SUNNYVALE, Calif. – At Star One Credit Union, when it comes to human resources administrative work self-sufficient employees can’t be beat. The $2.3 billion credit union has tapped Seekonk, Massachusetts-based iEmployee to automate several of its more time-consuming HR functions. “Going paperless has been a tremendous help to me,” said Star One CU Executive Administrator Tina Pellegrini. “Being able to just view the timesheets makes it a lot easier than going through interoffice mail and making sure that I have every timesheet. What used to take me at least five hours has been drastically reduced and I have more time to devote to other functions.” Early this year, the executive management team opted to streamline the laborious process which involved a long paper trail that passed through at least three sets of hands and required the manual input of every timesheet which then had to be alphabetized for auditing purposes and transmitted biweekly. According to Pellegrini, despite working from an Excel spreadsheet it was still very challenging to make changes or corrections to timesheets. “We found that if the employee can input something himself or herself, it is less likely to result in an error,” said Pellegrini. Here is how it works. iEmployee is Web-native, meaning it is pre-installed at a host Application Service Provider and is ready to run inside a browser. Star One CU staffers can now access and manage their HR information such as benefits, timesheets and expense reports via the Internet, anytime, anywhere. Mangers then electronically approve the timesheet, which can be viewed by Pellegrini. Pellegrini says the reaction so far has been positive and the credit union is still getting familiar with the product. “We know it can create reports for management and has the capability for employees to change their personal information such as address and phone number but we are still open to other ways we can implement in the future,” said Pellegrini.
