Timekeeping and HR Transaction Training Resources and Information Available

A cross-functional team continues to make progress to introduce timesaving systems to improve timekeeping and core HR transactions. This technology will bring new, simpler processes that result in the quicker inputting of more accurate data, ultimately allowing employees to spend less time on administrative functions and more time on their individual priorities. With the assistance of operational leaders and a knowledge network of department administrators, the project remains on track for a July 30 go live.

Technology Solutions and Benefits

The timekeeping process change brings more efficiency and reliability to the way individuals track their time, whether they are hourly or salaried employees reporting vacation. The system replaces the iJAN (Job Action Notice) and Appointments tools with simpler online forms designed for each transaction. The streamlined system is also mobile-friendly and provides flexibility for managers and employees.

Many core human resources transactions, including approvals, position requests, hiring and mid-year compensation changes will be simplified. Security for viewing data and approving transactions can be tailored for each school, college or administrative unit to ensure reliability and confidentiality of the data.

Training Sessions Available

A number of training opportunities and resources are now available for individuals who currently use the system to perform their job responsibilities or will in the future. The schedule for July is posted on the Answers website.

Individuals who should attend these training sessions will receive more information through their operational leaders, as well as email and other campus communications channels.
