Kelly Services’ Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, today announced a partnership with Cezanne whereby the company will pilot its Human Resource Information System within Kelly’s EMEA headquarters. Cezanne is a global HR and talent management software company headquartered in the United Kingdom.
Until recently, Kelly’s operations in EMEA have been using a myriad of systems to record and manage employee data “As Kelly’s operations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa are organised by practice and geography, we have a need for one system to store and analyse HR data effectively,” said Giovanni Marangio, Vice President, Human Resources for Kelly’s EMEA Region.
The Cezanne OnDemand solution appealed because of its ability to host all employee data on one central system, making it much easier to keep information current while providing useful metrics for the HR team. The self-service element, which allows employees to log in and update their personal and career information, is another key advantage as it significantly reduces administration time.
Kelly Services already manages many of its business operations ‘in the cloud’ so could immediately experience the benefits of a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution such as Cezanne OnDemand. With SaaS, there is no need for companies to continually invest in their own hardware or software or to install updates. Users simply log on via a secure Internet server and have immediate access to the latest version of the system from wherever they are located.
“We have opted for a gradual implementation,” said Marangio. “We are putting the foundations in place. Once we have finished cascading it to the target employees in a few months time, we will investigate incorporating more of the advance features to strengthen Kelly’s internal system.”
