eESS (electronic Employee Support System)
eESS (Electronic Employee Support System) is a new system being developed for NHS Scotland and will go live in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde soon.
The new system will hold an employee record for all employees of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. This system will interface with Payroll and SSTS (Scottish Standard Time System) to provide real time workforce information and reports. Key features of the system will include:
- Core HR
- Employee Relations
- Learning Management System
- Self Service - Employees can view their employment record, make changes to personal data e.g. address and request training.
- Manager Self Service - Managers can approve requests and, via the system, put changes such as change of work base through to payroll. Managers will also be able to use self service for improved workforce record keeping and reporting.
