Self-Service Payslips

- There is a significant cost in providing printed payslips, sealed in individual envelopes, one delivered to each employee every month. At perhaps £1.50 per employee per payslip, even for an organisation with fewer than 100 employees this will amount to a few thousand pound a year. If employees have access to their HR records via Employee Self-Service, payslips can be made available to them electronically. In fact all of the employee’s payslips going back in time can be made...

Register Employee as a Leaver

- People Inc. manages a wide variety of employee-related information; each employee record will include information about absence, pay and benefits, training, etc. When an employee is marked as a leaver, all of these records need to be reconciled. This not only ensures that any 'future' bookings that have been added do not remain within the system, but also that the headcount and reporting structure is updated. Information about leavers it retained within People...

Social Mobility Survey

- A number of clients have asked in general terms about conducting employee surveys using People Inc. and more specifically, how they can monitor or look at more-detailed information on social mobility in the workplace. New measures were recently announced to try to improve social mobility at work and unlike many other aspects of equal opportunities, there were few recognised methods to measure or manage the related information.
