HR departments are embracing the itsme e-signature!

The qualified signature provided by itsme has the same legal value as a handwritten signature. In many countries including Belgium, this type of signature is mandatory for crucial paperwork such as employment contracts. With itsme, you can conveniently and legally sign documents, with just your smartphone.  This perfect combination of legal validity and ease of use is key to why increasingly more companies are using itsme Sign to streamline their HR processes.  

Market leader in consumer and industrial brands Henkel, signs with itsme

One of the companies that discovered the great benefits of signing with itsme® is Henkel, a global leading FMCG manufacturer with brands & technologies in three business areas: Laundry & Home Care, Beauty Care and Adhesive Technologies. They integrated the itsme® signature at the beginning of this year and found immense value in using it for their overall HR administration. 

Our HR department in Belgium uses itsme for secure document signing, including employment contracts. It offers the same value as a wet signature which is legally required for those kinds of agreements. However, itsme goes beyond just employment contracts. It is very convenient for signing various documents and it streamlines our entire HR processes. On top of that, our new hires and employees love its user-friendly interface and the security it offers.
