Setting up my Employment Hero profile | Employee HR Guide

Our HR platform simplifies the process of creating your Employent Hero profile by breaking it down into smaller, manageable tasks. Once you complete your profile, you can then use Employment Hero to undertake a wide range of tasks, for example, submitting timesheets and leave, complete a one-on-one and view your organisation's company values.

There are four potential steps you will need to complete when joining the Employment Hero HR platform, and you will complete these actions through the HR platform. The steps are:

Your invitation link to join the HR platform can expire. If this has happened to you, your manager can send a new invitation link through to you. If your manager is unsure of how to do this, forward them on the following article.

  2. In the password sentence, click the Here button.
  3. Enter your password into the Password field.

Next you will see your employment contract, which you need to review, acknowledge and sign. You can always access your contract once you finish onboarding from the My Documents feature. The steps on how to sign your contract are:

So you have now onboarded onto the HR platform, and you are now wondering what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • Request leave | HR Web Platform This article describes how to submit a leave request, such as annual leave or sick leave, and any other leave types that you are entitled to take.
  • Giving a shout out | HR Web Platform This feature allows you to shout-out a co-worker on the company feed for helping you out with your role or a project.
