As seen in our previous blogs, KALES is delivered via a smooth and impressive UI. A prominent feature is Employee Self Service (ESS).

The ability for employees to use the ‘self-service’ feature is vital for the everyday operational activities of an organisation.
Why is employee self-service a good feature? It:

  • promotes efficiency and effectiveness
  • assists employee’s in completing everyday tasks
  • prevents managers from time wasting on lengthy and tedious tasks
  • is a paperless system

Employee Self Service enables employees to manage end to end activities such as core HR, Time and Attendance, Payroll, Talent Management and Recruitment. With KALES, managers may also complete management tasks through Manager Self Service.
In the home page of ESS, there are card based designs for each employee. This can be customised so that only the relevant information is shown to the employee. The most commonly used cards in ESS are:

My Pay: This is where employees have the ability to view their current and past payslips. *XXX* is used for security reasons. Once an employee has viewed their payslip they have the option to either email it or print it.
My Timesheet: This is where employees view their work schedule over the week or the month and also clock in (input) their hours worked.
My Hire Requisitions: This is where employees can place a quick request for a job. In addition, they may also manage requests and accept/reject candidates.
My Leave: This is where employees may request leave, view their past requests and also edit a current request. There is also a function whereby an employee may place a quick request for leave and only fill in basic required information such as end, start date and the reason in a prompt manner.
My Expenses: Here an employee can place a request for an expense, view their past requests and edit a current request. Similarly to leave, you can also place a quick request for an expense.
My performance: Here employees can view their performance appraisal dates for the year and also complete their performance feedback with a regular journal which is a contemporary method for appraisal, as opposed to a bi annual method.
Reviewing these employee self-service features prompts the questions, does your HR system provide this? Does it promote efficiency and effectiveness?
