CHRISTUS Health uses ServiceNow to help employees just hours after Hurricane Harvey


Hurricane Harvey damage estimates


Of Houston was under water


Forced from their homes

In the summer of 2017, Hurricane Harvey slammed into SE Texas. Within 24 hours, CHRISTUS set up its ServiceNow® HR Service Delivery portal to allow employees to easily donate money to a relief fund and even to donate their paid time off hours to fellow staff members affected by the storm.

Not just any portal in a storm    

Natural disasters randomly destroy and create havoc whenever and wherever, without a concern for human life and activity. When huge and devastating events occur, there’s frustratingly little mortals can do but hunker down and hope for the best.

However, it’s during the aftermath when the best of humankind appears—when people come to the aid of their family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. In these times, most everyone focuses on what’s important: saving lives and property, and helping victims get back on their feet again.

In the late summer of 2017, when Hurricane Harvey slammed into Corpus Christi, Houston, and Beaumont, Texas and the surrounding areas, some lost their lives, many suffered physical injuries, and thousands experienced billions of dollars in damages to their property and personal possessions.

Hurricane Harvey relief assistance
Clearly, relief assistance was desperately needed. CHRISTUS Health answered the call. CHRISTUS Health is a healthcare organization with 45,000 employees spread across eight U.S. regions as well as Latin America. It has hospitals throughout Texas and Louisiana, so the organization’s leaders knew many employees as well as their patients and patients’ families were going to need assistance.

This is an extraordinary example of how CHRISTUS, using ServiceNow, was able to provide an exceptional employee experience and support their staff through this tough time.

Creating a relief fund
Within 24 hours, CHRISTUS was able to set up its ServiceNow® HR Service Delivery portal with electronic forms that allowed employees across their organization to donate money to a relief fund and even to donate their PTO (paid time off) hours to fellow staff members affected by the storm.  Forms were also developed for employees to request assistance from these programs.

Because mobile access is built right into the HR portal, employees in hard‑hit areas could simply reach for their phones and apply for assistance from these programs. This capability was central to the success of the CHRISTUS relief effort because many of those in the areas affected by the hurricane did not have access to a computer.

Using the portal to send messages
“We have also been able to use the portal as a way to regularly update and send messages to associates throughout the company,” said Debbie Arnold, Vice President of Human Resource Operations at CHRISTUS Health.

CHRISTUS has seen an ROI of $9 million over a three‑year period.

Providing a next-generation employee experience
“This is an extraordinary example of how CHRISTUS, using ServiceNow, was able to provide an exceptional employee experience and support their staff through this tough time. We’re proud that ServiceNow technology was used to help those affected by the hurricane, even if it was only in one small way,” said Mike Vilimek, ServiceNow Director of Product Marketing, Human Resources Products.

CHRISTUS Health has been a ServiceNow customer since 2013 and since implementation has centralized HR processes, reduced administrative tasks, and significantly improved the employee service experience with a next-generation experience.

With ServiceNow HR Service Delivery, CHRISTUS Health transitioned from manually handling routine HR inquiries—in person, via email, and over the phone—to a self‑service portal and an automated HR service delivery process. By increasing HR productivity and delivering more strategic value to their business partners, CHRISTUS has seen an ROI of $9 million over a three‑year period according to a third‑party case study.
