It is possible to give your employees access to Visma HR through the “Leader- employee module”, so they can record their own absence and variable salary registrations. Ex. Mileage, over time, absence and subsistence allowances.
Among other things, it is also possible to give the employees access to, their own personal data, employment record and vacation and absence balances. The module is process supported which means that the leaders automatically will be able to view salary- and absence recordings that are ready for approval. As soon as the leader approves the recordings they will be transferred to the payroll system (Visma Løn)
There will be access to the pages in Visma HR for the employee, leader and HR/Administrator in the organisation. This guide is mainly aimed at the administrator of the company and contains a description of the individual menu items and the access for these.
When you record wage types and absence the following icons will be used for editing, deleting, updating and regret recording.
