Oakland, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2009
Perquest, Inc., a national payroll company, reports businesses have been eager to learn more about a time-saving payroll feature known as Employee Self Service or ESS.
ESS is a payroll service feature that allows an employer’s workforce to access personal payroll information 24/7 from any computer with Internet access. The ESS feature provides immediate answers to some of the most frequently asked payroll questions, such as pay history, tax status, direct deposit, accrued time-off expense reimbursements and more.
An article written by Cheryl Paterson, Vice President of Engineering and Chief Information Officer for Perquest, explains more about ESS in A Beginner’s Guide to Employee Self Service featured in the American Payroll Association February PAYTECH Magazine. To view the article in its entirety, go to News on the Perquest website.
“In today’s economy, businesses of all sizes are proactively searching for ways to streamline internal procedures and maximize staff productivity,” said Shel Perham, chief financial officer and chief operating officer for Perquest.
“Implementing Employee Self Service is a win-win productivity enhancer requiring little or no initial investment. It saves time for payroll administrators by reducing payroll-related questions and interruptions. Employees benefit from a higher level of service gained from immediate access to their personal pay data,” Perham said.
ESS is also considered a green business practice, since information is viewed online, it significantly reduces the need to print, distribute or store payroll information.
Exclusive to Perquest is a bilingual option that allows workers a choice to view their personal payroll information in either English or Spanish, and the self-service feature can be offered to an entire workforce, including full-time, part-time, seasonal or contract employees.
ESS comes standard, at no additional cost as part of Perquest’s payroll outsourcing services.
Employee Self Service is easy to access, environmentally friendly, highly secure and provides a genuine value to both employees and employers.
