What is Employee Relationship Management Software?

Employee Relationship Management (ERM) software is designed to help organizations track and manage employee relations cases, facilitate collaboration between employees and different areas of the organization, improve transparency between managers and other employees, and maintain regulatory compliance.

ERM software allows organizations to improve the employee experience by…

  • Determining employee needs through surveys, monthly check-ins, one-on-one conversations, or comprehensive evaluation meetings
  • Facilitating open and honest communication between employees, managers, and company executives to establish stronger relationships
  • Measuring the efficiency and effectiveness of communication efforts to ensure goals are met and improvements are made where necessary
  • Considering work-life balance when creating employee schedules, offering feedback for employees, or outlining flexible staffing policies
  • Completing performance reviews to ensure deadlines are met and employees are working as productively as possible
  • Improve process efficiency through seamless integrations between ERM software and your existing Human Resource (HR) systems

What is Workbrain Software?

Workbrain operates on your organization’s intranet, on wireless mobile devices, and through web-enabled kiosks, and the solution is designed to help companies integrate applications, access important data whenever and wherever it’s needed, and facilitate a more comprehensive end-to-end experience for users.

The Workbrain platform automates core business processes, including labor forecasting, timekeeping, and employee scheduling, provides a more comprehensive user experience through industry-specific solutions, and offers employee self service tools to improve overall engagement.

Workbrain offers a few main integrated applications to improve functionality and interoperability across business units, including…

Workbrain Analytics

Employers can use the Workbrain Analytics application to plan employee schedules, analyze employee and system productivity, monitor trends across the industry, and facilitate better performance and attendance management across the board.

Workbrain Workforce Management

The Workforce Management application allows users to manage interactions with other users and build strong, personalized relationships that help boost productivity, engagement, and overall satisfaction for employees. And, based on interactions with other users, employees can understand their own preferences and build benefit plans tailored to meet each user’s needs.

Workbrain Community

Users can leverage the Workbrain Community application to facilitate collaboration between employees and business units by participating in employee auctions, view and post messages on employee bulletin boards, and request cash advances for specific projects or services.

Workforce Initiative

The Workforce Initiative application gives employees the functionality needed to manage their schedule, request time-off for vacation, and bid for jobs in a secure, unified interface.
