Keeping on top of employee records
We understand that HR administration can be time-consuming for your business.
When you employ staff — especially for the first time — there are several administrative tasks that you will need to do. As you grow your business and you start to hire more employees, day-to-day problems and paperwork can also build up. If you are drowning in holiday requests or experiencing problems with employees from calculating time off in lieu or sickness absence, we can help.
The HR Dept can introduce efficient processes and offer technology solutions that will dramatically reduce the time spent managing your HR administrative tasks and employee records.
Maintaining accurate employee records can make the difference if you need to address poor performance, timekeeping, or absence. Accurate data will support your payroll system and can be the key evidence you need to avoid a tribunal claim.
We’ll provide you with everything that you need to take on an employee and manage them. This includes helpful information on recruiting, holiday entitlement, statutory sick pay, attendance, and everything right through to what to do at the end of employment.

Comprehensive software focuses on the broad HR management tasks, whereas specialist software helps with one or two specific HR tasks.
HR software includes but is not limited to:
- Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS)
- Human Resources Management Systems (HRMS)
- Human Capital Management (HCM)

The software you require will depend on the tasks you need to complete. If you’re struggling to pinpoint which type of software you need, drop us an email or give us a call — we’d love to help you out.
What is included in The HR Dept Toolkit?
The HR Dept Toolkit is an all-in-one personnel administration system that features a holiday management tool, secure cloud storage for documents and employee records, company announcements, reports and more.
The Toolkit has been designed with SMEs in mind, and has everything you need to manage everyday admin tasks and track, monitor and engage your employees. Best of all, because it’s simple to set up and easy to use, there’s next to no learning curve.
What are the reasons why SME (small and medium enterprise) should adopt HR software?
With SMEs, work dependency on each employee can be extremely high. HR tasks are managed through endless spreadsheets and folders due to lower budgets and restricted resources. While this may appear manageable, a small error or slight drop in concentration can lead to a much bigger problem, like delays, fines and penalties due to non-compliance.
This is where HR software comes in. With everything in one place, nothing will be missed, and you can easily manage all your day-to-day tasks. This results in a streamlined workflow, better employee experience, more informed decision making, and compliance with statutory laws.
How do you keep track of employee information?
Without our software, tracking employee information is a time-consuming task with many spreadsheets, folders, and manual work.
HR software simplifies this process by putting everything in one place. From tracking employee training and performance to gauging and reporting on employee satisfaction, our software serves HR professionals with all the tools they need to track, monitor, and engage employees.
