Well there is just over one month before the new HR Direct will become available. Over the next few weeks there will be much more posted in terms of quick hits of information about topics such as logging in, understanding the navigation, and reviewing your paycheck. Additionally, throughout this month the staff members who perform time data entry will be participating in classroom training.
If you have any questions or concerns about the new HR Direct system be sure to ask. You can post on this blog or you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are also now on Twitter, so you can followus attwitter.com/hrdirect_uml
Timekeepers will have all day on ‘critical Monday’ to do their time entry. The new deadline for entry will be midnight. These extra hours should help campus timekeepers enter all data before pay checks are calculated. We still recommend time entry to be conducted every week.
Also, earlier this week Jose Guerrero from IT Training sent out the invitation for Timekeeper training. Please be sure to sign up for a class as soon as possible — reminder it is REQUIRED for all timekeepers to attend one of these classes prior to the HR Direct go-live on May 4th.
NOTE: Timekeepers are defined as any campus staff member who currently enters employee reported time into PeopleSoft.
Before attending training please make sure to review the following materials as this will give you an idea of the training format.
