Microsoft’s own human resources (HR) portal - known internally as HRWeb - gets personal, thanks to the modern SharePoint experience in Microsoft 365. Microsoft employees use HRWeb to check on benefits, adjust withholdings, find a specific company policy, and more. I use it to check health benefits, get career guidance, learn about official company holidays, and print out tax info when it's tax season here in the US.
HRWeb is a one-stop shop internal human resources site that serves a variety of important employment information for all 160,000+ employees worldwide.

The full article shares more about the strategy and execution of how Microsoft found just the right fit - plus a little custom code (thanks, SharePoint Framework (SPFx)) - using SharePoint in Microsoft 365 as the right upgrade path HRWeb needed to evolve in the modern, hybrid work environment for all Microsoft employees. The outcome, better user experience, improved site performance, and improved employee search experience looking for HR content now that it is by default within Microsoft Search results.
As a related bonus, we spoke a while back with Kerry Olin (Microsoft CVP, HR Services) and Jay Clem (Microsoft GM, HR Services) about how Microsoft adjusts its practices and technology to improve the employee experience for 160K full-time Microsoft employees around the world - including insights abouth the very same HRWeb. The episode, too, includes introductory thoughts “on the importance of data and insights” from Kathleen Hogan (Microsoft EVP and Chief HR Officer):
