Personnel Accessing the Personnel Manager will enable you to view all personal data the HR Directorate holds on current and past staff according to your security rights. After clicking on the data button you will be presented with the sectional areas that make up the Personnel Manager. Selecting any of these options will display personal information for that category. To search and select and employee, simply type in the surname of the staff member and Compel will filter down to that record. You can scroll through records by using the arrow keys in the top left hand corner of the screen. To search for an employee number, change the indicator to “Employees by Staff Number” and then type in the staff ID. This same method can be used for searching through the leavers’ database. You can also search for staff by using the list button. Personal Data The screen is split into two sections. The upper section will show the employees name, job title, HR staff number, department and acronym. The lower window has eight tabs which display each category of personal information. The first tab displays basic personal information as seen here. The work tab will display the current service start date and the first entry data to Cardiff University. Internal contact info will also be shown here. Emergency contact details will be shown here. This is used to track any documents currently being sought when there is a change of details to the contract, the current position of the authorisation process is also held here. Leaver details are populated with a reason for leaving and a leaving destination. Job & Pay The main job & pay screen will display a summery of all of the contractual changes that have happened in date order throughout an employee’s employment. Clicking on the details button will display the record that is marked by the black arrow. The individual job and pay records will display the details of the contractual change.
