HR Acuity | October 28, 2021
HR Acuity, the only technology platform purpose-built for employee relations and investigations management, today announced the launch of managER, a new technology product designed for people leaders that simplifies managing employee issues. managER solves decades-old problems of inconsistent processes, inadequate documentation and ineffective resolutions related to employee issues such as performance problems or policy violations.
"Frontline people leaders are the most direct connection between a company's brand and their employees,Until now, managers lacked the tools and guidance needed to help them handle everyday employee issues properly. managER provides the framework and technology needed to document employee issues quickly, consistently and fairly – all while building manager confidence. This results in enterprises retaining employees and creating safer workplaces."
-Deb Muller, CEO and founder of HR Acuity.
Muller further explained, "As much as technology has improved how people leaders participate in other areas of HR (coaching, performance reviews and onboarding), the opportunity for technology to strengthen the efficiency and effectiveness of employee relations at the manager level remains largely untapped. In addition to empowering people leaders, enlarging the scope of data captured related to employee issues delivers a powerful set of predictive insights to identify areas of concern, policy or training opportunities, potential inequities or even bias within organizations."
HR Acuity conducted a recent survey on management practices and found that just 2% of employee relations professionals were "very confident" that their managers could address and document employee relations issues effectively. The survey also found that managers lack access to historical data and need better tools to handle concerns in a uniform and compliant manner. managER closes that gap by giving people leaders the technology they need to manage employee matters in real time.
Key managER features include:
Step-by-step guidance on handling common workplace issues, including assistance in selecting the appropriate issue and built-in guidance to help prepare formal letters
Easily accessible visibility into past employee issues and actions taken to help determine next steps
Seamless workflows to document early warnings or deliver formal notices
Simple, built-in review and approval process for people leaders to get assistance or approvals from HR
Data from the people-leader level compiled into one centralized dashboard, allowing employee relations teams to proactively spot trends and identify patterns
By enabling people leaders to handle everyday employee issues with more confidence, managER gives HR and employee relations teams more time to focus on broader strategic initiatives and improve consistency and fairness across the organization. Better processes and earlier engagement also promote trust between employees and their leaders.
"For us, managER was not a hard sell,We believe in empowering our people leaders to manage their employees, but we understand that they need the help and guidance that managER provides to them. The product also facilitates communication between employee relations and people leaders. We're confident that managER will change our culture, driving more accountability for managers."
-Paula Ramirez, VP of HR Shared Services at Boeing Employee Credit Union
It's time to upgrade how people leaders handle employee issues on the front lines. Find out more about how managER, powered by HR Acuity, can help at www.hracuity.com/manager.

The solution provides a safe way to get employees back to work, keep them mindful of social distancing and alert them to possible risks of exposure from symptomatic, positive tested and exposed employees. CompanyTRAK helps HR and internal health professionals manage exposure to COVID within their company and to isolate all exposed individuals.
CompanyTRAKTM follows employee interaction with other employees from the time they enter the building using Geofencing technology.
We first announced our public solution, ViralTRAK in April, where I was able to give an in-depth overview of the public app in a featured segment on WXYZ Channel 7, an ABC local affiliate. If any of the members test positive, they simply press a button in the app. All the app members who have been in the CDC recommended safety distance in the past 14-days of that member who tested positive would be notified of possible exposure.
- Varchasvi Shankar, President & CEO of CompanyTRAK
CompanyTRAK uses a proprietary, advanced location services model plus technology add-ons without collecting any personal information. The solution identifies which employees have been within the CDC recommended parameters of the self-reported symptomatic or positive tested employees over a 14-day period. It identifies primary and secondary exposure, which is unique to CompanyTRAK. The Admin Portal helps company HR and other authorized personnel to manage employees with daily PPE and temperature checks that employees need to follow.

The solution went from ideation to fully functional in just a few weeks, utilizing our existing technology framework and platform solutions. We are working to develop additional use cases to help companies get back to work and keep their employees safe.
Using CompanyTRAK helps employees feel safe and maintains the current social distancing rules. We are working on ways to bring this to other industries including hospitals and schools. We are learning more about increasing government requirements and company needs as we continue with conversations about our solution.
- Ray Drzala, Marketing Director
CompanyTRAK is currently being tested at multiple sites and available on Apple and Android Enterprise App Stores for corporations. "This solution can help us get back a little closer to normal and aid significantly in business continuity to identify exposed employees within companies," said Varchasvi Shankar, President & CEO.
