Abstract

Employee life-cycle processes management (hiring new employees, changing their conditions, and dismissing them) is a critical task that has a big impact in HR Information Systems. If these processes are not handled correctly the consistency of HR databases is compromised. In many cases (especially in small and mid-size business) these processes are implemented using semi-manual procedures based on unstructured information. In this chapter the authors will present the results of our real-world experience building a Web-enabled workflow system for managing employee life-cycle process instances in the context big Spanish telecommunications company.

Introduction

Employee life-cycle management is a critical task that affects all companies without regard of their size and business. These processes include hiring new employees, changing working conditions (promotion, demotions, change of cost centre, changes in the compensation package, change of function, change of organizational unit, etc.) and dismissals (end of relationship). In this paper we will present our real-world experience building a web-enabled workflow system for managing employee life-cycle process instances in a big Spanish telecommunications company. In the first section we will present ONO, our company, in order to set the organizational context. In the second section we will present the problem that we faced and set the requirements for building a tool to solve it. In the third section the web-enabled workflow system is presented, making special focus on the agile approach used to build it and how the previously stated requirements are met. Finally we will offer some conclusions and future lines of work
