With Ciphr HR, care homes can easily streamline and simplify people-related processes while also improving the security and accuracy of their people data – keeping staff, residents and volunteers safe as a result.
HR professionals can:
Employees and volunteers can:
Store and review your safeguarding checks in one place by using Ciphr HR’s safeguarding functionality.
You can create and retrieve information about employee and volunteer checks to comply with regulatory requirements and trigger notifications when checks need to be renewed to ensure they are always up to date.
Information about all compliance checks carried out against your staff is available in a single view, and access can be provided to the CQC if required. The information about checks carried out is not only available on a current basis but also at a point in time.
Ciphr’s identity and background checking functionality connects people data between Ciphr’s suite of solutions and Experian and TrustID, empowering you to run background checks quickly and easily for candidates, as well as for your existing employees and volunteers, while maintaining data accuracy.
HR can automatically initiate checks as specified and carry them out in the early stages of recruitment to ensure the right hire is made. This flexible system enables you to record details of any kind of check, for any employee, job candidate or volunteer, including:
Against each check, you can record the validity of checks, expiry dates, relevant documents, and any other pertinent information.
From sickness to holidays or annual leave, you can easily manage absences for your staff with the absence management tools within Ciphr HR.
Staff can see who else is off in their team or wider organisation, log absences including holiday, annual leave and sickness, while HR managers can view, verify and report on sickness and holiday. For employees on a flexible work pattern, Ciphr HR also allows them to select which days and hours they were absent, so managers can easily track and manage absences.
Use Ciphr iRecruit to publish vacancies to multiple websites, job boards, agencies, and social media channels, and to identify a talent pool of best-fit employees for your care home.
Once hired, use Ciphr Onboarding to make all staff feel like a valued member of the organisation by providing them with access to relevant policy documents, handbooks, FAQs, and multimedia presentations, and informing and educating them about your organisation’s structure, history, ethos, and culture.
Our learning management system, Ciphr LMS, helps you deliver and manage digital and on-the-job learning. Ciphr LMS can host bespoke content that you’ve designed in-house, as well as off-the-shelf content from specialist providers, on topics ranging from compliance (such as GDPR, safeguarding, and manual handling) to soft skills and management training
Ciphr HR’s timesheets functionality allows you to keep track of time that staff are working and manage costs appropriately.
Employees can submit the time they have worked for payment purposes and log time against residents and tasks, while HR can define those employees eligible for overtime payments and even accommodate tailorable breaks.
Work patterns, absence and overtime payments and rates are automatically available in the timesheets area of Ciphr HR. This helps HR regain control over overtime spend and ensure clarity around hours worked.
Ciphr HR can also integrate with rostering solutions to ensure your care home is always adequately staffed by people with the right skills, training and qualifications to look after the needs of your residents.
From managing flexible workers to ensuring that the best staff are looking after care home residents, HR teams in care homes have many responsibilities. With HR software such as Ciphr HR, organisations can automate HR processes, improve efficiency, and create a happier workplace.
