Business story

The organization
The challenge

The mailmen do not own a bpost email-adres, so they don't have acces to the ICT network. When they have HR related questions, they have to call to the HR-helpdesk. These question can go from "Help, i've been bitten by a dog" to "Which form do I need to fill in for the repayment of my train ticket?". Taken into consideration that Bpost has around 30.000 employees, it means the phone is constantly ringing. To lessen the workload for the callcenter employees, they searched for an online solution.  

The solution

B-post was searching for a self-service online HR-portal where employees could perform HR-related tasks. This a positive effect on the productivity of the HR department.  RedTree designed an Liferay portal, accesble for all mailmen.

The portal isn't only designed for the mailmen, it also provides soms functionalities for the management. 

  • HR dashboard to check the wage evolution of the team. 
  • Calendar where the management can consult the team schedule
  • Staff of the central services can consult their outstanding leave.
