Implementation methods

You must determine the best way for your organization to implement the Employee and Manager Self-Service application. Generally, organizations perform a complete or phase one implementation or a multiphased implementation. Each implementation is described here.

Note: You can select a pilot department (usually the Human Resources department) to test the Employee and Manager Self-Service application. The pilot department can uncover any implementation dilemmas before rolling out the product to all employees and managers.

Complete or phase one implementation

A phase one implementation is when the self-service applications and Human Capital Management is implemented simultaneously and may involve additional setup tasks. A phase one implementation of Employee and Manager Self-Service provides immediate benefits to an organization. For example, reduction of paperwork, elimination of intermediaries, and increased data accuracy.

Because the Employee and Manager Self-Service is new to your organization, you must develop a strong communication plan to promote and teach employees how to use the application.

Multiphased implementation

A multiphased implementation is when you set up Human Capital Management during one phase, and then set up Employee and Manager Self-Service during a later phase of the implementation.

Also, you can select to implement specific components of Employee and Manager Self-Service in phases. For example, you can initially implement only certain tasks in Employee Self-Service then implement Manager Self-Service, web benefit enrollments, or other pieces in stages.
