Ditch Your Employee Spreadsheets with Perform's Custom Fields

You collect and store a lot of information about your employees, everything from their name and address to pay rates and training certifications. Finding all that information when you need it can be a real headache, especially if it’s stored in multiple different spreadsheets across multiple different departments. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all of that data in one place so you could update it all with one click? Perform comes with Custom Fields, a feature that allows you to record any employee information you can imagine and report on all of it.

If you’re the person in charge of managing payroll and employee information, a typical morning might look like this:

9:00 - Your company hired a new employee yesterday. You enter her name, address, title and department into your payroll system.

9:07 - The new hire will also need a name badge and a parking pass. You update the name badge spreadsheet and the parking pass spreadsheet with her information.

9:18 - She will also be issued a laptop. You email the IT department to have them update their laptop spreadsheet.

9:23 - The training manager emails you, wanting to know which recent new hires have completed their training sessions. You pull up another spreadsheet and email it over.

9:35 - Someone from HR comes down to your desk to ask for a list of employees who will be celebrating anniversaries this month, so you pull up another spreadsheet and print it out.

9:49 - You check your email and see the training manager replied, this time wanting to know how many employees have continuing education certifications, so you open yet another spreadsheet and send it to him.

You’re up to six spreadsheets already, and it’s not even 10:00 yet!

Perform’s Custom Fields allows you to keep all your employee information in one place. Using Custom Web Reporting, you can quickly pull reports on employee training, certifications and anniversaries for your colleagues’ requests with the click of a button. Custom Fields eliminates all those back-and-forth emails and saves you countless hours updating spreadsheets.

Pay Equity: What It Is And Why It’s Important

Pay Equity: What It Is And Why It’s Important

Pay equity is a method of eliminating gender and race discrimination when establishing and maintaining wages. Still today, many workers are separated into various jobs which are historically underpaid because of the gender and race of those occupying these positions. Pay equity laws have been in existence for decades, but over the past few years, states and local municipalities have begun to closely examine their laws in an effort to close the gender pay gap. Nearly all states have equal pay laws, but many were enacted some time ago and lack any emphasis on discriminatory pay practices for workers. As a result, states and cities are revising their current practices. California, New York, Maryland and Massachusetts are examples of states...
