How do I quickly add an employee to the HR platform?

HR Best Practice

Using the 'Quick Add' feature will not take the employee through the onboarding process. It is a simple way to add your first users or 'early adopters' to the platform. When you need to add new employees to your HR platform, we recommend using the Employee Onboarding feature.

You can use the Quick Add Employee feature to add a new user to your HR platform without them having to go through the onboarding process when they first login.


The Quick Add Employee feature will by-pass the employee self service (ESS). The ESS generates an email containing an invitation to join the Employment Hero platform. This invitation will then take your employee through setting up their details such as personal information, bank and superannuation information.
