Assign roles to employee

Updated inΒ November- 2023 |Β Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

A specific role provides an employee access to the application's specific features. By default, every employee is given the Employee role and has access to the Employee Self Service portal. You can assign additional roles such as workflow reviewer, onboarding reviewer, and employee-enforced policy role to your employees as per your requirements.Β 

The Employee Roles page in the greytHR Admin portal allows you to assign different roles to an employee. The page also displays the roles that are assigned to an employee earlier.

To view the Employee Roles page, click Employee > Setup > Employee Roles.

⚠️ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
