Employee self-service websites contain personnel, benefit and payroll information such as emergency contacts, beneficiaries, leave time, pay stubs and company policies. This system contains the details necessary for an employee to answer questions and make changes to the information in his file.
A company determines the information and capabilities each employee has within a self-service website. This type of site lists information included in employment documents, such as contact information and current benefits selected. The user can access this information to ensure its accuracy and update the details as they change.
The pay stub section allows users to search for previous pay periods to review payroll information. The system often includes tax information, such as withholdings based on the W-4 forms and printable W-2 forms at the end of the year. This section also includes accrued and remaining leave balances so the employee can plan for upcoming time off.
If the company requires specific trainings, the self-service website may include the list of trainings and related completion dates. For online trainings, the website may provide a direct link to the online training module.
Other company information may include organizational charts and employee handbooks or company policies. Employees may also have access to internal job listings and the option to apply for openings.
