HR recently announced the use of Huntington Business Systems (HBS) by postdoctoral scholars to report and track personal time off (PTO), sick leave, and other leaves beginning in November. 

Departments should have received information from HR Postdoc Shared Services on how to review and reconcile PTO and sick leave balances and assign timesheet groups and approvers. Please review the spreadsheets and return them to HR Postdoc Shared Services by Nov. 8 to ensure your postdocs are properly set up in HBS. 

HBS Access

Access to HBS will be available to postdoctoral scholars and departments on Nov. 20. Permissions in HBS will be updated automatically. If you have questions about HBS access, contact [email protected].

Postdoctoral scholars should begin to use HBS to report any leave usage for November by Dec. 7 and submit for department approval. HBS deadlines for timesheet completion and approval will not change.
