Each month, your company hires a new wave of employees. If new hires don’t have access to employee essential information such as HR procedures, checklists, forms, and documents, it would be difficult for them to work efficiently. New hires need access to company information so that they can get up to speed with the company's operations and culture, and begin contributing to the organization effectively.
What is an employee HR portal?
An HR portal includes company and HR-related information such as documents, handbooks, forms, and workflows. The good thing is that an HR portal can be part of your company intranet or it can be hosted as a separate site.
Building a Successful HR Portal in Your Intranet
A successful HR portal includes resources and tools that cover the employee’s digital needs.

These resources can include things like training materials, access to equipment and technology, and support from managers and colleagues.
