About Employee Self Service
Employee Self Service (ESS) is UCCs online application that allows users to access their HR & Payroll information. This service was launched in April 2013 and gives employees the ability to access information such as current and historic payslips, contact details, next of kin details, qualification details etc. It also allows employees and managers to request/approve annual leave, apply for internal vacancies and book a place on a training course.
Currently, the service is available to permanent and fixed term staff and there are plans to roll it out to retired staff and hourly occasional staff in the future.
ESS improves the accuracy of employee data while reducing the need for Human Resources to update personnel details. It also benefits the environment while improving UCC’s 'Green' status by removing the need for paper payslips. Most importantly, it benefits you as it allows you to query and update many personal details without having to contact Human Resources directly.
