Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, Case Study
Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, Company Background and Key Drivers $1 B Materials company Poised for growth opportunities and newer markets Maintains separate systems for HR, Payroll Process includes a mix of Central HR, Divisional HRs and factory supervisors acting as HR agents. Number of Employees–Approx 7700 Key Drivers Aggressive growth Increased employees will require more employees & HR staff (currently 57:1 ratio) Increased attention on cost management-High HR cost per EE ($2,197) Need for quick assimilation and scalability of resources Has disparate systems with delayed processes and now is in favor of a fully integrated HR (and it’s sub components) and Payroll system Need for accurate workforce planning
Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, Current State process Employee Data Management- Data Entry and Record setup
Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, PeopleSoft Best Practice Implementation Employee Data Management- Data Entry and Record setup Security PeopleSoft HRMS Business Address & LDAP Password
Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, PeopleSoft Post Implementation benefits the company achieved thru Best Practice methods Relation with an employee started early on as a self service applicant Integrated PS system provides same information and on-boarding process is cut down The data management burden is not concentrated with HR alone and is distributed. Data Standardization (Job code, Position etc) alone have lessened HR to focus more on value-add processes. Payroll can already process the first check instead of manual entries the first time. Central HR, Divisional HR and factory HR are more aligned with information Reduced calls to Central HR from factory HRs as they have role based access to look upon employees. Shared service calls are often solved by Tier 1 compared to earlier process of transferring Employee calls often.
Norcal OAUG 2007 | January 17, Conclusions With proven best practices and technology enablement we can achieve greater levels of efficiencies and effectiveness. To fully leverage a mature product like PeopleSoft, we need to identify best practice goals to be achieved early on and then configure. Only a holistic Best Practice approach will yield in superior implementation and a lowered TCO.
