Make HR less about paper and more about people
Ascentis Self-Service is an optional module for Ascentis HR, Ascentis Recruiting, Ascentis Time, and Ascentis Payroll which automates what are typically time-consuming processes for HR staff. Self-service provides companies with the following benefits:
Employee Self-Service (ESS) automates traditional processes like direct deposit changes and open enrollment by placing the data maintenance burden on employees. This results in more time for HR staff to focus on the strategic needs of your company like recruiting, training, and retaining the best employees.
Save time and money with employee self-service
Putting benefits choices in front of employees in ways they can understand them answers some of the most repetitive and time consuming questions that HR departments receive during open enrollment. Do you repetitively answer these questions?
These questions take quite a lot of time to explain to just one employee. Multiply that by your entire workforce and you can be losing hours of precious work time each day. Ascentis Employee Self-Service (ESS) automates online open enrollment, enrollment in and updating of direct deposit information, filling out tax forms, gives employees a portal to view the answers to the questions at anytime from anywhere, and provides them the information they need to make good decisions on their own, without once stepping into your office, sending you an email, or calling your phone.
Managing time off has never been easier. Ascentis ESS allows employees to request time off and see where their requests are in the approval process. Automated communications between employee self service and manager self service keeps all parties in the request process up to date.
Even the payroll department sees a decrease in their calls when your employees are using ESS. Ascentis ESS also helps the Payroll Department by providing employees online access to their direct deposit information, current and prior paystubs and W-2’s, and tax simulations to see how pay/tax changes affect their take home pay.
Touch-optimized mobile experience and content sharing
Ascentis mobile delivery makes it easier for companies to increase HR technology adoption rates in their workforce and utilize powerful functionality no matter where they are. Ascentis’ touch-optimized mobile Web environment allows employees to manage and request time-off, access their company directory, and take action on workflow tasks through their mobile devices.
HR administrators can also publish content from RSS feeds and social networks to their self-service dashboard. These various types of content -- also known as widgets -- offer employees deeper engagement with company, department, and job-specific content. Widgets are customizable using simple html through an easy-to-use editor. Clients who have an understanding of website design can create a highly customized dashboard. Employees’ dashboard views can vary based upon their role in the organization. For instance, managers can see manager-specific widgets on their dashboards, like turnover data, hiring and interview tips, benefit utilization, headcount by age range, performance review reminders, and more. Employees can see management announcements, information on benefits, and any other data that requires their attention.
Better decision making with manager self-service
Ascentis Manager Self-Service (MSS) enhances the management decision making process. MSS offers flexible workflows, customizable approval processes and automated e-mail communications. For managers, MSS delivers data for better decisions, increases efficiency and control, and simplifies communications processes.
Employees and managers will love how much faster they can see the information they need, and increases the value your employees see in the benefits of working for you. Human resource managers, department managers and payroll managers will save time and money, and will be able to devote more resources to strategic planning instead of tedious data maintenance tasks.
