The client employs approximately 102,000 people across over 100 countries, does business in more than 130 countries, and reported annual revenues in excess of €20 billion in 2017.

Despite being a global leader in the field of telecommunications information technology, and consumer electronics, the client had a diverse employee structure and HR processes at almost every business location. There was no standard hierarchy in terms of HR processes, pay grades lacked a unified structure or a structured payroll process as HCM tools varied from country to country. There were disparities in salary structures, components as well.

Working at a global powerhouse, has its fair share of perks as well as handicaps. One such handicap was the high attrition rate of HR personnel due to the challenging nature of getting the best talent on boarded as well as keep them engaged while performing all HR related tasks.

Due to frequent changes in HR personnel, payroll processing would suffer due to the different individual styles of payroll calculations of the HR person. This led to discrepancies in payroll structures across business entities. There was no standard process to review or process payroll and consolidate the data and any one person couldn’t take stock of employee remuneration if needed due to the high number of variables introduced by different HR personnel at different locations.
