Central IT Staff


The SAP standard solution Human Resource (SAP HR) is used for the management of HR administration, including payroll accounting. Teaching staff and professor data is also managed via this solution.

Online services through which the HR managers of the institutes and departments can trigger various HR processes directly in SAP (see eHR) can also be used. Other online services enable UZH employees to manage their personal data and documents themselves (HR Employee Self-Service (ESS)).

The entire UZH organizational structure is mapped in SAP Organizational Management.


Various processes such as the hiring of employees, the changing of employment level, the changing of account assignment object, the extension of a limited employment contract, or the termination of employment by employees including leaving the company are supported at UZH with digital workflows that are fully integrated into SAP and can be operated via a web interface. These workflows allow the uniform, simple, and intuitive system-guided processing of the above-mentioned HR tasks with a clear distribution of roles for all stakeholders. The workflows offer multilevel release processes and support quality assurance measures.

HR Employee Self-Service (ESS)

HR Employee Self-Service (ESS) are modern and user-friendly online services that enable UZH employees to flexibly manage their personal data and documents themselves. So far, electronic payroll and bank account changes are available. Electronic payroll allows employees to view and download their monthly payroll online at any time. Bank account change allows for quick and easy updating of account information.

HR Employee Self-Service can be used on a computer, smartphone or tablet and is now being continuously expanded with additional services.

HR Employee Self-Service provides an efficient and sustainable solution that guarantees a high level of data security.
