Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, ISS A/S (International Service System) is a global facility services company founded in 1901. One of the world’s top 20-largest employers, its 550,000 people, keep companies around the world running with a full complement of services, including cleaning, support, property, cater- ing, security, workplace, and facilities management.
Meeting the stringent requirements of financial customers.
Governance and security don’t pertain to just ISS’s website operations; they are omnipresent requirements of its overall business. For example, ISS works with companies in a wide range of industries, some of which are governed by strict regulations; banking and numerous other industries must follow specific operational procedures to demonstrate regulatory compliance. Financial companies require on-site third-party personnel, such as cleaning, security, and facilities management personnel, to have clean criminal records. It’s a complex task since these workers must not just pass an initial security screening, but also affirm their crime-free status periodically. Workers in other industries must frequently document their compliance with various security, training, and related requirements.
ISS, therefore, counts on the availability and performance of its human resources (HR) compliance website to allow employees to verify submit documents and answer questions around the world, around the clock. The personal information provided by employees is highly sensitive and must be protected with robust security measures. By running its HR compliance website on Azure Blueprint for Sitecore— just one of numerous internal and external web properties ISS operates on the reference architecture—the company achieves consistent global governance and security standards, a must-have in demonstrating regulatory rigor to its financial customers.
