Module: Learning and Development 

1.  Up-gradation of Training cost 

There is an improvement in the Learning and Development module with respect to training costs. Earlier training costs associated with an employee training showed the current value of the training, now a fix has been applied so that the actual historical cost of the training incurred at the training point in time is available.

This is visible in the Employee Information Portal in the profile of an employee as well as the Trainings Attended report in the Reports drop-down menu.

However, there will be no impact of the information mentioned above on the training programs manually added under the Trainings Attended tab in my profile of a user.

Employwise has a notification that allows alerts to be set up a certain number of days before and/or after a contract employee’s contract expiry date. Multiple notifications can be configured on different days before and after the contract expiry date. These can be sent to the Employee whose contract is expiring or has expired, the Employee’s Supervisor, Approver’s Functional manager, L2 Manager, L3 Manager or to the HR Head. This existing capability has been updated and now, the employee relationship officer (ERO)  has also been added to this list of people that the notification can be sent to.


Enhancements in Leave and Attendance Module - 07-November-2019

  • Read: 12 times

Thursday, November 7, 2019 | 2 New Features Added.

Module: Leave and Attendance 

1. Manage unauthorized absence through the automatic application of leave

Often employees remain ‘Absent’ in EmployWise because neither they did mark attendance nor did they apply for leave or a past attendance or an out-on-work. EmployWise payroll does not count these days in the paid days for the month.

If the employee later ‘regularises’ an Absent day EmployWise will also automatically compute and pay arrears in the next payroll run. There is also a provision that allows HR to mark such a day as a day of leave and the employee would not be able to cancel this leave.

Customers, especially those who do not use EmployWise payroll find it difficult to process arrears and had asked for a method to automatically, mark these absences as leaves days after some time.

We have now introduced a new “Manage Absences’ feature. Now a one-time rule can be configured that will automatically in one go mark all absences as leaves between after a configurable number of days. You can also configure the order in which leaves will be applied so that if one type of leave does not have adequate balance, the next configured leave type balance will be used.

When a day of absence has thus been marked as leave, an email notification can also be configured to go to the concerned employee that such an HR action has been taken.

If you need to configure this for your organization please contact EmployWise Support.

2. Restriction on the number of past attendance request days

Several customers gave us feedback that employees often misuse the past attendance option by  making past attendance requests just before payroll for several days of the payroll month. Managers either do not recall or do not check and approve these requests.

A configuration now supports restricting the number of past attendance request days in each calendar month to a certain number of days with an alert if the employee exceeds the permitted number of request times.

If you need to configure this for your organization please contact EmployWise Support.
