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 and 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 direct inquiries to the HR team, allowing your department to work on strategic talent management initiatives
  • Chat real-time with employees to increase employee engagement
  • Quickly get important and wanted information to employees
  • Receive employee feedback, know what they know
  • Configure menus, landing pages, and page footers – brand 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, Open and Closed Questions, and Banners.

Your employees will see what you want them to see and get answers to their questions in real-time.

Published Knowledge Base with Instant Search


Employees are able to access Knowledge Articles any time, anywhere based on the common requests published to the Portal. These answers 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.

Enrich your employee experience by allowing employees to search and find solutions providing the value and engagement they want.

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.

Additionally, all chat conversations are recorded for documentation and review – capturing the conversation trail and providing opportunity to audit responses and increase HR performance.

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.

Giving employees the opportunity to manage their own HR experience parallels today’s consumer experience – allowing them to access what we want and need when they want and need it.

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.

Trigger alerts keep your department apprised of response times and resolutions. Your employees will be happier and more engaged because they have been listened to, because they have been heard.



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.

If you have any questions about configuration vs. customization, we encourage you to check out this blog which also includes a quick, on-demand conversation about this very topic.
