HR Reporting System (FOCUS)

Service Description

FOCUS is a full-featured HR reporting and relationship management tool for the Faculty of Medicine that provides units one place to track and manage demographic data about faculty members. Managed by the Faculty’s Human Resources office, FOCUS was developed and is supported by the Discovery Commons specifically to meet the needs of the Faculty of Medicine. It accepts information from multiple sources (primarily HRIS), allows units to create their own custom information fields, and provides powerful robust tools to generate reports.

Discovery Commons provides user training on a regular basis to show users the common features contained in FOCUS. Note that expert level users of FOCUS require an extensive understanding of HRIS data and its structures. DC cannot provide training or assistance with HR and HR data matters.
