Viewpoint Adds HR to Spectrum

Sept. 28, 2020

Viewpoint has integrated its HR Management function into Spectrum. The company says the move gives human resources professionals and employees a “broader web-based onboarding platform and self-service capabilities designed to boost talent acquisition and scale and automate many HR processes.”

The integration provides contactless onboarding, enabling companies to bring employees on remotely and electronically, keeping themselves and employees safer during the coronavirus pandemic while also digitizing their operations. HR staff can also easily share policy updates, safety information or request a digital signature remotely, leading to a much safer and more efficient culture for everyone.

For employers, the biggest benefits provided by HR Management are the flexibility to customize onboarding forms, easily assign onboarding tasks to unique jobs in the office or field, and digitally capture required forms like I-9 compliance, state withholding and more. HR Management also directly integrates with Spectrum’s payroll and HR functions, creating a unified, digitized system of record that’s easy to use and helps streamline the workflow for HR staff.

By centrally managing everything in one place, HR Management in Spectrum can save HR teams countless hours handling processes for each new or existing worker. This is particularly helpful given that many construction companies have hundreds to thousands of workers within its HR systems, each of whom has a myriad of daily, weekly or monthly activities that an HR team must constantly track and manage. HR Management in Spectrum automates many of these processes with an easy-to-use solution that greatly reduces the workload of already-strapped construction HR staff. 

“Having Viewpoint HR Management available to us as Spectrum users is huge,” said Dhara Thakkar, HR generalist with K-Five Construction Co., which helped beta test the solution’s integration with Spectrum. “We had a largely paper-based onboarding process prior to this, and it was difficult to manage among all of the different hiring managers. Now, having a customizable digital system in place makes the onboarding process as easy as it gets. I can see us cutting the time we spend on our onboarding by 50 percent.”

Viewpoint HR Management makes processes easier for employees as well, according to the company. With HR Management in Spectrum, job candidates can now easily apply to jobs online or via their mobile devices and applications are automatically tracked and routed to hiring managers, ensuring that no candidate is inadvertently lost in the shuffle. Once hired, new workers can access and sign paperwork, read important documentation and much more—all from the same platform they used to apply.
