The company “Polyus” had a need to create a unified information and communication platform for convenient interaction among employees of all companies within the Group. Previously, Polyus used an out-of-the-box portal built on the Microsoft SharePoint platform. Over time, the portal no longer met the needs of employees, and its functional blocks became outdated. The platform became inconvenient to use and inefficient for the company as a whole. It was decided to create a portal based on the WSS Portal.
6,500 employees from 19 companies of the Polyus Group use WSS Portal.
The portal fosters a collective vision, defines user behavior and includes tools for mass employee notifications. A significant portion of the portal's content is dedicated to company information, providing detailed descriptions of each gold deposit, the company's strategic vision, executive leadership, and an interactive map.
The corporate occupational health and industrial safety management model aims to prevent accidents and other hazardous situations, so the company analyzes all extraordinary incidents. To simplify this process, two coefficients, LTIFR (Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate) and AARK (Accident and Road Incident Rate), are displayed for each employee on the portal.
Since the company has a large number of geographically distributed locations, the portal's homepage features clocks displaying the time in five cities: Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Yakutsk, and Magadan. For each user, depending on their branch affiliation, the relevant time zone is highlighted.
Provides convenient access to internal sections, online services, social features, and more. The employee's affiliation with a specific business unit is taken into account, allowing the portal to provide the user with the most relevant content. The entire portal features a user-friendly search function across all sections.
In large companies, the user profile on the internal portal should address the main questions—the role of employees, how to contact them, and where they are located. For the company "Polyus," we have developed an extended functionality for the profile:
It is possible to express gratitude to employees for their achievements and merits by sending a "Thank you" in the form of points, or to view the statistics of points received.
Polyus has a distributed company structure. WSS-Solutions has implemented a convenient dropdown menu that categorizes employees by companies, departments, and divisions. By entering a person's name, it is possible to find an employee within the overall hierarchy.
A section in the menu called "Documentation" includes a document library and serves as a company repository.
There are online services that simplify the work of HR managers, IT departments, and secretaries. The processes operate based on SharePoint workflows, and can be modified and customized by portal moderators without changing the source code.
