As companies grow, it becomes increasingly important for them to identify their employees through a unique identifier for a variety of reasons:

  • Employees may have the same name, or very similar names, making it difficult to distinguish between them in reporting. 

  • When sending data to other HR systems, companies will often use the employee # as an identifier in other systems.

  • Lastly, having a unique identifier makes it easier to combine data from multiple reports into a single report.

In the interest of streamlining and automating, we are adding the unique employee # to all Excel exports of all standard reports. We know that this small change will have a large cumulative impact, since HR will no longer need to manually add a unique identifier to meet their needs.
