Over the past decade companies have invested time and dollars to create employee portals. Designed to provide a single site where the workforce could go to get the information they needed, when they needed it - to complete the entire arrange of work and life events - portals have become somewhat mainstream. But while the concept is still valid, most employee portals have not come close to meeting the goal.
The problem is that most employee portals are based upon self-service transaction solutions and static pdf documents - and most events cannot be managed start-to-finish without 3rd party intervention for more information. Today's internet-savvy workforce is used to portals - think Vehix.com or Amazon - that are personalized, searchable and interactive. They contain dynamic modeling and decision support tools. And they are collaborative and support social networking.
In other words, popular internet sites contain - all within two clicks - the information, tools, personalization and transactional capabilities required to complete events in single sessions. And so this is the standard by which your workforce finds effective - and leverages - your organization's portal. That's why many organizations are adding innovative communications technologies - such as graphics-based decision support modeling tools, interactive knowledgebases based on personalization and intuitive search, onboarding portals, collaboration and social networking tools - to their portals to create interactive, dynamic employee portals that are effective, available 24x7 and highly used.
Attend this webinar to learn more about the components of the next generation (which is here now!) of employee portals and the communications technologies that are helping companies achieve their original portal goals.
