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 project represents a significant business change which will impact all areas of the University. 

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 proposed timescale for implementation is as follows:

  • Employee Self-Service will be provided to all staff (excluding casuals) in April 2018
  • Manager Self-Service will be rolled out to managers in three waves from May-July 2018

Communications directly to staff will start in the new year and will include items in local newsletters, posters, and payslip messages.  Briefing sessions specifically for back-office users of CoreHR are also planned. A more detailed timetable will be shared with departments as soon as possible.

Further information about the project, including the project governance, communication channels, and expected timescales, is available to CoreHR users via the Using HRIS project webpages, 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 last presentation at the UAS Conference.
