Employee Self Service -- Did You Know
In addition to being used to capture Changes of Address, Employee Self Service (ESS) can also be used to capture a Preferred Name/Nickname. For example, if the legal name on your Social Security Card is ‘Robert,’ you may prefer to be addressed as ‘Johnny.’ All official documents will continue to display your legal name, but saving a nickname in ESS allows for more personalized interactions with Human Resources.

After logging in to with your employee login, the electronic form to update Nickname can be accessed under Employee Self Service => Personal Information => Nickname. Once the change has been entered, select the blue ‘Update’ button to automatically save the name to your employee record.
