Employment Hero Product Report: December Edition

At Employment Hero, we’re always innovating – and our product owners are the perfect example of that ethos. They’re always busy bees behind the scenes, finding new ways to make people management even easier and continuing to improve our existing features. Here’s a list of the latest product updates they’ve released this month in our product report.


New: Employee File Search

Admins can now easily find specific employee details using our new search function in the employee file. Whether it’s their super fund details, BSB or home address, you can now search for specific data fields without clicking through their file. The search field can be found on the top of each employees file.

Enhancement: Preferred Names

Employees have been able to provide a preferred name for a while now, but this will now be reflected in the product. All announcements, Shout Outs, Recognitions and goals will show their preferred name, which will also be displayed in the staff directory.

Enhancement: Updated eTFN Module

Our electronic tax file declarations (or eTFN for short!) module has been updated. Previously, admins were only able to lodge eTFNs on behalf of Australian citizens and had to lodge working holiday makers directly with the ATO. No more! Admins can now lodge working holiday makers without leaving EmploymentHero.

Enhancement: Improved Leave Management Visibility

We’ve made our leave management feature more transparent for admins and direct managers. Previously, when leave requests were declined, there was no way for other managers or admins to see why. Now, declined leave requests will show in the calendar along with an explanation of why the leave was declined.
