How to Login to Employee Self-Service Portal  (ESS)

All employees have an account in the County HR Information System, SAP. The SAP Employee Self-Service portal is available for you to login. The SAP Employee Self-Service (ESS) portal is a web-based portal that provides one-stop access for all Prince George’s County employees to submit, display, and change information. The ESS portal can be accessed from a computer with internet access. You do not need to be connected to the County Government network to access the system. The ESS portal can be accessed using the following steps: 

  1. Open your Internet browser (Acceptable Internet browsers: Internet Explorer (9 or higher), Firefox, Safari, or Chrome)
  2. Enter the Portal web address: https://portal.sap.mypgc.us/irj/portal
  3. Enter your User ID (Please note this if the first 12 characters of your County email address; e.g., County Email: JonathanSmith@co.pg.md.us, ESS Login: JonathanSmit is the first 12 characters)
  4. Enter your initial Password (Please note this must be entered in all capital letters; the initial password will be the first four letters of your User ID and the last 4 numbers of your County Employee ID number; e.g., ESS Login: JonathanSmit, Employee ID number: 12344 = Password: JONA2344)
  5.  Click Log On
