Projekttyp: Information Management
Keywords: Workflow management, Human resources management, E-Administration

The project personETH aims to develop a new web application for the human resources (HR) management at ETH Zurich. The goal is a paperless workflow system that supports the smooth cooperation between the personnel department and staff, supervisors and organization units. Such a system is part of a modern and customer-oriented HR management.
In a first step of the project all HR processes will be analysed and documented in digital form. In a second phase selected processes will be automated with an electronic workflow system. This will help to streamline procedures, to accelerate the workflow, and to eliminate errors.
Staff with responsibility for research and teaching can best concentrate on their tasks when they receive efficient administrative support. By streamlining their workflows the administrative units can better meet the needs of academic staff. Electronic means, especially platform-independent web applications, can significantly support this process. A virtual campus needs to be supported by a virtual administration: personETH is a first step in this direction.
