In HR applications, timesheets or holiday requests need approval by a supervisor. TrustBuilder’s Policy Information Broker can call the HRM API to consult the organization chart and check the hierarchical relationship between the end-user and the supervisor who approves the timesheet or holiday request.
By checking the hierarchical relationship between the two employees in an external database, we can be assured that both employees are still in the same role in their organization. E.g. if the supervisor moves on to another department and can no longer approve or decline holiday requests, this will become clear when TrustBuilder’s Policy Information Broker checks the organization’s hierarchy.
Our Policy Information Broker will consult different external sources based on the role of the user at login. A user may take on different roles in one single HRTech tool. Someone who is an employee in one organization, can also be a contractor to another organization, or CEO of their own company. Policy Information Broker will make sure that the right external source is consulted depending on the respective roles of the user.
