Before presenting the business case for the digital HR transformation project, HR stakeholders from across the group had to be convinced of the business benefits. Initially, there was resistance. Why?
DCC has grown largely through mergers and acquisitions. Each company continued to operate independently. As a result, each had its own HR platform, payroll provider and processes for managing employee lifecycles.
Exertis, for example, completed a major HR and payroll transformation project in 2015. Working with Alight, it implemented a hybrid HR platform combining SAP SuccessFactors with Alight’s own payroll platform.
In 2016, DCC Energy worked with Alight to deliver SuccessFactors Performance and Goals as well as Succession Planning.
A demonstration of the impact integrated people data could have on HR team success, plus the added value this would bring to the group, not just to HR processes, convinced the HR leads that SAP SuccessFactors was the direction to take.
