Spectrum Human Resources

Human Resources Screen ShotKeeping track of your employees’ certifications, training and personal data can be a difficult and time consuming task. The Human Resource (HR) application in Spectrum® Construction Software helps you securely manage and track all of your employee data. With customizable fields and security settings, alert capabilities and integration with other Spectrum applications, Spectrum HR provides centralized, easy access to your employees’ data.

Employee Management and Benefits

At every step of employment, Spectrum HR provides tools and check lists to assist you, so you always have the right information and follow the correct procedures. If your company requires a waiting period before employees are eligible for medical or retirement benefits, you can setup automatic notifications to alert you when new employees become eligible. You can also set up alerts for employees already fully onboard during open enrollment periods, rules for vacation and disability benefits, and contributions to employees’ 401K plans.

OSHA Forms and Incident Reports

You do your best to keep your employees and worksites safe, however, accidents occur. Spectrum HR makes it possible for you to create OSHA incidents using 300, 300A and 301 forms and to create incident reports. These reports can be specific to employees, days of the week, or time of day. With this information you can identify safety trends and help your managers modify work schedules and the types of work performed in order to reduce the likelihood of accidents.

Track Important Dates

From certifications to insurance cards, HR departments manage documents that require ongoing updates. Built-in tools notify you when certifications are about to expire, so employees can refresh required training. The application also notifies you of anniversary dates so you can acknowledge employee loyalty.

Comprehensive Security

Multiple layers of user-defined security within Spectrum HR protect sensitive and confidential portions of personnel records, including performance issues, dates of birth and results of drug and alcohol testing. The designated HR administrator assigns who can create, view, modify and delete employee data, giving key personnel individual security privileges to see only the records necessary to perform their roles. For example, a safety manager might have privileges to view an employee’s OSHA data but be restricted from viewing the results of a drug and alcohol test. Any activities performed within HR are recorded in the software’s Audit Log, which includes a date- and time-stamped record of the person making the change, as well as the original and updated information.


Spectrum Human Resources streamlines employee data management by securely recording and tracking the personnel information important to running your business. Integration across various applications within Spectrum, including Document Imaging, Payroll and General Ledger, provides easy access to all the information you need for effective, confidential and efficient HR management.
