Release 5 rexx HR offers a comprehensive ESN module for the employee portal. Employees are able to post contributions in a “stream” – similar to the Facebook or Xing newsfeed. They can report that they won a new customer or have successfully concluded a project – to enhance transparency and communications throughout the entire company.
rexx ESN represents a quantum leap forward in promoting knowledge management within the company. The software supports specialist and management staff in utilising the know-how of colleagues, for example, by asking questions in the stream. The rexx HR Blog module extends these possibilities – for example, company regulations, specialist subjects or projects can be published and discussed in blogs or group reports. Comprehensive rights management options ensure that information is secure at all times.
rexx ESN also promotes social interaction and thus employee loyalty. After-work activities can be planned or a housing market can be set up in the group areas. Employee branding can be intensified in ESN through reports on company parties, awards or activities related to corporate social responsibility.
ESN is particularly interesting for geographically distributed companies with several sites or with field staff. All employees can get involved in current company topics digitally and can also carry out actions themselves. The digital transparency created by ESN promotes employee loyalty and makes it easier for new colleagues to find their way around the company (onboarding) and quickly become integrated.
Rexx Self-Service functions, such as digital applications for leave and absences, time management or information on account balances, are seamlessly integrated into ESN. This not only creates added value for the employee but also provides a “soft transition” into the ESN.
This combination of employee portal and social network is one of the main features that makes rexx ESN stand out from other providers. Often social networks in companies fail to make the necessary transition into the company culture through transparency and the willingness to engage in dialogue. The entry through rexx Self-Service – found by employees and the management staff to be a very useful function – makes this transition much easier.
