In light of the disruption caused by Covid-19, we are revising our timescales for the CoreHR upgrade and migration of Personnel to the Portal (phase 2.2), which was originally planned for June. We are currently working with departmental and divisional colleagues and our supplier, to find a workable go-live date in early autumn. We are also exploring how best we can prepare users for the upcoming system changes whilst minimising the impact at this busy time. We will shortly communicate confirmed dates and information about the specific impact of this go-live on departments.
Refining our training approach
In response to phase 2.1 feedback, we have reviewed and reduced our eLearning materials, which will now focus on high-level processes only. These will be complemented by support documents, to assist users in completing day to day system tasks. We aim to release support material for phase 2.2 as early as possible to allow users adequate time to prepare for the system changes.

New CoreHR Reporting tool – go-live confirmed
We are pleased to inform you that we are planning to launch the new HR reporting tool on 22 July. The new tool, simply called ‘HR Reporting’, will replace Oracle Discoverer. HR Reporting offers a modern user interface, improved navigation, and easier exporting to Excel.
HR Reporting is very straightforward to use so training will not be required. Instead, a ‘How-to’ guide has been created to support users. Please note that the reports will remain unchanged, and simply hosted on a different platform.
We will be in touch with users within the next couple of weeks to provide further details and instructions on how to access the new tool.
