The Human Resources Series provides the tools you need to identify top
candidates, track them through the interviewing process and stay in touch
with them until the position has been successfully filled. The Human Resources
Series' Applicant component streamlines and standardizes the hiring process,
helping to ensure every applicant is treated equitably and every candidate
is interviewed consistently. Individual applicants can be associated with
an unlimited number of job requisitions and unlimited work history, educational
information, skills - even interview notes - can be maintained for each
applicant. Resumes can be scanned, then attached to applicants' records,
eliminating the need to maintain this information in paper form while
ensuring accessibility. Powerful query functionality makes it easy for

options for employees. Use this component to enroll employees in plans,
to set up cash accounts for medical and child care expenses, and to track
a multitude of accrual options, such as seniority-based leave. You also
can use the Benefit/Deduction component to track employees' usage of FMLA
leave and the costs associated with it, and you can create letters for
exiting employees informing them of their rights under COBRA, while maintaining
a record of the employees who have been notified as required.
The Human Resources Series' Employee component tracks a broad range of
information, far beyond basic demographic data. You can track attendance
using time codes that also can be used to generate employee paychecks,
define and track disciplinary plans and individuals' merits and demerits,

skills to open positions. Not only does this make it easier to find the
right candidate for the right position, Skills Query can also help you

with salary and wage adjustments. By calculating the adjusted compensation
for a group of employees, you'll be able to quickly compare the change
to current compensation, as well as to other groups in the company.
