Employees will regularly have queries relating to the hours they have worked (or the wages they have been paid). Administration staff can take a significant amount of time to deal with these queries. The ESS Pay Period Overview feature is designed to make attendance information available to staff via their PC or mobile phone (freeing-up time for staff in HR or Finance).

Recording Hours Worked

All organisations need to manage the hours employees work, but where staff are hourly paid and work a variety of shifts, managing shift-patterns and recording employee attendance is a fundamental part of the payroll process.

A variety of different people within an organisation will contribute to attendance records. For example, line-managers may provide information about changes to the shift pattern and might approve overtime. HR or Payroll staff will extract the hours worked and process them each week (or each month).

Access to Attendance Records

There are several ways that staff can use the People Inc. Employee Self-Service module to view (and check) information relating to the hours they work.

  • Employees can see their own shift-pattern plus details of hours they have worked using the ESS Scheduler (this tool provides daily entries for these records).
  • They can see a summary of their attendance records (including overtime records) for each pay period. This should match the wages paid to them.
  • It s also possible to provide employees with access to their payslips via the People Inc. ESS.

While line-managers usually have access to the staff roster and to detailed attendance records (for their team) via the People Inc. time module, the ame information can now be made available via the ESS. For managers, an overview of the shift patterns (roster), the hours worked each day, and the pay-period overview is provided per group/department. This is useful if they are away from their PC and need access to the information quickly.
