Hire Green is a DC Department of Human Resources (DCHR) initiative to develop and promote more streamlined and environmentally friendly operations.
DCHR is committed to incorporating efficiency and conservation into all its operations as it fulfills its mandate “to attract, develop and retain a well-qualified, diverse workforce.” To codify commitment, DCHR has adopted new “eTools” designed to significantly reduce paper usage and eliminate waste from its daily business practices. These new tools are part of the larger Hire Green initiative.
DCHR, in partnership with the Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO), has created eTime and eRecruit modules of the PeopleSoft system to provide District employees and DCHR staff paperless recruitment and payroll processing tools that are faster and more convenient than current methods.
The eRecruit module reduces the time it takes to hire a new employee. It can process job requisitions, applications, job offers and provides a more systematic routing and approval process for the human resources hiring staff.
The eTime module allows all employees with a PeopleSoft login ID and password to enter their own hours worked each pay period. This eliminates the need for paper time sheets. By providing one detailed report, employees are able to devote more time to their core responsibilities instead of chasing paper and signature deadlines.
DCHR is also promoting the Employee Self-Service (ESS) system. ESS provides District employees online access to their personal and benefits information. It is the fastest and most convenient way to check, update and manage employee records, personal data and benefit selections.
The ePerformance is the performance management module used to plan, track and evaluate the performance of employees in PeopleSoft .
