Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors at the UK Data Archive?

Filed under: Latest news, What's on — Tags: , — Communications Office @ 3:28 pm

To celebrate its 50th anniversary the UK Data Archive is holding an open morning specifically for Professional Services staff at the University.

As a secure data environment the UK Data Archive is usually behind locked doors, so this is a rare opportunity to visit the Archive.

Date: Wednesday 11 January 2017

Programme:

10.30am: Welcome and introduction to the UK Data Archive

10.45am-11.15am: What does the UK Data Archive actually do? Short presentations of its key work

11.15am-12 noon: Enjoy coffee and cake, meet staff and see project work

The open morning will give you a whistle-stop tour of the Archive’s work, give guests the opportunity to meet staff and hear about some of our latest projects involving research and development, training and teaching, research data management and more.

To fulfil security obligations as a secure data environment the Archive will need to have a list of visitors, so if you would like to come along please RSVP to comms@ukdataservice.ac.uk in advance.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.

Say goodbye to lost paper records and duplication – say hello to People Manager.

People Manager is a management self-service tool that will allow for real-time sickness reporting and online annual leave authorisation. It will also bring administrative benefits like making lost paper records and duplication things of the past.

Like HR Organiser, People Manager is also driven by iTrent – the core HR and Payroll system.  The iTrent system has a range of uses and modules which are being introduced in phases,  helping us simplify and bring consistency to our management tasks.

People Manager will be piloted within HR, Finance, ISS and UKDA before a phased roll-out to ensure a smooth transition across the University.  All Professional Services sections will go live from 1 April 2014 followed by the Faculties over the next 12 months.

Look out for up-dates in Essex Weekly over the coming weeks
