Appraisals can be lengthy forms to complete and take considerable thought and concentration.  The last thing you want to happen is losing any carefully constructed answers due to a poor internet connection or lack of battery power in your laptop.  With the new auto save option you can take your time completing your appraisal knowing that CompanyControls is regularly saving the document.

New Sickness Alert

by Lee Porter 11. April 2019 10:57

Sickness Alerts have previously been based around the employees Bradford Factor Score and Milton Mitigation (a similar scoring system to the Bradford Factor but calculated on the hours of sick rather than the Days of sick - allowing for part time variations).

We have now added an alert for a number of incidents of sick within a number of months e.g. 4 incidents in 6 months. There are two of these alerts available which will allow you to have two alert thresholds e.g. 3 in 3 months and 6 in 12 months.

The Job profile is shown on the employees People page and their My details page. 

The Job title and description can be inserted into an employees performance appraisal by using the tags #JOB_TITLE# and #JOB_PROFILE# in the Display Text of any component.

Keeping your training records right

by Lee Porter 20. May 2016 10:44

Our Training management software (part of CompanyControls.net and EW Assist) now offers the ability to have multiple training modules within a training course that can be individually completed over time before completing the master training course.  This would be useful for long term training or training that has a number of elements connected to it.  Examples of training that would benefit from this type of approach would be induction training, on the job experience training or College courses.

Not only does this offer a better view of outstanding training but it also shortens the list of training for the employee so as not to have long and confusing lists of individual elements but a clear view of training achieved.

Types of document

by Lee Porter 28. November 2014 19:33

Files of scanned or saved documents can be uploaded to support various records such as sick notes, training records, drivers' licences or contracts through your software.  On all pages we have added a few examples of the types of documents you may want to upload but you can add to these.

Firstly you should find the page where the new document would best fit e.g. apprentice aggreements on the employee's personal documents page or industry membership cards on the Work Documents page.  Then go to Admin > Files and click 'Add New' next to Bulk File headers:

The File Class corresponds to the best fit page and the File Name is the new type of document such as Medical Review Report, Accident Risk Assessment or training location map/directions.  

Click Add and the new document type will be available to upload files to.
