Key roles identified as HR PeopleSoft implementation draws near
In the coming weeks, university department heads or their designates will identify employees to fill roles crucial to the implementation of the new HR PeopleSoft administrative system in December.
“It’s important that these roles are filled well in advance of the system’s implementation so that employees in these roles can take advantage of the training courses that will begin in October,” says Julie Mekarski, Director, Organizational Development and Learning.
This information, collected through a web-based application, will inform decisions about who has access to the new system and receives HR PeopleSoft training.
The designated “timekeeper” will document time, attendance, vacation and short-term leave for university employees (other than faculty members or students hired on a contract). The number of timekeepers can be set up according to the size and composition of the departments they cover.
In addition to timekeepers, departmental HR administrators will be responsible for processing decentralized contract hires for casual workers, students and research staff. Departments responsible for hiring casual workers, students and research staff need to designate one or more people to take on the departmental HR administrator role; they will be authorized and trained to enter data using the new PeopleSoft System.
These key roles help ensure staff time is accurately recorded for payroll purposes, as well as adherence to existing Queen's policies.
