How can Sage HR help me manage my people remotely? 

Keeping your workforce connected and engaged is key as your business adapts to new tomorrows. Sage HR helps you remotely track, manage and engage your employees as easily as you do in the office. Here’s what’s in it for you all:

Core HR

  • Achieve full visibility of your remote workforce, with an online employee database that’s your single source of truth
  • Manage and organise your workforce remotely with tools such as communications, reporting, asset management, org charts, and more
  • Give your employees instant and remote self-service access to everything they need, such as payslips, company policies, updates, absence requests, schedules, and more

Leave management

  • Enable your people to request leave, check holiday balance and see who’s away, any time, anywhere
  • Approve time off requests directly from Sage HR mobile app, email, or even Slack
  • Forget about spreadsheets, forms and endless emails! Track schedules, holidays and sick leave - including COVID-19-related illness - simply and collaboratively online

Performance management

  • Share goals and priorities to unite team efforts while you can’t be in the office. Align with your company vision, and keep track of progress
  • Ensure a well-rounded, holistic view of each individual’s performance with 360 feedback from peers, managers and subordinates, gathered transparently throughout the year
  • Give your people a voice to help drive your business forward. Surveys can be set to anonymous and completed discreetly via mobile app


  • No risking infection by multiple handling of receipts or unnecessary journeys to the office - employees submit expenses simply by photographing the receipt directly from the mobile app
  • Turn receipts into expense entries automatically, then group them together and submit an online expense report with a single click
  • Control who has access to what, simply and securely, with specified permissions

Our customers love us

Before using Sage HR, our staff would have taken a picture, emailed it to me, and I’d then have to save it in a file for processing later that month, or sifted back through my emails.

A special added value is also Sage HR’s mobile iOS and Android smartphone applications that many competitors do not offer.

I can see exactly which staff are in each day, and if anyone phones in sick I can simply log their absence in Sage HR and it updates their record.
