Performance Management

Workforce Management

Time-Off Management. Automate the process for employees to request time off and managers to approve requests. Within that process, both employees and managers are notified of potential conflicts to make approval decisions easier while ensuring staffing levels are adequate for operations. Time-off balances are automatically updated once requests are approved, and companies can set controls to enforce policies so employees aren’t taking too much time off —or the company isn’t paying out too much when an employee leaves.

Compensation and Benefits Tracking. Track employee compensation and benefits information for reporting and analysis. HR admins and managers gain a visual timeline to see when changes to compensation occurred throughout the employee lifecycle.

Workforce Planning. Combined with NetSuite Planning and Budgeting, companies can create budgets and hiring plans by automatically modeling future workforce needs using actual payroll, expense and headcount information.

Workforce Management

Workforce Engagement

Self Service. Through the Employee Center, both employees and managers have self-service capabilities to perform common tasks — update addresses, add bank accounts, view time off balances, monitor goal progress and see copies of paychecks and expense reports. Managers can initiate changes, such as promotions or transfers, and approve time-off requests. This reduces reliance on HR staff and cuts the costs of processing common tasks while improving HR service delivery.

Recognition. Recognizing employees for career achievements and milestones. SuitePeople Kudos provides a way to foster a positive work culture, increase retention and decrease turnover costs by enabling employees to publicly recognize their colleagues for their contributions and achievements. Use data from Kudos to build performance metrics and identify top talent during performance reviews.

Onboarding/Offboarding. Create onboarding checklists to help new hires feel welcome and be productive immediately. Assign tasks to other employees to make the onboarding process more efficient and complete. Integrated purchasing requests ensure employee equipment is ready on Day 1. Offboard leavers using checklists to ensure company property is returned, employees receive final paychecks and exit interviews are completed.

Workforce Engagement
