Updated in March- 2024 |Β Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

An employee directory is an important tool for managing and organizing employee data in a company. It is a feature that provides a centralized location to store and manage employee information. It is typically a secure, web-based platform where employers can access employee contact details, job titles, departments, and other relevant information.

The Employee Directory page in the greytHR Admin portal provides you with a list of all current and past employees, the option to add details of an employee, and generate a report.
You can further customize the list of employees as per your requirements using the Category, Employment Status, and Employee Filter dropdown filters.

To view the Employee Directory page, click Employee > Main > Employee Directory.

You can perform the following actions on the Employee Directory page:

  1. Add details of a new employee.
