Transition to new HR administrative system set to begin
On February 17, after many months of planning, testing and training, the university’s transition to a new Human Resources administrative system will begin. Over the next five days, HR PeopleSoft will be brought into production, beginning with processing for the first bi-weekly and casual payroll in March.
“It’s important to recognize the tremendous amount of work that has gone into this project,” says Caroline Davis, Vice-Principal (Finance and Administration). “We appreciate the significant complexity and challenges involved in this implementation, but we also know that, working together, we can see our way through to success.”
The project has been brought to this phase thanks to the members of the HR and QUASR project teams, staffing officers, user acceptance testers and many other members of the Queen’s community who have spent many hours in an effort to prepare for this launch.
The new system will provide improved access to information, better consistency across departments, a reduction in risks, and more effective compliance with policy and regulations. Over time, the university will be in a stronger position to deliver services and better able to manage human resources.
Many campus users have taken advantage of the extensive training opportunities that have been offered over the last several months, and will continue to make use of online tutorials, training guides and “how-to” job aids. More information about training and support can be found on the website.
