The Employee Center gets a makeover

You’ll soon notice the Employee Center in One.IU sporting a refreshed look.

By this summer, the Employee Center will complete a move to the PeopleSoft platform. You’ll notice the visual updates, but don’t worry—nothing about the functionality is changing. You can still edit personal information, look at your paycheck details, view benefits, and more. The Employee Center’s name and location in One.IU will stay the same, too.

With these updates, the Employee Center will be more secure, optimized for mobile devices, and able to support new or enhanced features in the future.
