Human Resources: HCM - Employee Self-Service


E-forms solutions for employee self-service

At any company, employees need to interact with HR forms for multiple reasons — adding a dependent to a W-4, submitting a paid-time-off (PTO) request, updating emergency contact information and more. Typically, this involves an e-mail-driven process that requires multiple steps and interaction with the HR team, or, at some companies, even the exchange of interoffice envelopes. Adding to this redundant, slow and inefficient process, an HR staff member then must scan the forms into the content and document management (ECM/EDM) system and manually update records in the HR application.

With the Employee Self-Service solution, part of Formatta’s HCM offering, the paper, delays and hassle go away. Now, an employee can access the e-form they need from a secure portal, complete it online or offline, and authorize it with a digital signature. Upon submittal, an HR associate (and, if needed, the employee’s supervisor) receives an e-mail notification and clicks a link to view and interact with the form if needed. Formatta automatically updates the personnel record and archives the completed form in the ECM/EDM system. Even if you have an electronic process, Formatta takes it to the next level.
