See an 80% Reduction in HR Administration with eConnect

eConnect has been proven to reduce HR administration by up to 80%. The system achieves this reduction by generating all key documentation covering the life cycle of an employee. Stored in a secure central location, data can be easily accessed for future auditing purposes and GDPR compliance. Should you ever be challenged, the online system provides an audit trail which can demonstrate that best practice has been followed.

To effectively manage staff absence, eConnect provides access to our cloud-based Absence Management System. Available online 24/7, this easy to use transparent system treats employeess fairly and allows employers to stay in full control of their business.

HR Industry Leaders

As industry leaders, HR:4UK introduced the very first online HR system to the UK, as well as the first cloud-based employment handbook. Our systems are unique within the industry as they automatically update HR documentation to ensure businesses are compliant with any legislative changes.

Meet Employment Law Changes From April 2020

From April 2020, employment law changes came into force stating that all employees and workers must receive written Contracts of Employment right from their first day of work. eConnect can help businesses meet this legal requirement. Contact us today to learn more.

Absence Management System

HR:4UK’s Absence Management System provides a simple solution for businesses to plan and manage employee absence. Managed through eConnect and access for employees via the Employee Portal, this cloud-based system is entirely paperless, limiting unnecessary paperwork from the office and storing data safely and securely from an easily accessible central hub.

One of the outstanding features of the Absence Management System is that it is a fully transparent shared resource, allowing you and your team to see who's booked annual leave and for when. This provides a much fairer system for both employees and managers that has been a welcome addition from the businesses we work with. This cuts down on time needed to organise staff holidays and allows you to focus on doing the important jobs.

The Absence Management System can be accessed 24/7 from all devices including phones, tablets and computers. Employees can request annual leave and check their remaining holiday allowance from anywhere at their leisure, and managers can approve their own team members' absence both in house and remotely or delegate approval requests to other department heads.

All request and approval emails are fully automated with an efficient and transparent system that has been well received by both management and employees.

The Absence Management System will also log absences other than holiday entitlement, such as sick leave, maternity/paternity leave etc. This enables management to see who is off, when, how often and why and make the most informed decisions when they are needed.

Comprehensive absence reports can be exported, allowing management to establish common reasons for absence, the average amount of time people are away from work and which employees are most frequently absent.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes have benefitted from a more streamlined and accessible system with both employers and employees finding this an easy and convenient online tool to manage staff absences. By centralising all absence data in one place, employers can simply and effectively manage, approve and review absence, helping you to stay fully in control of your business without cluttering your office with paperwork.

5 Star Customer Testimonials

Jane Nunn | HR Manager | Lysander Place Holdings Group Ltd 

"With a total of 150 employees across three sister companies each specialising in the areas of building, roofing and scaffolding, Lysander have been a client of HR:4UK for 20 years. 

Having the support from HR:4UK is invaluable. Having access to unlimited advice is reassuring, as they talk you through every step to make sure you are doing the right thing legally. Without HR:4UK, I would never be able to do this job properly, which could leave our company exposed and at risk.

Using HR:4UK’s on-line employee management system, e-Connect, I can store all important employee information and issue the staff contracts using templates prepared by HR:4UK. Employees can then easily access their mobile and tablet friendly electronic staff handbooks which contain their contracts and policies. All of which are automatically updated by HR:4UK whenever there are any changes in legislation, again making sure that our company is compliant. Whilst they perform this work for us behind the scenes, their newsletters also keep me up to date with all the current changes."

Rajinder Gohlar | Postmaster | Spring Corner Post Office

“As an owner of a busy Post Office and employer, I needed to furlough staff and provide employment contracts using HR:4UK’s eConnect system. But firstly, I needed to be taught how to use this online employee management system. Tracey from HR:4UK stepped in to provide me with training and I was very impressed by her patience and professionalism. Not being very technical, I was grateful for the time she spent making sure that I understood where to get the information from and how to access the forms and contracts so that I could produce these correctly.”

“I’ve been with HR:4UK for over a year and have been recommending their PostmasterHR services to other Postmasters. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else for HR”
