Training completion rates high as PeopleSoft transition nears
The majority of community members who will be using PeopleSoft, the university’s new Human Resources administrative system, have seized opportunities to take core training essential to operating the system.
“The response thus far has been fantastic,” says training manager Stephen Sakell. “Our goal is to ensure that all system users are fully prepared prior to implementation, and training is a vital component of that preparation.”
To date, approximately 97 per cent of the individuals identified as timekeepers and 96 per cent of the individuals identified as contract hire administrators have completed detailed training in those areas. Of the 446 individuals identified to take the Introduction to PeopleSoft for HR course, 87 per cent have completed that training. Feedback has been outstanding, with a 94 per cent positive response from the more than 1,000 training evaluations submitted.
Users who are participating in multiple training sessions should complete the Introduction to PeopleSoft for HR course prior to attending any other classes in order to ensure that they have a solid understanding of general PeopleSoft HR concepts, and are aware of the upcoming process changes and the impacts they will have on HR activities across the University. Users are also welcome to repeat a course for a chance to refresh their skills and ask any questions they may have.
Identified users who have not completed their required training before February 7 will not be provided with access to the PeopleSoft system on February 20, when the cut-over from the legacy systems to PeopleSoft will be complete.
