Employees can expect online internal services and communication to increase in 2002, according to a survey by HR consulting firm Towers Perrin.

Despite the slower economy, companies will continue to invest in online HR services, in order to take advantage of the efficiency, accuracy, speed and lower costs of online HR functions.

Fully 91 per cent of the more than 200 survey respondents use the Web to communicate with employees, and just under half (48 per cent) give employees the ability to manage certain services on their own, such as enrolling in benefit plans or training courses.
