HR Courses

The Department of Human Resources Administration strives to ensure that employees are aware and knowledgeable of important human resource topics. For that reason, certain courses have been identified to educate employees on variety of these topics.

Click HERE to access these courses. Please note that some are required.

KHRIS Employee Self-Service (ESS) and Self-Time Entry

KHRIS is the Commonwealth of Kentucky's human resource system. It is managed by the Personnel Cabinet and used by Agency Human Resource Administrators to input and maintain employee HR information. Employee Self-Service (ESS) is a part of KHRIS, available through the internet, that allows employees access to certain information. It also includes Self-Time Entry for those agencies that participate.

Available in MyPURPOSE (for training credit), you can also click HERE to access guides and tutorials available to assist in accessing ESS on this website, for reference. 

Note: These are also included in the HR courses.

Performance Management

The Commonwealth of Kentucky's performance evaluation system was developed to assist with communication between the employee and supervisor (evaluator). Performance evaluations are important opportunities for supervisors and employees to share in open dialog concerning attainment and setting of goals as well as the employee's individual performance.
