Sidel selects Talentia Software to manage international workforce


The selection of a new global HR system will enable Sidel, the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging, to streamline and automate its key processes. Human Capital Management (HCM) software is being provided by Talentia Software, the award-winning supplier of business management solutions, and will be used throughout the organisation on an international scale to reduce the administrative workload for HR and involve managers more effectively during vital processes including performance management.

A long-established company, Sidel has worked closely with food and beverage companies for over 100 years, providing packaging on a worldwide scale. The company made the decision to invest in a Human Resources Information System (HRIS) after identifying the need to reduce administration, increase HR automation and improve the autonomy of managers and employees during HR tasks. A key factor in the decision-making process for Sidel was also the availability of self-service functionality for employees and managers.

 

“Employee and manager self-service, particularly for the performance appraisal process, was an important requirement for us,” states Adèle Rees, HRIS Manager at Sidel. “We want to empower employees and encourage greater involvement from them and their managers in key HR processes and throughout performance management. Automating these processes will also help lessen the administrative burden on our HR department.”

 

Sidel employs more than 3,400 people across 30 countries and five continents, with HR operating locally in all countries. Adèle Rees adds, “It was imperative that the HR system we implemented was available in multiple currencies and languages including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. As a truly international solution, Talentia HCM provides all of the currencies and languages we require.”

 

Talentia HCM offers numerous user profiles and extensive workflow functionality to effectively automate key HR processes and facilitate greater involvement from both employees and managers. Hundreds of organisations worldwide have chosen HCM software solutions from Talentia Software.

 

“Through the provision of a single, consistent source of HR data, our Human Capital Management solution helps businesses to effectively manage, engage, motivate, develop and retain their people,” states Julie Windsor, Managing Director at Talentia Software UK. “We are delighted that Sidel has chosen to implement our HR and talent management software, and will be working closely alongside the business to enable the realisation of a sizeable return on investment from this HR technology.”
