Hr.macys.net/insite is Macy’s Inc. associates’ personal information resource. You notice that Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, as a corporate entity, has two major types of employee resources online. The first type of employee resources online is that of those we may term as being public resources. Those are carried on the site employeeconnection.net. There, we have pages bearing public information on employee benefits, the forms that Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s employees need to download and fill in, communication resources and so on. None of these contain private information pertaining to anybody, so they are all publicly available. The second type of employee resources online (for Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s) is that of private resources. Those are the ones accessible through hr.macys.net/insite and https://hr.macys.net/iip. They touch on things like work schedules, benefits and paychecks.
The structure of the webpage at hr.macys.net/insite
Macys Insite is designed to be an ultra-simple webpage. At the very top of the page, on the left hand side, there is a text graphic, to inform you that you are at in-site. At the very top, on the right hand side, there is a login button, which you need to click on, so as to sign in to hr.macys.net/insite. Just below that is a thin, reddish ribbon running all the way horizontally, and in it, you find links to the pages where you can get information on site requirements and login help respectively.
In the main body of the webpage of the Macys Insite, you find (on the left hand side), a vertical menu, with four items, namely: welcome, in the press, news at in-site and in-site disclosure. The other bigger portion of the main body is taken up by a graphic of an apparently serene lady, who is presumably a Macy’s Inc. employee. In this graphic is a text warmly welcoming you to the personal information resource.
About the links at hr.macys.net/insite
There are two major types of links at the Insite page, namely:
- Links that direct to other pages: here, we are looking at the ‘site requirements’ link and the ‘sign in help’ link. The login button too leads to another page: namely, the actual login page.
- Links that lead to small pop-ups: for instance, upon clicking on the ‘in the press’ link or the ‘news at in-site’ link, small pop-ups appear, without loading any new pages. The in-site disclosure pop-up is basically a terms and conditions pop-up, whereas the ‘in the press’ popup carries headlines and small write-ups.
