Key Takeaways - One Company, One HR: Reflection on our Transform

Christina Yue, Customer Learning Manager |


Combining a variety of disconnected and customized HR systems can be a daunting task for any company, much less a company undergoing a major merger. However, in 2015 XL Catlin successfully moved from old, disjointed processes to one fully consolidated system. Today, two years into the new system, Vice President and IT Executive Margaret Patrick recalls lessons from the four month journey to “one company, one HR.”


XL Catlin utilized Oracle HCM Cloud and Taleo to build its new system. Successful initial implementation and ongoing improvement provides encouragement to other firms considering a major overhaul of systems. HR transformation is possible.


With commitment to continuous training for all HR portal users, strong relationships with the Oracle team and external owners (e.g. benefits providers), dedicated champions within your organization, piloted features with focus groups, simple security model design and continual awareness of best practices, your company can also experience a better tomorrow.
