Once our sales team has completed your registration, you will receive login credentials via email. You will now be able to use these credentials to login to http://www.pmamhcm.com.

On successful login, the first screen presents a consolidated dashboard of training assigned, training requests pending approval and notifications.

Below is the step by step guide on getting started with PMAM HCM.

The first step is to create all your setup files.

  • Click on the Setup button.
  • Create a list of Skills that are required in your organization – considering the organization’s goals and objectives.
  • Create a list of Job Titles that are held by the employees in your organization. Start by listing those Job Titles for which you plan to start training.
  • Assign (one or more) skills to each Job Title.
  • Create a list of the objectives that you wish to achieve through training.
  • Create a list of the different types of training that you will be using to improve the skills of the employees.
  • Create a signature. This will be used for all your communication within the PMAM HCM application.

Your next step as an Administrator is to create a listing of the training that you would eventually like to assign to your employees.

  • Upload documents pertaining to the training so that the employees can access those easily.
  • Link the company objective(s) to each training.
  • Once you add all the training that are desirable or useful for the employees, you need to create and add the employee feedback forms. These are survey forms which will help you in assessing the training and their effectiveness. This is an optional but critical step to help you evaluate and modify your training programs for maximum benefit. You can also modify an existing feedback form.

Next, Add all your employees along with a username and password with which they can log into PMAM HCM.

Assign skills to each employee along with the actual rating of their skills (against the desired ratings). The report of all the employees along with their actual skill ratings rated against the desired skill ratings of the organization will give you a gap analysis. Based on the gap analysis, you can assign relevant training to the employees.

You can then go back to the Training module and assign training or a position (which is associated with multiple training) to each employee and also set Start and End dates to the training.

Notifications for training assigned to employees and notifications for general training are available on the employee dashboard when he first logs into the PMAM HCM system using his own username and password.

The employee can monitor the progress of the training at regular intervals of time.

Once the employees complete the assigned training, they are asked to complete the feedback form. The feedback ensures that the quality and effectiveness of the training are constantly monitored and the training are continuously evolved.

At the end of the training, if any test have been defined for those, then the employee can take the test and receive a certification. This part of the process belongs to the Omniscient application.
