HR teams can:
CIPHR HR can help you manage complex work patterns – with employees working flexibly or on zero-hour contracts – by becoming your central source of essential people data, while also giving you access to an ecosystem of partners and solutions through CIPHR Connect.
You can also use CIPHR’s API – which enables data to be sent from CIPHR HR to other systems and to be received by CIPHR HR from other systems – to integrate CIPHR HR with a range of rostering and workforce management solutions such as HFX. Its configurable SaaS time and attendance solutions make it quick and easy to create staff schedules and handle holiday, shift and time-off requests.
HFX also has over 80 clocking options to choose from, ranging from biometric and mobile devices to card readers. Its advanced connectivity also means you can keep existing time recording devices.
CIPHR’s identity and background checking functionality connects people data between the CIPHR Connect suite of solutions and Experian, empowering you to run background checks quickly and easily for both new candidates and existing employees, while at the same time maintaining data accuracy.
HR teams in manufacturing companies 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 or candidate, including:
Against each check, you can record the validity, expiry dates, relevant documents, and any other pertinent information.
From sickness to holidays and 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, and log absences including holiday, annual leave and sickness. HR managers can also 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 track and manage absences accurately.
For companies in the manufacturing industry, skilled workers are essential to ensuring optimum efficiency and productivity – but they can be difficult to find and attract. CIPHR’s applicant tracking system (ATS), CIPHR iRecruit, enables you to find the best candidates with the right skillset.
CIPHR iRecruit – which can be integrated with CIPHR HR – enables you to publish vacancies to multiple websites, job boards, agencies, and social media channels, streamlining and simplifying the hiring process.
Once hired, you can use CIPHR Onboarding to make all staff feel like valued members of your company 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.
When employees are out and about on the job, and not always at their desk, how can you ensure that they know about the latest updates or business developments?
With CIPHR’s mobile functionality, you can provide users with fast and secure access to their core employee data on a range of devices. Via their mobile phone, users can search for colleagues through the employee directory, review holiday entitlement, submit leave requests, and view all time off. Managers can also review and update team information quickly and easily.
“It is a huge benefit that staff can log in from absolutely anywhere. It has helped to achieve total buy-in across the company, from the CEO down to staff in our branches.”
For companies in the manufacturing industry, HR software can help automate HR processes, improve efficiency, and create a happier, skilled workplace.
