Best practices seminar: "Don’t be Paralyzed, be Harmonized! Oracle HCM Cloud as a Catalyst to Transform HR"

Abstract: An opportunity to completely transform the way HR supports an organization only comes around once every decade or more (Thankfully!). Stantec, a large global engineering firm that had grown exponentially through acquisition, has seized the opportunity after subscribing to Oracle HCM Cloud. Embracing its consulting partner Baker Tilly’s recommendation to leverage this move as a catalyst for change, the company began the implementation with a "Harmonize" phase to drive alignment on the project and to clearly define “Global Common Models” for its key HR processes – the perfect platform from which to eventually launch the implementation, with clearly defined scope, priorities, timelines, and expectations and measures of success. Stantec is now reaping the benefits of “Harmonized” processes, modern technology, and positive business outcomes.
