Event Calendar / Going Global with HR Systems: Looking back on a 10 year journey
Details & Time Frame
Going Global with HR Systems: Looking back on a 10 year journey
Johnson Controls is a global company of 150k people worldwide that had a decentralized and disparate landscape of HR Information Management Systems 10 years ago. In 2002, the company decided to ‘start to go global’ in the area of HR Systems. Join us as we review the past 10 years of system implementation experiences and pick up some tips about what worked well in an international and global environment as we implemented core HR, a recruiting system, learning management system, and more!

We’ll review how this large multi-national approached the challenges and the hurdles, along with the wins and surprises encountered along the way. We’ll discuss the systems landscape and topics like language, data privacy, works councils and training as they relate to system implementation and planning. We’ll look at cultural expectations for the systems and how they differ, as well as some of the key ‘gotchas’ that were learning experiences. In addition, we’ll look at support and staffing needs where both HR and IT are involved around the world, and how system changes and enhancements occur in two core instances. We’ll look at a ‘globalization vs. localization’ approach, and how both are important and relevant topics. Finally, we’ll look forward to the next steps of the journey, and how we’re looking at HR Transformation from a systems perspective, and what we’re planning to do next.

Whether you’re only beginning to think about going global in the future or wondering how a large company manages it, this session is for you. It will provide a summary of 10 years of experience and lessons learned in global HR Systems implementation and support.
