The role of HR is changing and diversifying on an almost daily basis. The only way you can hope to keep up with growing demands on HR time is to pass on some of the work that can effectively be done in other, more time-efficient, ways. CIPHR Net, when teamed with CIPHR People, lets you do just that.
CIPHR Net helps to ease some of the administrative burden in HR by enabling employees to perform some update functions for themselves. This includes amending all kinds of straightforward personal details, such as notifying change of address or emergency contact, adding qualifications or requesting leave of absence.
Self Service HR - Line Management Portal
Line Management can also access the system to input information, employee development needs for example, or optionally view published reports such as department absence analysis. The process of authorising employee leave or conducting performance reviews can be carried out quickly, easily and without the need for a continuous flow of paper based information, and salary modelling and proposals can be carried out ready for update into CIPHR People.

Of course, careful checking and security procedures are built into the heart of CIPHR Net to ensure privacy and accuracy are never jeopardised. For instance, you can specify particular information categories, such as absence requests, that must be validated by authorised staff before they are accepted by the system and put into action.
Access privileges can be made at the set-up stage, page by page, so that you can individually determine the access level each employee has. For example, some may have view-only access to a particular page, while others are also able to update information.
The system also includes automated e-mail notification for management. Requests that require senior approval can be directed through for verification before they are accepted onto the system and the results automatically fed back via e-mail to the employee.
"We're already realising many benefits of the new system, not least of a greater level of visibility and reporting information. It's proving invaluable to our managers with the people management aspects of their role"
