People Inc. Product Update

23rd June 2021

Focusing on Employee Self-Service features, this People Inc. update includes new functionality added to the Training Registration feature, the Employee Directory, the Absence Request Wizard, the ESS Scheduler, the Statistics tool, the Training Matrix, and the Salary Review Manager plug-in.

Request a call

If you would like to discuss this People Inc. upgrade in more detail, we can ask one of our team to call you.

Most of the features included in this upgrade were introduced last year in response to requests from a selection of system users. We have now had the opportunity to review the feedback we received, and have made some changes and enhancements to a number of different areas.

This upgrade is available free-of-charge to all organisations that currently use the People Inc. HR system. It is however worth noting that, with the exception of the updated Salary Review Manager tool, the features included as part of this change are accessed from within the Employee Self-Service module (and some users will not have access to this module currently).

Employee training registration feature

Training Registration

The Training Registration feature is an inclusive, fast and efficient way to keep your organisation's training records up to date. Encourage staff to add their own training records (or ask managers to enter training details for their team) via their ESS log-in, while retaining control over the information they submit. This feature helps to ensure you record comprehensive employee training details, and that the organisation complies with employment legislation.

Interactive staff telephone list

Employee Directory

An efficient way to ensure that contact details are readily available to all staff, at all times. Having an up to date, centralised, employee directory showing a list of employee details (customised to suit the needs of the organisation) ensures that staff can always find contact details for their colleagues. And when staff are not at work, or unavailable for some reason, this information is also shown in the directory.

Employee holiday requests

Holiday Requests

A streamlined, intuitive absence request system with a significantly improved user interface that assists and guides staff and managers through the absence management process. Far quicker and far more effective than a paper-based (or e-mail based) approach. At any time of day, employees can see how much leave they have left to take and can view their bookings (and bookings for their colleagues) in a shared calendar. Detailed records are retained automatically (including an audit trail of updates).

key dates in a calendar view


Never miss a key date or a deadline. The Scheduler tool improves communication and efficiency within the organisation and ensues that HR processes and records are completed or updated expediently. Based on centralised HR information, the Scheduler provides line managers with access to key dates for their team and provides HR with the means to delegate responsibility for tasks and actions.

monitor performance and trends


The ESS Statistics tool is designed to enhance planning and productivity by showing a graphical representation of the availability of resource, and key absence data points. It highlights trends, provides a comparison of team data with benchmark results from the entire organisation, and raises the profile of racial and gender equality within the organisation.

plan and manage employee training

Training Matrix

Providing the right training is key to having an effective and safe workplace; it also helps to motivate the workforce. The Training Matrix can be used to demonstrate compliance with legislation (including Health & Safety at work). It ensures that employees receive the training they need, and highlights issues, for example when training is about to expire.
