Employee Self-Service (ESS)

Contents

1 Overview

Employee self-service (ESS) is web-based applications that provide employees with access to their personal records and payroll details. ESS features include allowing employees to change their own contact details, family members and banking information and benefits. ESS also allows administrative tasks like applying for a leave, reviewing of timesheet, inquiring about available loan programs, requesting for overtime payment, viewing of compensation history, and submitting of reimbursement slips. With the emergence of ESS, employees are able to transact with their Human Resource office without physical appearance which is considered irrelevant in some transactions. ESS may be operated on an employer's intranet or via a web service. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Employee_self-service


Every user account in bxp is unique. Every action made in bxp is recorded against this unique account and is auditable.


Security details and permissions are always associated with this unique account.


It is also possible to store Human Resources details with an account.


The bxp platform provides a centralised system to view details, update details and also link off to other HR and employee based services facilitated not only on the bxp system but in other platforms as well.


2 Employee Life Cycle

The general stages of the employee life cycle are:

  • Hire : The process of finding, offering and retaining the services of an employee, including onboarding.
  • Require : The legal documents and employment (employee and employer) requirements of the jurisdiction.
  • Inspire : Helping to develop the staff and ensure they meet the required targets
  • Admire : For rewarding and acknowledging the successes of the employee
  • Retire : As the employee moves from employ

3 Accessing ESS

Every account in bxp can access their "My Details" through the "I Want To" bar. The_I_Want_To_bar


"My Details" layout changes depending on the HR configuration configured by your business through the HR module. 023.png


If you're building it into a KeyStat or other button / menu solution the url will be https://ww3.allnone.ie/client/client_xxx/main/userDetails_Change-details.asp where xxx is your system name.

There are five aspects of the ESS interface

5 Different ESS Data views

There is a master ESS view for the whole business by default which is set in HR Primary Settings. This should be a limited view for the key essentials for all staff. Main Menu > My Details


As a manager may need to have great access / different edit ability for their team, Security Groups facilitate a different ESS view which is stored with the Security Group. Only the manager and assistant manager of the security group can access this view through the HR module. Main Menu > HR Manager > Security Group Manager > Profile My Security Groups > Choose the Security Group > Choose the User


The same also applies for a Department manager / assistant manager who needs different management of their staff. Main Menu > HR Manager > Department Manager > Profile My Departments > Choose the Department > Choose the User


It is also possible to set individual ESS data views by user using the HR module Main Menu > HR Manager > Administration > Update a User.
