Employee self-service portal

Employees can view company news, update personal information, request time off, and clock in/out. Additionally, they can view assigned company property and download shared documents. EffortlessHR eliminates the need for a standalone employee time clock or employee self-service portal software. It allows managers to see reports for their employees and manage those employees.

PTO tracker and leave management

The software enables employees to track holiday, sick, and vacation days. Furthermore, it offers detailed reporting of accrual balance changes. With each pay period, the system keeps track of accrual based on anniversary dates, hours per pay period, or a set number of hours given at the beginning of the year

Employee time clock

EffortessHR streamlines every aspect of time entry, recording, and reporting. Its time clock is simple, user-friendly, and accessible from any computer or smartphone. This feature is integrated into the HR database, and employees can clock in on the company’s branded employee portal.

Document cloud storage

Organizations can store all company and employee files in the cloud with EffortlessHR. Users can place files in separate virtual folders for compliance and upload private or shared company files. The software lets employees share organization charts, employee handbooks, and benefits information.
