Below are a couple of questions that I asked our Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) team. Often unknown to many HR visitors, their services are vital for many processes and project in HR and on campus.
What services/product do you provide to HR?
HRIS provides data reports (historical and current), secures employee data within Banner by granting and revoking access, and provides technical documentation and support related to HR processes. Data provided to HR has been used in regular union contract negotiations, benefits reporting, training administration and payroll processes, to name a few.
What services/product to you provide to campus?
To campus, HRIS provides
- Current and historical data via a report or file for department specific needs;
- EPAF training and support;
- Mass email processing;
- Access to Banner and Banner related products (EPAF, WTE, etc)
What major projects have you supported HR/campus last academic year?
A big HR/campus project is our collaboration with the Benefits Office for Open Enrollment. A smaller project would be collaborating with Institutional Analysis on data integrity and implementing electronic processes including the ability for employees to update their campus directory information within Banweb.
HR is currently collaborating with IT and all departments on campus to implement the Identity Management (IDM) to change how building, printer and drive access is granted to employees through their employment.
