Key Takeaways

Playroll’s timeframe customisation feature, offers unmatched flexibility for onboarding. You can specify employment terms in months, weeks, or days, making it easy to align contracts with your company’s policies and local regulations. This enhancement focuses on user customization and user-friendliness, streamlining the onboarding process and benefiting both admin users and new hires.

We understand that it can be tough when systems force you into a one-size-fits all approach for incorporating and onboarding new employees. Each company is distinct, with its own operational requirements and processes, making a one-size-fits-all strategy problematic for businesses. That’s why we’ve incorporated a timeframe customisation feature within our platform. Now, when completing the “Add Employee” form, you have the option to select between different timeframe options including months, weeks, or days, when defining your new employees mandatory or optional entitlements such as annual leave, notice periods, sick leave and probation. This feature has been carefully crafted to offer you enhanced flexibility and personalisation, facilitating a smoother and more customised employee onboarding process.

Taking Time Customisation to the Next Level

We designed the timeframe customisation feature with two objectives in mind: personalisation and transparency. We recognise that each organisation is distinct, and a single solution doesn’t cater to all. By giving you the option to select between months, weeks, or days when specifying employment terms and entitlements, we empower you with the ability to tailor employee contracts in a user-friendly way that minimises confusion and errors. 

No more manually converting weeks to days or vice-versa – our system adapts to your needs seamlessly. This feature offers a comprehensive approach to documenting employee compensation and legal details, ensuring that your employment contracts align with business policies and adhere to local laws.

Designed specifically to meet the needs of users that add employees to the Playroll Platform, customised time frames simplify the task of employee onboarding and instead of rigid systems that push you towards a standardised approach, you gain flexibility, while staying compliant with local regulations and employment laws.

💡Picture this: you’re running an international company with a branch in the United Kingdom. You’ve hired a new team member, and your company’s global leave policy works in weeks, not days. Now, with this feature, you can effortlessly sync the employment contract by entering “3 weeks” for annual leave instead of “15 days.” This flexibility ensures that your company policies align with territorial stipulations without the need for manual calculations.

How it Works

Adding an employee to your team has never been easier. This feature comes into play during the second step of adding an employee to the Playroll platform. Instead of being confined to territory defaults which may be in days or weeks – you can now choose to express them in weeks or even months to align with company policies.
