Global | Employee Communication | Onsite Alert Banner
In times of crisis, companies need a way to inform all their employees about the current situation or some unpredicted changes as quickly and efficiently as possible. For this reason we've created an onsite Alert banner where they can place their message at the very top of the platform for all employees to see:
It is an optional feature which can be enabled by a toggle and the button can either close the banner or link to another place:
It will appear for all employees in all locations so it is advised that clients with a global business segment the content. The best way to do this is to have a generic banner message and segment the page that the button links to. Employees will see it only once when they log in to the platform. For more information on the functions and appearance, please read the article on the onsite Alert banner.
UK | Employee Surveys | Additional Survey Template for Furlough confirmation
Face to face communication continues to be a challenge at the moment. We’ve just released a new template within the Employee Surveys Template Library, which enables you to get confirmation from each employee placed on furlough, that they have read, understood and agree to the changes, should you feel that this is an important step in the process for you. Clients can find the latest templates here:

UK | SmartPay™ | Affordability checker for National Minimum Wage
Clients are able to check and employee's affordability – without having to do additional calculations – directly in Reward Manager. As long as the data is uploaded to SmartPay™, clients can now see how much each employee has available to spend before they go below the National Minimum/Living Wage. The system takes into account salary data provided by the client and any additional gross salary deductions too when calculating affordability.
