Electronic timesheets

Employees can submit hourly or daily timesheets using either their mobile or desktop device (no more paper!). Approved timesheets are then pushed to your connected payroll platform, where your pre-defined rule sets will automatically calculate who’s owed what.

Leave management

Never lose another leave request or accidentally short-staff yourself again. Electronic leave requests can be submitted and approved through Employment Hero’s mobile app. Display available leave in real time, and use the leave calendar to ensure you’re never short-staffed.
