Global HR Continuity in a Local World

Authored by: Ann Blakely

Baker Tilly Shares HCM Thought Leadership at Oracle OpenWorld.

Human Capital Services practice leader, Ann Blakely, leads this panel discussion on how thinking globally but acting locally is a key success factor for today's multinational companies, especially when it comes to their HR initiatives. The esteemed panel of Baker Tilly clients, comprised of CHRO executives from Medtronic, Quad Graphics and Willis Towers Watson, share how they brought together the disparate HR needs of their global organizations through development of global common model / common processes while leveraging Oracle’s HCM Cloud solutions and maintaining flexibility to accommodate future acquisitions and changing global legislation and regulation. 

The discussion also reveals:

  • What drove/is driving their transformation (need)
  • HR Shared services in a global organization - to be or not to be
  • Autonomy - how much do you give geographies/business units to define their own processes
  • Deployment tactics
  • Lessons learned
