VTHR General Information:

VTHR is a multifaceted system the State utilizes to process hires, track employee movement, create payroll and house data necessary for Federal and State reporting.

Who Needs Access and Why?

  • All active State employees are granted access upon hire to Employee Self Service (ESS). ESS allows employees to view/update personal information, pay and tax information; in addition to timesheet entry and benefits enrollment.
  • Additional access can be requested based on an employee’s position and/or job duties as assigned.  please see Universal Role Descriptions VTHR 9.1 to learn of the different commonly used roles in VTHR.
