Cisco Web service shifts job transfer approval

Internet
solutions company Cisco has pioneered an e-HR service that allows staff and
managers to agree job transfers without involving the HR department.

The
e-HR service, called HR Connection, will give Cisco employees in Asia, Europe
and the US the chance to ask questions on HR policies and provide information
on Cisco’s HR web-based applications.

Launched
three months ago, the web-based application, known as Café Mocha, gives
employees and line managers the opportunity to agree job transactions, pay
changes and terminations over the Web. All these transactions require HR
involvement apart from job transfers.

Jean-Paul
Verdu, Cisco’s HR director of world-wide operations said, “This new HR service
will improve the delivery of services in HR and cut down on paperwork.”

Verdu
said, “These web-based applications encourage self-reliance of employees and
line managers which is part of our company’s philosophy. It improves the speed
and efficiency of the HR function as well.”

Cisco
employs 40,000 people worldwide and has a market capitalisation of $300bn.
