BrightHR is the perfect tool for remote staff management. We’ve also added some new features, such as VaccTrak, which will help you manage the challenges posed by COVID-19 in the workplace.

Here are five exciting features you’ll benefit from:  

1. BrightHR: Make staff announcements at the tap of a button

Got an announcement to make to all your staff? No problem.

You can type out an announcement (up to 100 characters) and send it directly to your employees as an in-app notification.

This feature makes it easier for you to communicate important updates and information to your staff, even while they’re working from home.

2. BrightHR: Brand-new holiday setting

Here at BrightHR, we listen to customer feedback and after seeing employers call out for more control over their holiday settings, we created this next feature.

Now you can switch on a setting that stops staff from deleting pre-approved holidays without talking to you first.

This feature will improve communication between you and your staff and help to make sure your people are taking enough downtime, even while they’re in lockdown.

3. PoP (proof of purchase): Manage employee expenses on the go

PoP by BrightHR is an expenses app that makes managing employee business costs quick and simple. You get a notification whenever an employee logs an expense, and you can approve it with a swipe. You also have the option to chat with your employees in case you’d like more details about an expense claim.

You can easily view, and export expense details submitted and save them as a spreadsheet. With PoP, you can also get accurate mileage calculations instantly. Here’s how it works:

Your staff enters details of where they’ve travelled to and the cost per mile. The app automatically calculates the distance and the cost of their travel. Next, you get a notification of their request, which you can approve or decline wherever you are.

4. Blip: Manage staff in various locations

Blip is a clocking in and out app that’s exclusive to BrightHR customers, and now it comes with a clever geolocation feature.

You use the app to create a geofence—a virtual boundary—around your workplace or an employee’s house. Blip then picks up your employee’s location and asks them to clock in or out. It’s that simple.

This new feature helps you to see exactly where your staff have worked and how long for—which is ideal when managing employees who are working from home.

Plus, as Blip is a completely contactless clocking system, it’s perfect for you and your staff to use during the COVID-19 pandemic.

5. VaccTrak: Keep track of who’s had the COVID-19 vaccine in your workplace

Our exclusive online tool lets you update your employee profiles to document who’s had the COVID-19 vaccine.

You can download regular reports and record proof of employee vaccination as well. 

You can also access professional letter templates to encourage your staff to get the vaccine. We have prepared an exclusive vaccine awareness e-course for you to share with your staff. It’ll help answer any complex questions they may have.
