Coming soon! MyPortal Demographic Tile

In order to improve the collection of employee demographic data, OFM is excited to announce an upcoming self-service tile in My Portal called My Demographic Data.

To align with our efforts to attract, retain, and develop a diverse workforce, we will soon be giving employees the ability to update select personal data in MyPortal. We believe this change will result in fresher, more accurate and representative reporting and reduce administrative burden to maintain updated information. Agencies and the enterprise will have better data to support more informed decision-making around inclusivity and the representation of underrepresented groups in our state workforce.

The new My Demographic Data tile will allow employees to add and/or update the following demographic data:

  • Gender Identity
  • Gender Designation for Health Insurance Purposes (Sex Assigned at Birth in HRMS)
  • LGBTQ+
  • Military Spouse
  • Veteran Status
  • Race
  • Disability

Employees will be able to view only additional demographic information such as:

  • Date of Birth
  • Military Status (future enhancement)
  • Military Branches (future enhancement)

Upon initial implementation, My Demographic Data in MyPortal will display HRMS data from Infotypes 0002 – Personal Data and 0077 – Additional Personal Data. When an employee makes an update in My Portal, the change will update the respective Infotype in HRMS with an effective date of the next business day.

My Demographic Data is anticipated to be implemented in November/December 2020. While we plan to have online user procedures and project status information available on the MyPortal system page, we will also rely on agency HR shops to communicate this update to employees.

A follow-up communication with a confirmed implementation date will be sent as soon as it is available.
