A system that works as good as it looks.

Selima HR provides everything needed to run your HR function effectively. Manager and employee self-service helps devolve control to the people that are closest to the situation. Easy to use powerful mobile capabilities mean Selima HR can be used anywhere anytime.
Employee Records

Selima HR enables an extensive employee profile to be built, ensuring all information is kept in one place. Personal and salary details, including documents and photographs are available to managers and HR. Any ad-hoc or additional documents can be easily uploaded with just the click of a button.

Multiple roles are fully supported and these “employments” can hold individual job descriptions, competencies and standardise job tittles across the business. A skills matrix against each employment enables employees to be assessed and a skills “gap” across the organisation to be built.

Selima HR is ideal for even the most complex of organisations.

Absence Management

Leave behind paper holiday requests and poor sickness record keeping. All leave and sickness instances are stored and accessible in a couple of clicks. Employees can easily request annual leave electronically; permissions can be easily and instantly amended depending on who the organisation wishes to authorise holidays. Built in Bradford Factor and other sickness triggers keep track of sickness with each employee record featuring a score.

Payroll Integration

When used in conjunction with the Selima payroll managed service Selima HR gives a complete end-to-end HR and payroll solution. Optionally, Selima Payroll can be implemented in-house for those organisations that prefer not to outsource. Tight integration ensures everybody gets paid correctly and on time, all of the time.


Dashboard Widgets give an instant snapshot of the health of the organisation. Quick reports provide managers and HR with a pre-set selection of common reports. Selima HR features a powerful custom report builder, enabling Selima HR to be truly tailored to individual organisations.

Grievance and Disciplinary

Workflow driven grievance and disciplinary management guides managers through the company policies. Records ofall meetings are stored against the employee and reminders and triggers can be set for key events.

Time & Attendance

Timesheets fed straight to payroll ensure salaries are correct and in accordance with absence or leave. Ad-hoc payment adjustments can be managed via timesheets and sent directly to payroll. Advanced clocking in methods are available– wall mounted tablets enable employees to clock in, display live information and updates and relay messag¬es to employees. PIN entry, card readers and biometric devices are supported.


Manager permissions can be tailored so they are able to view their direct reports, teams and administer a range of HR processes. Giving managers more control over their own teams reduces the need to contact HR.

Line managers are guided by configurable workflows for disciplinary actions, appraisal and reviews. Work¬flows can be tailored to comply with the businesses procedures and policies. Learning & Development is supported with the ability to manage training courses, training plans and employee progression. Everything is recorded against an employee’s profile giving complete visibility.

Organisational Structure

Organisational charts give a complete and up to date picture of the business. Customisable and personalised depending on the type of business, charts are built dynamically in the background as HR functions are performed. Drill-down facilities enable individual employee records to be viewed or modified from within the Organisation Charts.

Employee Self-Service

Employees can view their payslips, request leave and submit expense and training requests. A status is visible on all types of requests so employees can see if a request has been approved or not. When HR is used in conjunction with Selima Staff Scheduling, employees are also able to see their rota.

Employees also have access to a calendar via self-service in which they can view upcoming events or important dates. All this is available anywhere and anytime – on a desktop or on employees’ tablet or smartphone.

The Complete HR Solution

Selima HR is a comprehensive system giving you everything you need to run your HR department. Scalable to the size of your business – HR will grow with you. Additional modules can be added as required, Selima also provides payroll, recruitment, expenses and staff scheduling solutions. Easy to install and set up, minimal training is required as HR is simple to use and has a familiar feel.

“Selima have provided a truly first-class service – highly efficient and very friendly.

The big difference between Selima and other systems is how user friendly it is. I’ve worked in HR for 25 years and this is far and away the best software I have come across.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I use HR on my own servers or over the internet?

HR was designed to use over the internet, this gives you more freedom and will get you up and running almost immediately, but of course if you wish to host on your own servers, you can do so.

Will it take a long time to set up and install?

Not at all! A typical set up can be completed in less than a week. As HR is web based, everything can be set up remotely, we can import your data for you or you can upload it yourself.

It sounds expensive…

HR is priced per employee and you only pay for additional modules if you require them. We won’t sell you software you don’t need! Using HR web based also saves on implementation costs.

Is my data safe when I use HR online?

At Selima we take data security very seriously, all of our software modules comply with stringent security measures.
