Pathway Vet Alliance: Thriving in the cloud with Alight and Workday
Sodexo decided to align the working practices of its four subsidiary companies at the end of the 1990s. It wanted to update its systems before the year 2000, so it worked with Alight (then called NGA HR) to find a solution that best fit the needs of the business and its people.
Sodexo’s payroll in France is particularly complex. This is as a result of the diverse employment statutes and contracts. Some of these complexities consist of:
The initial payroll system project was based on SAP and launched in 1999. With the year 2000 quickly approaching as a deadline, Sodexo had to work ambitiously to reach this goal and optimized its payroll over the subsequent two years. During this initial stage, Sodexo’s priority was to guarantee the internal maintenance of the application.
During the upgrade of its SAP system to improve productivity and quality, the organization began a second phase in the strategy to:
There were several objectives set by Sodexo:
Sodexo found itself at a crossroads with its payroll: to continue developing and maintaining its HR/payroll applications internally, or outsource payroll processing and change management to a model already in use with specific employee groups (China, Asia-PAC, etc.) They ultimately decided to outsource with Alight (legacy NGA HR) for its rapid ROI and straightforward quantification. The results have simplified payroll processes for Sodexo as they transferred their data and systems to Alight’s external platform. Routine, time-consuming tasks were delegated to the Alight team, freeing up time for Sodexo employees to focus on more value-added work.
Sodexo also observed additional benefits after implementing Alight’s HR solutions, including:
After Sodexo had seen the successful implementation of Alight’s solutions for its HR challenges, it decided to pursue the development and optimization of its HR/payroll systems by utilizing its partnership with SAP and Alight. Projects currently in progress include:
An initial – and successful – ASP test has already been carried out with Sodexo in the Netherlands (6,000 salaries) and Sodexo’s German employee population has already undergone full outsourcing (5,000 salaries).
