Features

Features

A powerful HR confidential documents and records system.

Activ Documents can be added to Activ Absence or Activ Appraisals to give your HR team and administrators access to a documents library that can store confidential employee documents and records securely off-site linked to their employee personnel file

This digital document storage add-on is only visible to your HR team and provides the benefit of a completely paper free office for a nominal extra cost per employee.

Digital storage of personnel files

Example 1 – if you have employees who are drivers for your organisation, then you would need to hold evidence of their driver’s license, vehicle insurance etc. These documents can be uploaded together with any applicable dates such as insurance expiry date. You can also configure reminder notification emails to let you or your managers know that a document is due to expire and needs renewing.

 

Example 2 – if you have an employee who has received a disciplinary procedure, then you would need to keep a full audit trail of the incident together with any associated communications and the outcome with disciplinary actions. In this scenario you could use the expiry date to prompt a review of the improvements in the employee’s performance

 

There is no restriction on the type of documents you store so that you can upload Word or PDF documents, Excel files, photographs and even recordings of meetings held with the employee. Activ Documents also has a ‘reporting’ function that enables HR to see at-a- glance what documents are stored and if there are any outstanding for each employee.
