Preparing for MyHR self service portal
September 2, 2015
Preparations are underway for the launch this fall of MyHR, a new online portal where employees can access and edit some of their Human Resources-related information.
“Employees who go online to bank or manage their professional memberships should find MyHR intuitive and easy to use,” says Al Orth, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Resources). “However, we recognize the portal is entirely new for Queen’s employees, and we want to ensure they have resources necessary to become comfortable using the tool.”
The MyHR portal allows employees to go online to:
- View and print pay advice slips (pay stubs) and T4/T4A forms
- View their benefits summary
- Change their home address and some of their banking information
- Update emergency contact information
Human Resource is developing supporting documentation to help employees take advantage of these new self-service options. Through illustrated screenshots of the self-service environment, the supporting documents will provide step-by-step instructions for completing tasks and accessing information in MyHR.

The supporting documentation will be posted online several weeks before MyHR launches at the end of October. Managers will receive the documents and distribute paper copies to employees who don’t use a computer during their workday.
Human Resources will host drop-in training sessions several weeks after MyHR launches. The sessions will give employees the opportunity to receive additional training on the new portal should they feel they need it.
Employees can access the secure and private MyHR portal through any computer using their NetID and password. A computer will be set up in the lobby of the main Human Resources office in Fleming Hall, Stewart Pollock Wing for employees who do not have access to a computer at work and wish to use the self-service functionality.
Human Resources is introducing MyHR as part of the upgrade to the HR PeopleSoft system. Employees who use HR PeopleSoft as part of their job duties, such as timekeepers, will receive additional training in October.
