Office romances can be a real headache for HR. Even with an official policy on personal relationships at work, these cases are rarely black and white. It’s often left to HR to decide what action, if any, needs to be taken – not an easy job by any means – especially if relationships turn sour.
Thankfully, there’s one office love affair that every HR person can get on board with: the relationship between a practitioner and their HR software system. Employee romances may cause you grief, but an HR system designed to support you will make your job all the rosier!
With it being Valentine’s Day, we’ve highlighted five Cezanne HR features we think you’ll fall in love with.
Automatic Calculations of Holiday Entitlement
Organising employee absences and holiday is a pain if done manually, not to mention frustratingly time consuming, especially if it’s up to you to figure out exactly how much paid time off each of your employees are due. Any HR system worth its salt should be able to cope with the most complicated calculations, so that you don’t have to. Cezanne HR for instance, lets you define your own rules – i.e. when entitlements should be calculated from, how they are accrued, what carry-over is allowed, or whether you award extra days based on seniority. The system then does the maths, updating employee records in real time based on their working time patterns.

Configurable Form Builder
Paper forms and manual approval processes are the bane of every HR team. You can’t not use them, but you don’t want to get buried in the paperwork either. Whether it’s travel loan requests, back-to-work interviews, or anything else you can think of, the Cezanne HR form builder has got it covered. You’ll be able to create sophisticated, digital forms and route them through your approval processes – all without leaving the security of your HR system. It’s decluttering with a difference.

Personalised Document Generation
All HR professionals can benefit from having a simple way to create, track and manage personalised documents – from pay awards to policies. Being able to set up and save unlimited templates means you can generate and distribute all the documents you need directly from your Cezanne HR system at the click at a mouse. They’ll be stored against the employee record, so they – and you – always know where to find them.
So, if your company does have a written policy about relationships at work, you can be sure that everyone knows what’s expected of them.
Easy to set up Onboarding Portals
The welcome portal in Cezanne HR’s Onboarding and Lifecycle module is a fantastic way of engaging with new employees from the moment they’re hired. Acting as an information hub, your personalised portal helps new employees find their feet quickly, and can contain anything from introductory videos to essential information they need to know on day one – it’s your call. The portal helps build a relationship between the new hire and the company before they even start, so they’re more likely to stick around and you’re less likely to have a messy break up on your hands.
Simplified Performance Reviews
With any couple, honesty, transparency and an open dialogue is key, and the relationship between an employee and their company is no different. Performance reviews not only provide an opportunity for employees to receive feedback and to be given direction, but also for HR and the business as a whole to develop better informed succession planning, training plans and workforce development strategies.
The Cezanne HR Performance module has been built with this in mind; to make processes more transparent, consistent and streamlined for everyone involved, whilst providing a central place where key information from reviews can be extracted and used by HR to inform key decisions. You can read in more detail about how an HR system can revolutionise your approach to Performance in this data sheet.
