Enterprise eTIME is a time and labor management system where staff enter work and non-work (e.g., vacation, sick, personal days, etc.) time. This eliminates the need for paper time cards, reduces the risk for errors, and gives staff a "real time" view of their vacation, personal, and sick time balances.

We have a number of training tools available to assist staff and managers with eTIME. Please click on each tool below to access. (You will be required to log in to the Hofstra portal to access these tools.)
