Managing HR

This section is for Managers or Administrators, who handle HR in Wurk, such as employee pay and personal information and paperwork, job titles, departments or cost centers, performance, hiring and termination, company announcements and documents, and company benefits

If you're a regular Employee, this section is not for you. Instead, see Using Work.

This section guides you in managing HR. Tasks in this section require special permissions and access only granted to these types of users and show functionality not available to general employees.

HR management is closely related to TLM and Payroll. Employee HR information, for example, is used to determine tax deductions, pay calculations, which departments or cost centers an employee can charge hours to, and how they are paid. To learn more about these areas of Wurk, see Related Topics.

Making the Most of Wurk: Paperless Paydays (Using Direct Deposit)

We recommend "paperless paydays" as a best practice: to achieve paperless paydays, you should encourage your employees to opt for Direct Deposit. This provides the following advantages over printed, mailed checks:

Advantages of Direct Deposit for EmployersAdvantages of Direct Deposit for Employees
Cost savingsFastest method for depositing funds into your account
Reduced risk of check fraud and lost or stolen checksReduces time required for checks to clear
Greater control over payroll and payroll expensesReduces chances of lost or stolen checks
Timely payment of paychecks, even when employees are awayNo extra time spent visiting banks or ATMs to deposit checks
Reduced bookkeeping because of immediate payments into employee accounts (no delays in cashing)Payments can be divided automatically among designated employee accounts
Online transaction reports are available immediatelyTypically no cost for direct deposit; many banks even offer free checking if you use direct deposit

If you do not see options for Direct Deposit, your Administrator may need to contact Wurk Support ( to have it enabled.
