Stress-Free Employee Self-Service

Employee self-service has been revolutionary for employees and HR departments alike. Pretty much every HR function can now be carried out online, with a large element being handed over to the employee using self-service portals. Whether your HR department needs payroll, reward, recognition, flexible benefits, pension or anything else, the likelihood is that they all come with a self-service portal for employee access.

The headache for most HR departments has evolved from one of providing services to one of managing access to services, many of which are provided by third parties. Add to that that the audiences may include former employees as well as current employees and you have a mix of problems that fall outside many of the traditional departmental boundaries.

One solution has been for one of the service providers to offer the ability to add access to other systems from their self-service portal. The problem is that it creates further lock-in to that provider. In a world where you need to be selecting and working with best-in-class providers this is far from ideal!

Wouldn't it be great if you had a single place where current and former employees can access all of the services relevant to them from all of the different providers that you use? Where you could create consistent communications and manage service access to all of your stakeholders systematically and on the fly? A system which isn't tied to any provider and that can work alongside your internal employee only systems? Such things exist, we call them 'Consolidated HR Hubs'.
