Firefly to replace ESS on April 14

UNL faculty and staff will soon have a new portal to access their personal information. What was the University of Nebraska's Employee Self Service system will become "Firefly" beginning April 14.

During the next five weeks, faculty and staff will be introduced to the new system via a series of presentations. New user names and passwords will be given at the presentations.

The new user name and password is the biggest change that employees will notice about the new system, along with a new Web address and different screen appearance.

Every benefit-eligible employee will be given access to the new Firefly portal. Informational sessions will be held in the individual university departments through April.
