Companies invest in an Enterprise Resource Planning solution like the Oracle E-Business Suite to help its operationsand back-office transactions execute more efficiently. A key component to this goal is having timely and accurateaccess to workforce data to support tactical and strategic decisions. Depending on conditions in your enterprise, thedemands the HR department must manage might make your request for information the last thing on the priority list of who gets what and when. For example, on boarding employees during an acquisition might take precedence over arequest for a departmental roster.Oracle Self Service for Human Resources (SSHR) provides secure and user-friendly, browser-based access toworkforce data that managers and employees need for transactional and decision support. Oracle SSHR is secure: Youcan configure it to provide data in a view-only mode or you can combine it with workflow and approval rules. This allowsfor the initiation of data changes that do not get committed to the database until the requisite reviews and approvals areprocessed. The SSHR forms access the same data on the same tables as the standard Oracle HRMS forms but withoutthe need for the Jinitiator.
Managers Managing Their Workforce with a Net
To effectively manage their departments, many line managers and supervisors require knowledge of their workers’ data. The Manager Self Service (MSS) can provide users with access to basic information (names of all direct and indirectreports), as well as advanced information, (assignment data, competencies). The default security model for MSS is toprovide access based upon the value in the Supervisor field on the Assignment form to limit data access to only thoseworkers in their realm.A typical request for information fielded by the HR department is to provide rosters to managers who desire a current listof all direct and indirect reports, or to view the span of control. There is a default MSS view that can be granted tomanagers that provides a list of direct reports with the ability to drill down to all indirect reports by expanding the list. The data in MSS is the same data as in the base Oracle HRMS tables and application. Viewing the data in MSSprovides real time accuracy that cannot be provided via a roster report that is generated and printed or emailed.In this default view, managers can view the assignment related data such as organization, location, job, and hire date.A tab displaying Salary data and history can also be displayed depending on the access rights. Based upon OracleHRMS usage, other tabs displaying Performance, Training, Absence, and Job Application data can be made availablefor managers to view.
