17 March 2017: ESS downtime 17 - 23 March

As part of the Human Resources Department's ongoing aim to enhance the efficiency of our service offerings, SAP HR Employee Self-Service (ESS) was launched to enable staff members to view their payslips and IRP5 forms online. At times, the SAP HR system requires limited downtime to ensure compliance through the application of legislative updates and to give effect to ongoing service improvements. It is in this context that ESS will be unavailable from 16:00 on Friday, 17 March, until 14:00 on Thursday, 23 March. This means that you will not be able to view your payslip or IRP5 during this time. Access will resume following this period.
