Q & A – What is employee self-service?

Q. What is employee self-service?

 

A. Employee Self Service (ESS), is a web-enabled HR portal that allows employees and managers to log-in through a secure password and update emergency information data, benefits information, and other pertinent data specific to that employee.  ESS can potentially make the HR function more effective in that employees can perform much of their own employee status administrative work, thereby freeing up HR staff to focus on more strategic activities.
