Time & People announced Deputy partner of the year 2017

I was shocked to receive the partner of the year award for Deputy on the eve of Xerocon 2017. At an event held for Deputy partners in Melbourne the night before Xerocon Deputy introduced Servicem8 as a new integration partner and also announced emerging partner of the year along with partner of the year.

Workplace compliance – How do you manage your scheduled employees compliance?

Deputy has had for a long time the ability to record skills/qualifications against an individual however Deputy lacked any real compliance by having no checks and balances against the qualification entered into the system.

We now have a game changer…..Deputy now includes the ability to not only register the skill/qualification you can now enter details around the qualification including expiry dates so you can be notified.

 

So, what’s new exactly?

  • Manage Expiry – Set expiry dates so you manage training that requires renewal. Also, if training expires, Deputy will automatically warn you
  • Upload a File – Keep full documentation/photo/certificate of all your training. So if you are ever audited, it’s there in a few clicks!
  • Enter a Comment – Leave a quick note to provide additional information about your training requirements


A valid drivers license

To help with the new elements in training, we’ve also introduced new icons to keep you aware
Here’s what each of them mean:

The ‘ticked’ icon means that the training requirement is still valid, and has not yet expired.

The ‘paper clip’ icon indicates that there’s a file uploaded for this training requirement.

The ‘speech bubble’ icon means that there’s comment attached to this training requirement.

The ‘warning’ icon means that the current training module has already expired.

How does it work?

Start by editing your employee’s profile and scrolling to the Job Information section. Then, add a training requirement and click on the ‘Edit’ icon to add further details.

Watch how easy this is to set up

Deputy introduce paid breaks – making compliance even easier

Last month Deputy released a new feature – Paid Breaks.

 

What does this mean?

You can now ask employees to sign out and in for breaks giving you an electronic easy to understand report showing the breaks taken while the employee continues to get paid as required. Previously you could not do this as the employee if they signed into a break would not get paid.

What should you do?

Deputy says…Relieve your employees from all duties during their breaks – (Pay close attention to this one). Ensure your staff are not pressured to work during their allocated break times. IF they’re working at any capacity during their break, you’ll be liable to pay them in addition to their entitled wage.

Setting up paid breaks is easy…register to start a 30 day trial and book in training to get your employees signing in and out electronically.

It is now even easier to import your data in XERO….

Deputy release extension lab – now you can even have more with your scheduling

Speeding up the time spent scheduling then managing time sheets for any business with more than 50 staff is right up there on top of the wish list. Deputy have released a bag of goodies that now make Deputy more efficient than ever before….Let some of these options loose in your data set giving yourself more time to do other work.

1/ When adding an employee you can now add automatically to all locations, perfect for every company that has casual labour and multiple locations like security companies, labour hire and more.

2/ Calendar reminders, you can now set work related reminders within Deputy, remind yourself about birthdays (post publicly for all to see in the news feed)

This is one of my favorites, we have all wanted this for a long time even before Deputy was invented.

3/ Send a notification to an employee who has forgotten to clock off. One area all payroll people spend way to much time is chasing non compliant employees, missing time sheets, missing tax forms, missing super forms, we should not have to chase people for these basic requirements.  Employees will get sick of getting the messages reminding them to sign out as they forgot making employees more compliant.

4/ Another cracker….send a message to an employee just before the start of shift to remind the employee to sign on, the more employees sign in and sign out the less work payroll has to do :)

Open shifts have made scheduling easier than ever…another of my favorites

5/ Open shifts allow keen employees to pick up extra work, just publish your open shifts allowing the employees skilled to fill the roll to take the extra shifts. Managers can now get an automated message when an open shift has not been filled, you set the amount of time before the shift is due to start to get your reminder, set 2 hours and you will get a notification 2 hours before the shift is due to start letting you know the shift is still open.

There is so much more in Deputy that will change the way you schedule your staff forever…Start a 30 day trial
