Some changes will be made in early February to the way our HR/Payroll system, Keele People, is hosted.
From 8 February, rather than being hosted on servers managed by the University, the system will move to being hosted in the Cloud. This will help the system to run faster, as well as making it available even if connection to campus servers is lost.
To enable the move to take place, the system will be unavailable for both employee self-service and operator/admin for a week from 5pm on Friday 29 January.
This means that colleagues will be unable to access the system to carry out tasks such as booking annual leave, viewing payslips, and booking onto training workshops, amongst other things.
The only change which colleagues will notice once this move has taken place will be that the log-in method will change to the Microsoft log-in (email address and password) rather than the existing username and password log-in.
Colleagues who have Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication enabled will also need to authenticate using this new method once the log-in has changed.
Once logged in, the system itself will look and work the same as colleagues are used to.
