HOME blog deputy so much more than a scheduling app

At Deputy, we’ve been helping businesses run thriving teams and hyper-efficient, profitable businesses for more than 20 years.

We started our journey helping businesses transform how they manage employee schedules and timesheets, but over the years our purpose has evolved. With the ongoing support and feedback of our customers, we realized that we can help businesses in so many more ways.

Last year, we launched Deputy HR in Europe and Australia, a brand new suite of features that helps businesses hire and retain the best talent, onboard employees without the usual mountain of paperwork, and manage all their key HR documents in one smart digital hub.

We were absolutely blown away by the overwhelmingly positive response to Deputy HR. And today, we’re excited to announce the launch of this new product suite for businesses across the U.S.

This new collection of tools goes hand in hand with Deputy’s scheduling and time tracking features, giving you and your team a seamless, world-class experience from hiring and onboarding to scheduling and accurate timesheets.

Let’s take a look at how Deputy can support both managers and employees at every step of their journey.

1. Hire the perfect team member, fast

With Deputy Hire, we help you get open roles in front of the right candidates faster, so you can watch the applications roll in. Need help writing the job ad? Our smart AI has you covered. Build an eye-catching careers page and create job postings in minutes. Along the way, we help you juggle a range of recruitment tasks to speed up the hiring process, so the perfect candidate doesn’t slip through your fingers.

2. Make an amazing first impression with smooth onboarding

We all know the importance of making a great first impression, and with Deputy New Hire Onboarding, we’ve got you covered. We’ve simplified all the manual processes like chasing paperwork and signatures so you can onboard your new team member today and schedule them for tomorrow. After all, the sooner they’re making a difference to the lives of your customers, the better it is for the bottom line. And you can rest easy knowing that team member details are saved in one place.

3. Manage HR admin like a pro, in one place

Our HR Document Management feature brings all your team’s key details, documents, and licenses together in one smart hub. So you can cut down on the paperwork in your life — and always know where to find that one document you’re looking for. It also automatically reminds your team to keep important licenses up to date, simplifying compliance and helping your business run smoothly.

4. Keep morale high and retain the best talent 

There’s nothing more empowering for an employee than feeling heard. Our new and improved Employee Engagement feature, Shift Pulse+, gives team members a way to provide constructive feedback about their shift so managers can ensure your workplace is a great place to be. Shift Pulse+ gives you the power to set up custom questions and survey timing, dive into how specific teams are feeling, and track how morale is trending over time from one simple dashboard.
