How do employee HR portals work?
An employee HR portal is an interface through which employees perform HR-related tasks. It is an integrated suite of tools that includes time and attendance, scheduling, payroll information, benefits enrollment, onboarding and much more.
When you are researching employee HR portals, you can read product descriptions and user reviews. You can ask other business owners. But you need to use the product yourself. Now you can experience WorkforceHUB from SwipeClock.

Redefining Human Resources in 2019
WorkforceHUB provides your employees and managers the type of web-based platform they are familiar with. In 2019, your employees already use high-functioning software. It would actually take longer to teach them how to use outdated processes.
How Does An Employee Self-Service Portal Work?
When an employee signs in, they enter the main dashboard. They can easily locate the punch in function and start their shift.
The Main Dashboard Includes:
- Clock in/out
- Time of most recent clock in/out and type
- At a glance: next pay date, download WorkforceHUB app, company directory, upcoming events
- Links to the previous three pay stubs (not a summary—the actual pay stub)
- Employee rewards: discounts, promotions
- Engagement: employee recognition wall, check-ins, anonymous suggestion box, chat
- Communication center: messages from the administrator
- Links to company documents: company or employee-specific
How Does Employee Self-Service HR Software Work?
WorkforceHUB isn’t an application you open once in a while when you need it. It is the interface through which employees perform every HR-related task. (And many non-HR-related tasks.)
Each employee starts and ends their shift in a company-branded portal. All team members see the important announcements at the same time on the main dashboard. The main dashboard eliminates the need for most emails and texts.
Employees Put First Things First
Each employee can access the stuff that’s most important to them. Managers and administrators can customize information per employee or department while maintaining consistency. The portal provides bi-directional communication, employees interact with management and each other.
Got Questions? WorkforceHUB Has Answers
Employees can immediately get answers to their questions. They start their shift ready to focus after tying up any loose ends. All employees can benefit from answers provided in response to one employee’s question.
WorkforceHUB Works For The Tech-Savvy And Everyone Else
Users don’t need technical knowledge to use WorkforceHUB ESS platform. If your employee can use a smartphone, they can use HUB.
Let’s look at the WorkforceHUB HR portal main dashboard.
Above the web clock is the navigation bar. If the user needs a function not included on the main dashboard, they can get to it in one click. We’ll get to those features later. But let’s explore the main dashboard.
After punching in, employees have an array of information at their fingertips.
If the most pressing thing on their mind is their next payday, they can find that directly to the right of the web clock.
Above the Next Pay Day is the check-in module.
HUB Messages is located below the payday notice. HUB Messages is an employee Communication Center. Managers and administrators input everything employees need to know today.
Below the Communications Center is HUB Docs and Links. In contrast to the Communications Center, the Docs and Links module allows managers to share documents individually as well as department-wide or company-wide.
