    HR/Payroll Project

    The USC Human Resources/Payroll project is under way. When fully implemented, the new system will improve processes in HR, Payroll, Benefits, Time and Labor, Absence Management, and Self-Service for employees and managers. The new USC HR/Payroll system will bring the University into a new era of technology. This integrated system will help us become more efficient by standardizing processes and eliminating manual tasks.

    The USC HR/Payroll system will offer employee and manager self-service. Employees will be able to request electronic W-2s, set up multiple direct deposits, update personal information, and much more — all in one online location. Managers will have access to comprehensive information about direct reports, and the ability to manage a full range of job actions. The project to build the system is on schedule, with a planned go-live for Phase 1 of January 2019. Phase 1 includes HR, Payroll, Benefits, and associated Self Service functions. Phase 2, with a planned go-live of July 2019, includes Time and Labor, Absence Management, and associated Self Service functions.

    The project website at is stocked with information, updates, handouts, videos, and more.
