Giving credit to the ‘little guy’ in your company

The PayrollHero Way
Giving credit where credit is due is an important task for managers to keep the morale of their employees up. Employees like to be noticed and praised for a job well done.

Why are managers not giving enough praise? Besides the fact that you are busy running around, taking care of daily operations; making sure everything is running as it should, finding out which employee did well for the last 4 weeks will take more effort. Most of the time, this task is not on the top of the priority list and so easily overlooked.

PayrollHero can help you look good to your employees!

Surely there are times where you wish you would have remembered to at least say ‘Good Job’ to Bob the cashier for working 8 hours and being the most helpful. Human errors like this can be avoided by using a simple app, where you can monitor your employees day to day work and track how they are performing accurately.

By using the employee feedback app, Daily Pulse, employees are able to ‘like’ their colleagues that was the most helpful at the end of the shift. Another plus, your customer can give their feedback using the Customer Feedback app too- by voting for the employee that was the most helpful to them.

You, the manager, will receive the data in real time via Xray Insights app. The app will show a clearer view of each employee performance and tracks the employee who is getting the most ‘likes’ on that particular shift. Information is readily available for you at a touch of a button. This makes your job so much easier! It also eliminate subjectivity in your decision as it is based on figures- not hearsay.

Work Place Transparency

At PayrollHero, we want to break the conventional workplace hierarchy by making information more transparent within the company. Using mobile or web apps, all managers can readily access whatever information required anytime, anywhere. We recognize that being on the ball is important when running a business- so time should not be wasted on you waiting for information from other managers.

The Data Might Even Surprise You! 

You may be glad to find out that the employee that is actually doing great is the person you least expect. It could very well be the person who is clearing the dishes- that is the most helpful employee among the rest and the most ‘likeable’ to your customers.

The app works by making sure every employee is acknowledged, from the chef to the janitor. You can be the best manager who knows exactly the deserving employees to give credit to at the end of the day.

Current Analytics Available via PayrollHero

Editors Note: This is another post by Kieran Peppiatt, Head of Client Success at PayrollHero.  Due to the overwhelming interest in our new Xray Insight pages he put together this post that explains the business intelligence that you can glean from PayrollHero.

With the launch of our new Xray Insights app we get a lot of customers asking us about what analytics we currently have on offer so I thought I share what is currently available. That said, we’d love to hear what you want to know about your employees.  We are constantly looking at ways to improve this area of PayrollHero and would welcome your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below.

Attendance Analytics

My Attendance

Here individual employees can see their own attendance for the current month. They can also view their overall ranking in the company and their correlation on specific dates against the company averages.

time and attendance analytics

Company Attendance Leaderboard

On this page you can see your employees overall ranking within the company. This is done by early, lates and absences.

You can also see a leaderboard of the employees with perfect attendance.

Summaries

Here you can see how things like the weather and commute distance affect your company’s attendance. Do more people come in late when it’s cloudy, or do people call in sick when it’s raining? Here you can see if weather has any correlation with your employee’s attendance

You can also see how the commute distance of your employees affects their punctuality.

Xray Insights

Xray insights is available for iOS devices. It is designed for company leaders who need a quick snapshot or insight into how their company is performing. The app is currently in beta and the reason for this is because we are looking for feedback from our clients on what snapshots they would like to view. If you’re management, leader or company owner please tell us the sort of information you would like to be able to view from your company in the comments below.

Overview

We speak to a lot of HR people and business owners and one thing they want to know is what their average employee looks like. With the overview page of Xray insights you can see that in an instant. It tells you what percentage of your company is male/female, the average gender, age and tenure of your employees.

Staffing Levels

Ever wondered who is working at your worksites right now?  Sometimes it’s good to know where your people are. Being able to get quick insight to if one of your branches is under or overstaffed is invaluable. With the staffing levels page on Xray Insights you can do exactly that.

Attendance Analytics

Just like the attendance feed in the app you can get the same information straight from your phone. We really appreciate that running a business can lead to a hectic lifestyle and your not always in front of a computer. We wanted to make sure that you can access the information that is important to you where ever you are.

iPad Only

Customer Feedback

Ever wanted to know which of your employees were doing a great job? Customer feedback lets your customers give a thumbs up any employee who wows them. You can then view the leaderboards to see who your customers love or who you might need help get ridiculously customer focussed!  The rankings for this are viewable via the Xray Insights app.

Daily Pulse

Ever wanted to get real feedback from your employees that isn’t biased or based any single employees opinion. Daily Pulse allows you to take measurements from your “crowd” of employees. Currently you can find out which employees are rated well by their peers. We will be introducing the ability to ask your own custom questions shortly.

Introducing Daily Pulse; Insight Through the Wisdom of Your Entire Workforce

The first new feature to come out of the PayrollHero Lab is Daily Pulse. One of the things we noticed in many of our clients businesses was how the feedback loop worked within the company. Managers report about their teams to their immediate bosses and those bosses reported to their direct boss. The feedback was sometimes quite biased and it was not the whole story. We wanted to find ways to get feedback from the team to management in a quick and easy way.

Introducing: Daily Pulse

old-way-new-way-4

Every member of your team can now anonymously answer any question upon clock-out. Would you want to know what your workforce thinks of the following:

Whom does your team thinks best lives a core value?
Which co-worker do they find the most helpful?
Who should be the teammate of the month?

PayrollHero is your platform for market measurement of your important KPI’s.

Responses from Daily Pulse are one more point of data for management to make better informed decisions with.

We recommend decisions be made with evaluation of the ever growing data set PayrollHero provides and the qualitative recommendations of their leadership.

Daily Pulse does not attribute whom cast the vote publicly; this in combination with our evolving algorithms should thwart spoiled votes.
