What is MyHR?
The aim of the MyHR project is to make information held in QMUL's HR/Payroll back office systems available, and put to much greater use, through web-based employee and manager self-service access to relevant processes and data.
Processes that currently fall within this category are:
- Employee driven changes:
- personal details changes, next of kin changes, view and print pay slips and P60’s, etc, request annual leave via an online form.
- Manager access (for line managers and HoDs)
- managers can view contractual information about their staff and authorise requests for annual leave.
How does MyHR work?
Web software, connecting to the HR database is accessed through a secure connection over QMUL's intranet.
With MyHR you can logon and edit the details, this submits an electronic form to QMUL's HR/Payroll back office systems (ResourceLink) and automatically updates your details on central records.
