Employee self-service (ESS) is a method for employees to gain direct access to HR-related data via a company’s web portal. Most modern HR management systems have ESS portals, which allow employees to do job-related tasks that were previously handled by HR. ESS can be used by the employees to handle a variety of human resources and job-related duties that would normally have to be handled by HR department or management. ESS can help different businesses to save time and money by allowing employees to do things themselves. However, maybe this system is not successful for every business. ESS is a self-service platform that all of your employees, not just HR experts, have access to as part of the program. Employees can view their pay slabs, schedules, and information about the benefits, as well as make changes to their personal information.
