Hello and welcome to XpertHR Liveflo, the revolutionary new compliance workflow tool for employers of all sizes.
Whether you are a small business or a large corporation, an HR professional or a manager or owner with HR responsibilities, Liveflo helps you handle staff issues easily and effectively in line with the law, avoiding costly mistakes and reducing the risk of employment tribunal claims, leaving you free to focus on achieving your organisation’s core objectives.
With Liveflo on your desktop, you can have confidence in managing legally regulated procedures, such as redundancies and statutory retirement, with the help of a state-of-the-art online tool, brought to you by the UK’s best and fastest-growing HR information service.
So what does Liveflo do?
It guides you step-by-step through example procedures to comply with employment law, using interactive flowcharts, like the one behind me now, that set out the steps in each process, including decision points.
And it offers legal guidance and help on each flowchart step, along with calculators and model policies, letters, forms and contract clauses that you can adapt for use in your own organisation.
Let’s take a closer look at how Liveflo can make your life easier and give you peace of mind.
First, choose your workflow. When you are logged in, the “Workflows” page will show you all the workflows to which you have access.
Let’s select the misconduct workflow.
You can now see the misconduct workflow home page behind me. On your left is the guidance panel, with text explaining when to use this workflow. On your right is the misconduct flowchart.
For a full view of the flowchart, click the “Expand chart” button. You can zoom in and out and move the chart around by holding down your mouse button and dragging. You can also print the chart.
To start the workflow, click the “Begin workflow” button which opens the first step. You can see that the chart has moved so that your current step is highlighted in both the guidance panel and the flowchart.
In the guidance panel, simply drag the scroll bar down to see all the key points, warnings, templates and further guidance associated with this step.
To view any item, click the heading and your chosen item will open conveniently in a new window, so you don’t lose your place in the workflow.
When you are happy that you have understood the guidance associated with a step, just click the button to move to the next step. You can see that both the guidance panel and the flowchart have moved on.
You can also click the answers or shapes on the flowchart to move to the next step.
Now, we all know that real life is more complicated than a flowchart, which is why Liveflo also provides guidance on events that may occur outside the standard flowchart procedure.
If you find that you are unable to proceed at a particular step, simply click the “What if…?” button for a list of events outside the flowchart procedure.
Here we are looking at a typical example, showing guidance on what to do if the employee under investigation goes off sick during the disciplinary process.
Just like regular flowchart steps, “What if…?” events include key points, model documents and additional guidance to help you deal with situations easily and efficiently.
Another flexible benefit for our users is that Liveflo doesn’t force you to click through the workflow step by step in the sequence set by our legal editors.
If you wish, you can use the flowchart as a navigation tool to get to information and guidance you need at any time. Simply click a step out of sequence to view the key points and guidance associated with that step.
To return to the set workflow sequence, just click the “Return to sequence” button. Or to start the workflow again from your new step, click the “Restart from this step” button.
Liveflo also offers a powerful search engine and the ability to save steps and “What if…?” events to return to them quickly and conveniently at another time.
So there you have it. XpertHR Liveflo: dynamic employment law workflows and interactive guidance on your desktop. It’s a revolution in HR compliance. And this next generation HR information solution is available right now to XpertHR Professional and Small Business subscribers.
