model for employment conditions. With this internal
web application you can obtain a bicycle, a refund
on your commuting costs, extra holidays or trade
unused holidays for money. The application also
calculates the tax benefit that you enjoy as part of
the options you select. The lunch time meeting will

Human Resources department of the UT. Then we would
go through the web application, explaining each step
and its significance.
