It’s always exciting when new employees start, but in the past, more employees have also meant more paperwork for employers.
With the release of employee Self Setup (also known as onboarding), employers can say goodbye to the paperwork associated with hiring new employees. Employee Self Setup lets employers manage the onboarding process from start to finish quickly and seamlessly.
How does it work?
Getting started with Employee Self Setup couldn’t be easier. Simply log in to your account, click on either:
- the main left menu navigation, to the 'Employee' icon and then click on "Start Employee Self Setup"; or
- from the business dashboard in the Employee section, click on “Add Employee”, then to “Start Employee Self Setup” button:
The following screen will appear for you to enter some basic employee details:
First Name: mandatory field. enter the new employee's first name.
Surname: mandatory field. enter the new employee's surname.
Email Address: mandatory field. enter the new employee's email address.
Mobile Number: optional field. enter the new employee's mobile number. Ensure the mobile number is a minimum of 10 digits, starting with '02'. Important that there are no special characters (e.g. + or ( )' entered in as it will cause havoc to the payday filing reporting.
Employee Starter Type: mandatory field. The options are 'New Starter - KiwiSaver Eligible', 'New Starter - Ineligible', 'Existing Employee - Eligible' and Existing Employee - Ineligible'
Qualifications Required: optional field.
Emergency Contact Details Required: optional field.
Once the new employee's details have been entered in, click on the “Save” button. The new employee will be sent an email with instructions on how to complete their details.
You’ll be sent an email once employees have completed their setup and from there, you’ll be able to review and complete the employee setup, ready for the next pay run!
