There are two available methods to adding your employees into the HReasily system:


  1. Add Individual Employee

  2. Bulk Upload Employee List (Recommended)

If you've got only a handful of employees to input into the system, you may opt to add them individually. Otherwise, it is highly advised for you to utilise HReasily's bulk upload function.


Nevertheless, we'll be guiding you through both methods.
