Flinders University will launch a new version of the HR System and the Employee Self Service (ESS), used by employees to record hours worked and leave taken etc, later this year.
To ensure this project is successful, there has been close collaboration between Human Resources and Information Technology Services.
Why is Flinders upgrading?
Flinders chose to upgrade in order to realise several benefits, including new and improved functionality:
- A new, more contemporary look and feel to ESS with easy, intuitive navigation creating an improved experience for users as well as supervisors when viewing team information
- Improved on-line Casual Professional timesheets which are easier to use and more flexible
- Improved reporting capability
- Improved information security as users will access ESS using their Flinders Authentication Number (FAN) instead of their employee number
Implementation is planned between Friday 17 October and Sunday 19 October.
Further updates will follow in the lead-up to the system going live on Monday 20 October, with details of what is different and what remains unchanged.
How will I access the upgraded HR System and ESS?
You will need your FAN to access the upgraded ESS, so please ensure you have activated your FAN – please follow this link to find out how.
