Complete employee profile accurately

This article is for Owners and admins who use Humanised


Both manual employee profile creation and bulk upload options of the HR system only capture mandatory data initially. Complete the profile to ensure a smooth onboarding process and save time on HR tasks down the road!

Step 1: Open the employee’s profile

Step 2: Update information in each section properly

While not mandatory, including the following information strengthens your employee profiles. 

Personal Details:

Employment Details:

Pay Details:

Earnings and deductions: You can add and edit pay items here and the data will be saved in the system so you can use these for future payruns.

Bank Details:

Employees getting paid in cash:

Toggle “Employee Paid in Cash” to “On” if the employee receives cash payments.

If salary is being credited to bank account: 

  • This is the main account where the employee’s salary will be deposited.
  • Fill in the necessary details, which typically include: Bank Name, Account Number, Account Name, Branch Number.

Adding Secondary Bank Account (Optional):

  • If the employee’s salary needs to be split and deposited into another account, you can add a secondary account by clicking “Add a Secondary Account.”
  • Fill in the details for the secondary account just like you did for the primary one.
  • Then update the amount that should be credited to the primary account which is under “Split Salary”.
  • Update the email address where the employee’s payslip will be sent under “Email address for payslip send off”. It’s important to use the email address the employee prefers for receiving their payslip. Most people choose their personal email address for this, as opposed to their work email.

You can add notes related to employees here and set reminders as well.  

Eg: next performance review is on 31st May 2024

System login access: 

  • Turn on “Allow System Login” if you want the employee to access the system. This might be useful for employees who need to manage their own payroll information or timesheets.
  • Leave it off if the employee doesn’t need to log in.

Access role: 

  • Choose the employee’s access level from the “Access Role” menu. This determines what information they can see and edit within the system. 

System login mail: 

  • Update this with the email address the employee will use to log in. The system will send a password reset email to this address. 

Include in payroll:  

This section lets you control whether the employee is included in upcoming payroll processing. 

  • Turn on “Payrun” if the employee needs to be shown during the next payrun.
  • Leave it off if the employee doesn’t need to be included in the upcoming payroll (for example, a new hire who hasn’t started working yet)
