Employee Portal

Empower Employees

The Dovetail Employee Portal allows your workforce to either access and leverage HR Knowledge themselves or efficiently interact directly with HR to open a case, as well as track its progress. By providing this choice to employees, you empower them with the ability to get the answers they need, when they need them. The Dovetail Employee Portal enables HR to:

  • Reduce costs while servicing a higher number of employee requests – anytime, anywhere
  • Decrease inquiries sent to HR, allowing your department to work on strategic talent management initiatives
  • Chat with employees to increase real-time employee engagement
  • Quickly get important information to employees
  • Receive employee feedback, know what they know
  • Configure menus, landing pages, and page footers, branding them to match your organization’s look and feel


Portal Homepage

The employee portal homepage is personalized to include a greeting for each user complete with relevant information to foster employee engagement. This welcome screen can include content search, configurable Smart Link Menu and Widgets, Videos, Deep Links, Most Visited Pages and Open and Closed Questions and Banners.

Published Knowledge Base with Instant Search

Employees are able to access Knowledge Articles any time, anywhere with common requests published to the Portal. These can include attached files such as images, videos, tables, and rich text, as well as guiding employees through specific HR processes or downloading documents, as needed.

Live Chat

Chat is live on every page in the Portal, encouraging employee engagement. The chat conversation remains active regardless of where the employee navigates on the Dovetail Employee Portal

Request Creation

When employees cannot find a suitable answer or solution through the published Knowledge Base, they can ask a question through a case. With Dovetail’s simple Portal interface and the ability to attach relevant files, employees play an active role in getting your team everything they need to take on new HR requests.

Request Status and Updates

Once a request is submitted, employees can obtain up-to-date information at the click of a button, as well as update their requests, adding necessary notes or attachments. Employee updates trigger alerts to correct HR team members, allowing for consistent collaboration and communication, regardless of schedules or location.


The Dovetail Employee Portal can be configured to meet the needs of your department and organization. Design the appearance of the Portal to match your corporate brand, and integrate existing Employee & Manager Portals, providing seamless user experiences.
