Custom HR Workflows

Streamline decision making with custom workflows & approval processes.

It’s time to be strategic.

Imagine how much time you could save simply by optimizing your most common HR workflows. When hours of paper-chasing are reduced to a few clicks, the opportunity to step up to the strategic plate for your organization becomes real. Instead of tracking down approvals, you can leave the busy work behind and focus on important issues like employee engagement, retention, talent development, and more. Now is HR’s time to shine. BambooHR can pave the way.

You don’t have time to go at it alone.

True HR pros know they can’t do it alone—and that delegation makes it possible. Custom workflows let you share the approval and data-entry load so you’re never stuck with a long line outside your door or a big stack of forms on your desk. When you automate and delegate your approval workflow activities, you’ll save time and gather what you need more quickly. You can even assign people to fill in their own information to speed up data entry while improving accuracy. You don’t have to go it alone anymore—it’s time to start working as a team.

Keep track of approval workflows.

Every workplace has one person with a stack of approval forms piled on their desk, delaying countless decisions. And because it’s on you to get them back on track, we make it easy to track approvals so you can see exactly where the holdup is. Requesters and admins can check the progress bar to see which workflow activities and approvals have been completed and by whom, taking the load off your shoulders once and for all.

Key decisions made faster.

Are your top employees waiting forever for management to approve raises and title changes? That’s a recipe for turnover. When important decisions are delayed too long, employees may not stick around to wait. BambooHR lets you create an organized and streamlined process for each of your most common workflows. In just a few clicks, managers and administrators can approve or deny any requests, which means more rapid decisions and greater retention.

Employee self-service empowers your people.

Nobody likes hounding employees, and employees are even less happy when they’re being hounded by HR. That’s why BambooHR includes employee self-service—to take the burden off of you and place it in the hands of your people. Employee self-service empowers employees to check and update their own information without your help. You can include managers and supervisors in the approval process so everyone stays in the loop, which means less hounding and more happy tail-wagging.

We protect your important data.

To err is human. And while forgiveness is fine, safely and accurately handling sensitive information with custom statuses and simple workflows is truly divine. BambooHR allows you to assign up to five different people to approve changes in workflow data, whether you’re updating emergency contact information or finalizing a promotion. You can even customize each person’s access level so only the right people can make edits. No need to worry about inaccuracies—we’ve got you covered.

"I’m finding more and more ways for BambooHR to support and automate processes that otherwise take up a lot of time and paper."
