Engaging with employees is a key component within a HR system. Marketing permissions allows selected users to post announcements to employees who are using the system, ensuring that all users are up to date and on the same page as one another.
Additionally, we've added a new page called "Branding settings" which will allow those with Marketing permissions to directly make changes to the look and feel of the company colors and logo, without the need to access the system with an HR colleague. These fields were previously only accessible in the Company Settings and accessible only to HR colleagues.

Make sure the box entitled ‘Marketing permissions’ is ticked and the employee has access to marketing features.
Once enabled, the employee will have access to another icon on the left-hand menu of their self-service account, labelled 'Marketing', shown as:
From here, those with Marketing permissions can now post Announcements, Branding settings and Pages in the same way as an Administrator or HR user would.
