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


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 ‌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.
