Human Resources' redesigned web site at now lets employees access information on health and welfare, retirement, career planning, organization development, compensation and more.
Staffing Services now hosts web pages for hiring managers, internal candidates and outside viewers who are looking for a job at MIT. While some of this information has been available online in the past, it's now together in a more accessible form.
Some of the most popular services offered by Human Resources can now be accessed directly from the new home page. Major services are grouped according to intuitive categories (prospective employee, employee, manager, retiree) instead of functional areas within the department.
"This allows employees to easily find the service they're seeking, without having to know who in Human Resources provides that service," explained Laurie Bryce, web manager for Human Resources. "For example, if you're interested in our tuition assistance program, you'll find that under the 'Employees' menu--one click and you're there."
The web site provides a consistent and easily recognizable interface for all pages that fall within the department. Employees will find direct access to employee self-service options through SAP and the new job applicant tracking system hosted by WebHire.
