PZ Cussons Visualizes HR Data, Finds Its Lost Orphans, Addresses Business Continuity Using OrgPlus EnterpriseThursday, April 7th, 2011
OrgPlus Enterprise now enables HR managers at PZ Cussons, makers of well-known UK brands Imperial Leather, Morning Fresh and other personal hygiene and household products, to audit and validate its data accuracy, ensuring the right staff are shown reporting to the right person.
In fact, visual charts have helped HR identify “orphans” — those individuals shown as not reporting to anyone — and reduce those incidences from 20% to just 2%.
“We wanted to be able to display our organization in visual charts, not just for the managers and the HR team, but also to provide an overview for employees across the organization,” says Sally Knill, Global Reward Director for PZ Cussons, a 4,000-strong global enterprise that operates in Europe, Asia and Africa.
“OrgPlus exactly met our requirements, both for charting and for HR modeling, talent and succession planning. It gives us the flexibility to change things easily and offers excellent value for money. The transparency and visibility of the organization that it gives us is fantastic.”
PC Cussons adopted OrgPlus Enterprise based on a recommendation from Oracle, whose Oracle On Demand HR solution populates HR data in OrgPlus Enterprise.
Down the road, PZ Cussons is also implementing Blueprint, our interactive modeling module for OrgPlus Enterprise, to help plan acquisitions and merger activity. Further, at a strategic level, PZ plans to use OrgPlus Enterprise to develop succession and talent management plans to address business continuity risks.
