Engage shop floor teams wherever they are via the HR software app

As your manufacturing and production teams are rarely desk-based, the People HR mobile app means employees, wherever they are on site, can keep their data and documentation up to date, check holiday entitlement, and request time-off. They can chat securely with managers and HR, receive virtual ‘Thanks Badges’ for jobs well done, and get alerts for company updates to further drive engagement.

Capacity planning just got easier with the people planner

As a manufacturer, you’ll always get busy periods. Multiple holidays get booked quickly and people-power runs low. ‘Lock’ these days to ensure your shifts are adequately staffed and production is undisrupted. With full transparency of who is on and off shift – you will never have to crosscheck spreadsheets again, and can respond quickly and fairly to time-off requests. No more paper-forms or lengthy approval processes, absences can be tracked and added to your people planner in seconds.

Manage unplanned absences with insightful reporting

Short, frequent, unplanned absences can be surprisingly disruptive to manufacturing schedules – and more difficult to spot than longer absences. With our HR software for manufacturing, you’ll have built-in Bradford Factor scoring at your fingertips. You can easily calculate the impact of absences to your manufacturing business, so you can manage it accordingly. Heat maps can also help you identify trends, such as consistent patterns of absence that could, for example, be managed by a change to shifts.

Absence Management Software

Streamline tricky manufacturing recruitment

Hire the manufacturing candidates you need, when you need them, with our live Applicant Tracking System in People HR. No matter what your level of HR experience, the HR software mobile app helps you create and publish job vacancies, score applicants against key criteria, and on-board new employees with ease. The app also allows new employees to update their contact and payroll data, submit documentation and e-sign forms, without the need for a PC or printer.
