Staff Connect – launch follow-up

Staff Connect, the new self-service for employees launched on Wednesday 21 June.  At this time, we are aware that some teething problems remain and are in discussions with the supplier to get these resolved quickly, however,  we believe that sufficient support is in place to help any staff that might be hindered.

We have already delivered a number of drop-in sessions at both Canterbury and Medway campuses and more are planned.  HR and project staff are available to help with any queries you may have and to offer support in accessing the system.  Further information on these sessions can be found at the Staff Connect website.

You will now be able to access and/or update some of your personal information, as well as view your payslips online. This means there will be no hard copy payslip sent out for June, employee payslips will only be available online.

The introduction of Staff Connect has many benefits to both the University and to the employee, such as easy access to personal information (via a secure portal), reduced stationery and printing costs and as records are centralised, there is no need to maintain locally held records that typically become out of date very quickly (e.g. emergency contact details).

If you’d like to refresh your knowledge on using Staff Connect, you can find help and support available online on the Staff Connect Project page.

Please note: The recommended web browser for using Staff Connect is Chrome, especially if you want to download copies of your pay documents.  Or as a Manager if you wish to use some of the Manager functions for which it is essential. If you do not have Chrome on your personal device, you can download it directly from Google.
