Welcome to Human Capital Management (HCM) Enterprise Applications


The HCM Bundle Maintenance Project was successful, and OTS is currently working with the HR / Payroll team to complete testing close out of and W-2 process for the 2014 Calendar year.

OTS has helped HR complete one of its two new initiatives for this new fiscal year, the Manger Dashboard.   The Manager Dashboard has been available to all active managers since Nov 17, 2014, this new tool has been well received to this point, and additional enhancements are currently under review to further improve the Manager Dashboard user experience.  

The other initiative OTS is working with HR to complete is the Total Compensation Statement, that item has required some additional refinement and employees can expect to hear more about this project in early 2015.

The HCM Road-Map Project is ongoing; OTS has a contract in place with the selected vendor, the vendor came on-site 12/01/2014 and work is under to determine project plan and resources for the various projects under the HCM Road-Map Project.  

As a reminder, this year will be the first year that Lone Star College will not mail W-2’s for active employees, after each employee completes the consent process under Self-Service, the Payroll department will make the W-2's available online and employees will be able to print them at their leisure.   If an employee does not consent, they will have to pick their W-2 up in person at the System Office during a designated period.
