You can create workflows that create value for a model's property. For example, you could have the workflow Create model instance workflow action create a new case record when a manager fills out a form to initiate disciplinary action. You could have two models in this scenario, one called Disciplinary requests and another called HR cases.
The manager fills out a form for the "Disciplinary requests" model with details such as the employee's name and notes. Upon submission of the form, the workflow would update the HR cases model with the details required, which could trigger an integration recipe to go and create the case in a third-party HR cases system if required.
