Eight key takeaways: Esterline Technologies goes where they have never gone before

Christina Yue, Customer Learning Manager |

 

How do you effectively implement a new HR system across a global company made up of 13,000 employees living in 19 countries, working in 10 different time zones, speaking eight standard languages and operating as 100+ legal entities?

 

This was the challenge for Esterline Technologies’ Senior Director of HR Operations, Shahbaz Alibaig, as his superiors envisioned one HR. With a lofty goal before him, Shahbaz enlisted the help of HCM World.

 

Today, his company boasts the successful implementation of five modules (profile management, talent review, performance management, goal management and succession management) and plan to add an additional two modules (Recruiting and Onboarding and Learn) in the following year.

 

Now, looking back, Shahbaz defines eight best practices for swapping to one HR system:

  1. Know your objectives and set realistic expectations early
  2. Watch scope creep
  3. Follow a governance model
  4. Focus on change management
  5. Communicate
  6. Manage detractors
  7. Plan for integrations
  8. Plan for patches and releases
