What is the role of an HR Partner in ESS/MSS?

An HR Partner is a staff member given the role to review and approve ESS/MSS requests submitted through the ESS/MSS portal and that require HR review and approval; e.g. changes in Personal Data such as marital status and nationality, Entitlement Requests such as adding/editing dependants, and Time Management requests such as certified sick leave, extended leave, etc. In the absence of a senior Time Administrator, HR Partners also make changes to data converted prior to Umoja Go Live (1 November 2015), and/or outside the approved time frames e.g. requesting an uncertified sick leave dating one month beyond the entry date. Please refer to the link provided for the list of HR Partners.
