Core allows you to create a list of HR items such as employee journal types and journal status. These lists are then used to create and track employee journals. The Journal feature of Core HR is like an employee diary in which HR managers can record information about any employee-related activities and credentials. Journal entries are intended to assist the supervisors to monitor the behavior of employees at reasonable intervals and keep track of their achievements.
You can create and maintain a list of employee attributes or items via journal types. Some common journal types are achievement, demotion, complaint, discipline, suspension, promotion, dress code, and so on. You can create any number of journal types and then use them while creating employee journal entries. Click to watch a video on creating employee journals in Core.
