Maximize talent with a employee self-service portal

Maximize talent with a employee self-service portal

The Challenge 

Employers, and more specifically Human Resource departments, face many administrative burdens and transactional challenges every day. These tasks are often redundant, taxing, and require little skill to accomplish. In order to maximize on the time and talent of your staff, introduce employee self-service (ESS) HR Software systems.

What is employee self service (ESS)? 

ESS systems are online workplace tools that provide employees with unique logins that allowing them to view and edit personal information at the click of a button. Traditionally, only HR could make these transactional changes as employee records and documentation were all paper-based. With online EES options available, HR managers and admins can now provide employees with the ability and permission to enter and edit personal information as needed.

The idea here is that with the proper tools, employees they can handle small, day-to-day transactions without any assistance, giving administrators more time to complete important strategic and specialized job functions.

PTO tracking

Similar to the Time & Attendance feature, BerniePortal also allows employees to submit PTO requests to managers for review. Once submitted, the manager can approve or deny the request and maintain record of used and remaining PTO for each employee - regardless of your organization's specific PTO policies.


Once a candidate accepts a job offer, the employer or BerniePortal account administrator can invite the new hire to create a BerniePortal account. After creating an account, BerniePortal will prompt the new hire to begin onboarding and guide them through each step in the process. Additionally, the new hire can complete all onboarding via phone before their first day.

Benefits enrollment

Once the new hire has completed the onboarding process, BerniePortal will help them navigate their benefits enrollment. The employer can attach custom and company-wide documents and resources throughout the enrollment process in order to answer any questions employees might have.

Employee self-service saves time, paperwork, and headache for HR administrators and managers across an organization. With this uninterrupted time, imagine what other priorities they could be working on!
