There’re a few really good reasons to open your printed issue of Impact this week (you should have it by now). There are some great stories of “regular” people doing remarkable things. It’s also the Employee Service Day issue, and it’s always fun to look for names of people you know (or maybe yourself). And, you may have been hearing the mysterious acronym “HCM” (It stands for always-strikes-me-as-odd “Human Capital Management”–the people part of the PeopleSoft system). One of the things we’ll notice is a change in the way we access our electronic pay statements/stubs; another is the way the stubs look. Impact’s got an annotated peek at the new statement.
It’s going to be a change, and even though this one’s been years in the making, there’s been no shortage of change on campus this summer. But I like the way the new statement looks, I like that it’s more secure than email, and I like that I can go one place and change most of my own information, or look at past statements and accrual balances. So this payroll statement change will be OK by me. It starts in October. More information’s in Impact.
