PeopleSoft HR is the software the university uses to power day-to-day HR tasks and manage peoples' information. Many faculty and staff see a snippet of this type of information in myHR (PeopleSoft HR Self Service) when they enter time, review their leave balances, enroll in insurance and much more. Human Resources professionals access and maintain this information in the course of their job through PeopleSoft HR Production.

Training guides and interactive simulations related to the actions employees can complete in myHR are available to faculty and staff systemwide by visiting the UM System myHR Training (PeopleSoft HR Self-Service) webpage. Review information on payroll, benefits, time reporting, updating personal information and more.

Training materials are maintained by UM System for all campuses; visit the PeopleSoft HR Support webpage for tutorials and instructions related to benefits, ePAFs, payroll, time and labor, recruiting and more.
