Day 5 - From Stars to Satellites

Roll out an integrated HR Digital Information System

The goal of our assignment was to merge various HR reporting and processing systems into an integrated digital platform


  • Implement new digital systems without prior thought-through review of HR processes
  • Standardize blindly or stick to old practices
  • Technological challenges versus human learning challenges 
  • Resistance to change 
  • Extensive additional workload during the testing & implementation phases endangering daily activities


  • Create digital super users roles and unlock human potential in digital areas
  • Create interactive common communication platforms (HR Portal/Intranet platforms ) to accompany the change

MILESTONES  - Waypoints

  • Define project streams & lead the transition for the modules : Organizational Management, Compensation & Benefits, Expats Management, Learning, Performance Management, Recruitment & Succession Planning

  • Per project stream : describe the flows, review, optimize & simplify/standardize the above-mentioned HR processes prior to system change 

  • Lead testing & implementation phases

  • Design HR analytics & management reporting

  • During the whole journey : communicate and involve all stakeholders about the change (info roadshows, work groups... )


In the process, we have seized the opportunity of the project to bring added-value on some side business aspects.
