The Intercontinental Hotels Group has launched a global intranet for employees spread across six corporate offices and 614 hotels in the Europe, Middle Easte and Africa (EMEA) regions.
The global project, the first of its kind for for the group, will allow a personalised view for each employee, with the home page opening as their individual hotel or corporate department.
All employees will have access to ‘myHR’ an area where they can look at their training and development needs, competency and self development, book themselves on to training courses, and access and submit holiday forms and expenses claims.
David House, senior vice-president for global HR, said: “The new system will facilitate collaboration and knowledge-sharing across all departments, brands and regions.
“The EMEA intranet is the first step towards a much needed worldwide portal environment for the entire company.”
The intranet is based on a content management system from Mediasurface and the software tool Morello.
