Employee Self Service (ESS) systems allow employees to access their personal information and perform various job-related functions, without having to ask for help from an HR administrator. In an increasingly competitive employee talent market, employee self-service technology can help create a positive work culture and retain talent by giving workers direct control over their employment information.
ESS systems are good for employees because they have more autonomy to perform functions like payroll updates, pay preference updates, and paid time off (PTO) requests. Employees will also have easy access to information like benefits enrollment, company policies, and news. Managers also benefit from the self-service portal with access to their team information and the ability to better support their team as they can review time-off requests, edit team schedules, approve timecards, track and manage goals, and more.
