Phase 2 Streamlining our HR processes


Staff Connect - Phase 2

Last year the University launched a new integrated HR and Payroll system - Staff Connect. This introduced a new HR and Payroll system, management reports and the foundations of employee self-service.

The next phase of work on Staff Connect is now getting underway. It will see the phased introduction over the next year or so of further functionality to the system, enabling an automated, streamlined, single point of entry for many of our HR functions.

The aim of the second phase of Staff Connect is to streamline our HR processes and provide employees and managers with a one-stop-shop for most of your HR-related activity.

By the end of second phase of development to Staff Connect you will be able to book onto training provided by L&OD and request annual leave via the system. If you line manage others, Staff Connect will be where you go to authorise training and leave requests from your team.

It will also be where you log absence and note that RPDs have been conducted. If you are a recruiting manager, Phase 2 will also see the replacement of the current i-grasp recruitment system.

Take a look at our information and benefits pages for information on all the developments planned for Phase 2.
