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 paper we will present the results of our real-world experience building a web-enabled work- flow system for managing employee life-cycle process instances in the context big Spanish telecommunications company.
