Abstract

An Employee Portal allows an employer to deliver an aggregation of services and information to employees over a company intranet, strengthening employee loyalty by providing additional benefits and assisting employees to maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life. Employees link to a customized extranet portal through a hyperlink from the company's intranet. The portal, a scalable, customizable software application leased to the company on a subscription basis from a service provider, provides an online shopping mall in which employees may purchase from a selection of discounted goods and services. The portal also provides a selection of communications tools and community tools to enhance communication between employer and employee, and cooperation and community among employees. A controlled access administration module allows an Administrator, typically a human resources representative, to manage the various services and tools and to publish information at the company and group level. The portal application allows a portal to be deployed very rapidly, using a configuration tool that creates a logically separate, virtual portal space, defines content for the portal, defines target groups within an employee population, and customizes content and services to the target groups according to rules specified by the employer.
