Sage Employee Self Service (Sage ESS)
Automate your company’s business processes and promote workplace satisfaction by giving employees ownership of their personal information with Sage Employee Self Service (Sage ESS). With workflow capabilities and customizable features, Sage ESS provides a central location for employees, managers, and administrators to view and manage important personal data and company information. Instead of calling the HR department with routine inquiries, employees and managers will feel more self-sufficient when they can access information, such as time off, current benefits, and current job details— anytime, anyplace over the Internet or company intranet.
With Sage ESS, employees are empowered to view important personal data with a few clicks of a mouse. They can view information such as skills, events, current job, employment history, and performance reviews. They are also able to update certain fields such as personal information, emergency contacts, education, and medical conditions.
Managing time off has never been easier. Employees can view time-off balances, available attendance plans, and absence transactions. They can request time off and edit or delete time-off requests.
Employees have instant access to view personal benefits information, including dependents, insurance benefits, savings benefits, beneficiaries, employee premium costs, and employer contribution costs.
Employees are given instant access to view payroll information including paycheck details and pay history. Employees can even view and print pay stubs.
Sage ESS allows managers instant access to important employee information. They can view direct reports’ personnel and job information, view and post employee notes, view birthday lists and attendance information, and review and approve time-off requests. With the organizational drill-down feature, managers can easily locate personnel information on any employee within that manager’s organizational chart.
Sage ESS includes a role that permits supervisors to view and approve time-off requests, without seeing other sensitive employee information.
Your sensitive employee benefits data is protected with secure FTP (SFTP) and secure socket layer (SSL) Internet security protocols, PGP encryption standards, and authentication certificates.
Features such as password protection and Microsoft SQL Server® database security ensure that employees’ sensitive data remains secure. Sage ESS also supports 128-bit SSL encryption to protect data transmitted over the Internet.
Sage ESS includes built-in customization tools that allow your company to tailor the system to suit your needs and create a central portal for your employees to access important company information. Define URL links to third-party websites, post company documents such as employee handbooks, display user-defined fields, turn pages on and off, and more. You can even change the color scheme of pages and add your company logo.
