask if they’ve updated their records, you can easily know with an email or in-app notification, especially handy if they’re not in the office to talk to!
All in all, if your business does allow for remote working, using Appogee HR alongside other cloud-based business solutions can help to support productivity and keep your HR processes running smoothly.
