Work with me – a way for effective cooperation and understanding

Shared by Agata • August 28, 2023

Mutual understanding is the key to effective communication, which is why we decided to create a place where employees can talk about themselves and learn something about others.

Answering a few questions will facilitate a substantive discussion, minimize misunderstandings and build a foundation of empathy, thanks to which employees better understand their needs, expectations, and cultural differences.

As part of the Work with me functionality, you receive a list of questions divided into thematic categories, under which you can:

  • introduce yourself to colleagues,
  • describe your preferred form of contact,
  • share information on how to work with you best,
  • what inspires you at work,
  • what are you interested in, and what do you do after work.

The new functionality can be found in the Core HR People module in the "Work with me" tab. You can add, edit, and delete your replies there and view your co-workers' replies.

With hints and suggested answers, your team can easily fill out the tab and get to know others. You don't have to answer all the questions – just answer the ones you consider most important.

Time & Attendance

Check the details of your working day in a new, refreshed view. We refreshed the look of the window with information about the working day. Now you can check all the information more conveniently thanks to the intuitive view.

The new view makes it easier to find out about the employee's tasks and see what they spend their time on. You can find there the information about:

  • working time,
  • start and end of the workday
  • work on projects,
  • breaks,
  • work time irregularities.

People Directory – Information about all employees at your fingertips

Shared by Agata • August 07, 2023

Save time on searching for employees' information. With the new People tab in the Core HR module, all employees can check the essential information, such as:

  • primary data (e.g., names, email, gender),
  • contact information.

As an administrator, you have a full access to the:

  • primary data,
  • organization structure (e. g. position, teams, managers),
  • employment details,
  • employee experience,
  • employee ID,
  • contact information,
  • documents,
  • entitlements,
  • leave and attendance requests.

You can restrict the access to the employees information according to your needs, so only authorized people can access them, e.g., managers can only see the documents and entitlement of their teams.

To place the widget on your screen, tap and hold the main screen, choose the "widgets" button, and choose the app from the list. You can choose how big the widget should be based on your needs.

Leave types description with markdown

Agata avatar
Shared by Agata • August 07, 2023

You have a possibility to create as many leave types as you need but to make sure your employees know how and when to use it, you also need a good description. That's why we created a space where you can write a description with all the necessary information.

To ensure your employees know how and when to use their leave, add a description of leave you're offering. From now, to highlight the most important information and format descriptions, you can use a Markdown.

Your employees can check the formated description of a given leave type in their Entitlement tab.

Shared by Agata • August 07, 2023

Until now, you could change the overview information about employees only in your Configuration panel. We add the Administration section to the People tab to make your people management more efficient.

From now on you can change overview information quickly from the People directory.
