VITAS uses the PeopleSoft HR system for both benefits and payroll. Once logged into the system, employees can accomplish everything from enrolling for benefits to viewing their paychecks, past and present. Using PeopleSoft, employees can also view their direct deposit setup; however, they cannot make any changes. For guidance on how to navigate the system, employees can go to the VITAS Benefits Homepage and click on the PDF link to the Employee Self-Service User Guide on the right side.
When connected to the VITAS network, employees can access the PeopleSoft site by clicking on the Employee Benefits link on the i-net home page. When outside of the VITAS network, employees can use a link given to them by IT to gain access. Once on the PeopleSoft site, an employee must log in to access information and make changes.
The PeopleSoft site has three primary components for employees: personal information, benefits home, and payroll and compensation home. Each component has several sub-headings, allowing the employee to perform different applications, such as changing contact information or adding emergency contacts. Employees can even look up paychecks dating back several years, view direct deposit accounts or print full pay statements. There is also an option to update W-4 information and allowances.
The PeopleSoft site, used by VITAS and many other businesses nationwide, is a one-stop-shop for HR-related tasks that employees are permitted to complete independently.
