HR Self-Service

The project to implement HR Self-Service began on 1 March 2017.  The objective of this project is to give University staff the facility to view and update their personal details, view their payslip online and on mobile devices, and view internal-only vacancies.  In addition, the project will give some facilities to managers and administrators to view their employees’ details and will enable HR users (initially in HRIS Data Services and UAS) to use self-service to request updates to aspects of their employees’ records.

The functionality in scope for this project will be delivered on the existing version of the CoreHR software – v20.  Following an upgrade of the software to v24 (or latest version available at that point), a separate project will extend use of the self-service functionality further into areas such as Time and Attendance (annual leave and sickness absence), and possibly Expenses.

The project represents a significant business change which will impact all areas of the University.  We are currently in the very early stages and there will be a significant communication campaign ahead of implementation to ensure that all staff understand what HR Self-Service will mean for them and the benefits it offers.  The project is in the Analysis and Planning stage of its activity and the team are currently focussing on gathering information from departments about existing processes and learning more about the functionality available within the self-service tool.  We are working closely with the HRIS User Group and key contacts in departments and central services to understand requirements.   

Further information about the project, including the project governance, communication channels, and expected timescales, will be available to CoreHR users via the Using HRIS project webpages in the next few weeks, and monthly updates will be provided in the HRIS Bulletin.  In the meantime, if you would like a glimpse of what the self-service tool has to offer, have a look at the slides and video from our recent presentation at the UAS Conference.
