Borough Care, the largest not-for-profit provider of care for older people in Stockport, has launched My Workplace. My Workplace is a human resource and payroll system that gives Borough Care employees more control over their personal information, time and money.
My Workplace enables employees to change personal information, such as their address or emergency contact details, so it is as up-to-date as possible. People can also access their payslips and book time off work. As the system can be accessed via a mobile phone app or computer, it means staff can check information whether they are at home or at work.
My Workplace has many benefits for staff, managers and Borough Care as a whole. Staff will be able to check things like how much holiday they have taken, request time off and get their holidays approved quickly. They will also be able to complete return to work forms online after being off sick. Using the time and attendance system, included in My Workplace, managers can more easily analyse their staff costs. Digital rotas can be produced so that normal working hours, overtime and training courses are recorded accurately and paid appropriately.
Jayne Hennessey, Head of Human Resources at Borough Care, says: “We’ve introduced My Workplace as it’s important all our employees feel that they have control over their personal information and can access the data wherever they are, particularly for those people who work shifts. The system will allow us to more easily check all employee records, hold important documents on individual files, run reports on staff turnover and ensure people are paid accurately for the hours they’ve worked. My Workplace is one of a number of initiatives we are introducing to continually improve working life for our staff.”
