New People Inc. Employee Directory


Employee contact information is taken directly from the employee’s record within People Inc. and their availability is determined based on their Absence Records (Blue represents Available, Pink represents Unavailable)

Employees can also manually update their current availability using the Status toolbar if they are away from their desk so that other employees can check to see if you are available or not.

Where can I get the new Employee Directory?

The Employee Directory for People Inc. ESS is an add-on that is provided with the latest release of the Employee Self Service module and is available to all customers using People Inc. (an ESS licence maybe required).
