Manager Self-Service (MSS)

The Manager Self-Service (MSS) Center provides a single access point where you can view information about your staff and perform managerial tasks. Features of MSS are intended to cut down on paper forms and allow for quicker information processing. ​

Tutorials and Instructional Guides

NOTICE: Beginning July 2018, ESS and MSS are being refreshed! To offer a more mobile friendly experience, the welcome screen has already been updated. Upon logging in you'll immediately notice the new look, which differs from what you'll see in the below tutorials. Rest assured that the features remain the same. A new logo will also be coming in the near future!
