Benefits of Employee Self Service Portal
Employee Self-Service Portal (ESS) is a web-based module that gives employees access to their personal records and employment-related information. Employee Self-Service portal enables employees to manage their own HR and payroll-related information and reduces their dependence on the HR department. It has made the lives of employees and HR professionals much easier. The importance of an ESS portal to an organization has become vital, with the current trend of working from home or remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With remote working, and the technological improvements made on ESS applications, the acceptance and use of ESS has become wide. The need for paper-based HR functions has now become obsolete, with all employee management functions now found on ESS.
Now, employees can access all the information related to leaves, salaries, and reimbursement details at their fingertips.

- User-friendly and effective
The employees can submit requests for vacation, travel, or other reimbursements and requests for leave. ESS portal completely removes the need to email multiple people for applying leaves or submitting paper forms. Once employees make the request via the ESS portal, managers can approve/ disapprove the request instantly which makes it easier for both parties. A username and password is all that takes for you to view and update personal details instantly and securely.
- Transparency of information
ESS portal promises transparency of information as all employee details will be found there and one can check its authenticity anytime. Information on salary revisions, pay history, employment history, and information regarding leave balances, attendance, etc. can be accessed anytime and anywhere.
- Enhanced Data Security
In the past when all the details related to salaries of the employees and other sensitive data were saved in papers, security was a concern. But now, with ESS portals, the question of security does not arise. Only relevant people can access data and that too only if they have the correct login credentials.
- Reduces errors
There are fewer chances for errors and data inaccuracies and even if it occurs it can be rectified immediately. When employees get an opportunity to enter and evaluate their own information subject to approval from concerned HR, errors can be avoided.
- Reduced labor and time
With the help of ESS, portal tasks can be completed much more quickly than traditional paper-based or person-to-person systems. The time employees spent on internal phone calls and meeting the HR department to enquire about various payroll-related stuff can be significantly reduced. Not just employees, the HR department can also concentrate on other corporate management decision-making processes as they will not have employees approaching them for every minor work/ enquiry.
- Can share company updates
ESS portal can be used to share any news/ update related to the company and employees instantly. Changes in company policy, company schedule of holidays, events, and other important dates can be communicated to employees via the ESS portal.
