Employee self-service is an essential part of any HRMS. It provides employees access to their personal records. Apart from this, employees are also enabled to do much of their HR operations like applying for leave, accessing their timesheets, viewing necessary policy documents and more. An efficient ESS not just empowers employees to handle their basic activities by themselves, it also helps HR save time.

As an admin, everything that is pertaining to an employee can be viewed right on the self-service page. All it takes is a quick search with the employee's name or other keywords like a nickname or mobile number. All the details of the employee like leave, attendance, files shared and related forms can be seen here. List of team members can be viewed and they can be contacted right from this page.
