For Employees

Posted on October 5, 2020 | Filed under General News

The on-line Employee Directory has been updated using the new HR/Payroll Colleague System. If you use this directory, you will find that it looks somewhat different. As with all new processes, delivered information does not always look the same as we are accustomed to seeing. The basic and needed information is provided and as we continue to make our way through this new system, additional information may be added in the future. We appreciate your understanding. If you find that you need to make an update to your on-line directory information, your emergency contact information and/or your personal information (such as home address), you can access Employee Self-Service to complete the associated form(s) needed for any change you are wanting to make. The forms for these updates can be found under the menu item either “Employment/Employee” or “User Options.” A couple of things to keep in mind: 1) if you are changing your emergency contact information, we encourage you to include the individual’s email address in the address field as opposed to their full address. This is only encouraged, not required. And, 2) for all current employees, as we transition from Employee Navigator to Employee Self-Service, updates to this particular information no longer needs to be made through Employee Navigator

The Wise Center will open on Wednesday, September 16, at 7 a.m. We will be using a reservation system for individuals working out since every space in the Wise Center will have limited capacity. You can reserve a one-hour individual time slot on this link the day before you plan to workout. You can also download the SignUpGenius app on the app store or just go to signupgenius.com. Create an account. Click the menu in the top right and choose “Find A Sign Up.” If you are on a computer, use the search feature. It will ask you to enter the creator’s e-mail. Enter cvanalstyne@allegheny.edu and then sign up for your space. We have four rowers and nine spin bikes on court 1. Club sports or other clubs in groups of no more than 10 will still e-mail sdenillo@allegheny.edu to schedule space. If you have any questions please e-mail jluteran@allegheny.edu or cvanalstyne@allegheny.edu. You can also follow @alleghenyrecreation on Instagram for updates.
