How to add a new employee to BerniePortal:
Navigate to the “Employees” tab in the top black navigation menu.
Click the “Add” button in the top right corner.
Select “Onboard/New Hire.”
If the employee has an email address you’d like associated with the account, select “Yes.” If not, select “No.”
If adding an email, the employee will receive an email at that address containing login instructions.
If no email is added, a PDF with instructions will generate and download after completing the required information. This should be provided to the employee so they can set up their BerniePortal account.
Enter the employee’s first and last name.
If the employee has a manager, enter the manager’s name in the “Manager” field, and select the name from the dropdown when it appears.
NOTE: If the manager does not have an employee account in BerniePortal, they cannot be assigned as a manager.
Enter the employee’s job title.
Enter the employee’s hire date by clicking the calendar icon and selecting the date.
