Why Build an Employee Portal?

Portals help to maximise employee engagement.

36% of businesses view employee engagement as a top challenge. (Globoforce) Companies with employees who are highly engaged outperform companies with less engagement by an impressive 147 percent in earnings per share.

“A highly engaged workforce means the difference between a company that thrives and one that struggles.”


Employee Self Service

It’s no question that Employee Portals make life simpler for Human Resource departments. Instead of fielding multiple inquiries about a process or event, they can simply post information on the portal for employees to access at their convenience.

News & Events Management

Sales and other personnel can also use portals to surface any of the information held in the company CRM. Instead of wading through a sea of data, they can access a portal to quickly and easily provide the specific information needed for a given job.
