Yes! But don’t worry, employees will only have limited system access, and they won’t be able to see any confidential data that they don’t have permission to view.

With People HR, you can engage your entire workforce with employee self-service. This means that employees can see their own HR record, in order to view things like payslips and training documents, while being able to perform basic HR functions such as submitting leave requests or asking their managers to approve a timesheet.

Managers get a slightly boosted set of permissions, so that they can help to manage details for people in their team.

And as the system administrator, you will have full control over everything that goes in and out of your HR system.

Our friendly training team can provide on-demand training, from either a range of standard courses or, if you have more specific needs, can tailor training to your particular requirements.

No! People HR is what we call an “SaaS solution” – meaning it exists completely in the cloud. This means that there’s nothing to download, nothing to install, and you can access your entire HR system via any browser on any device.

Unlike outdated on-premise systems, which require expensive IT maintenance and regular manual updates, People HR is maintained in the background by our expert IT technicians. You don’t need any in-house IT support, and we perform all updates in the cloud, meaning whenever you log in to People HR you’re always accessing the latest version of the software.

With People HR, payroll is even easier than ever before. This is because you can easily connect People HR to payroll software such as Access Payroll, Sage Payroll, Xero and many more.

Alternatively, you can connect your system to a payroll processing service, such as Access Payroll Services or ADP. This stops you having to constantly duplicate data across multiple systems, and helps you to create a seamless HR and payroll function that works hand in hand.

People HR has a range of integrations with office tools including Word, Excel, Google Docs and calendars such as Outlook and Google Calendar. People HR is designed to integrate as seamlessly as possible with other applications to really drive productivity.
