Getting ready to pitch the value of an online HR department? Well-created and well-run HR sites can become a central information source on all areas of programs. An integrated site allows self-service, choice and flexibility for employees. Unlike HR communication tools of the past, there is opportunity for quick updates, interactivity, constant availability and the capability to search through a lot of information quickly.

Too often the decision not to implement an HR site is made because of reasons other than the evidence — perceptions that it will cost too much, take too long, or confuse employees. Get the facts; research features, timing, budget and the cost benefit to the organization; then, make an informed decision.
