Business Situation

The automotive major’s disparate legacy systems and processes were prolonging the recruitment cycle, negatively impacting productivity. An intelligent end-to-end talent acquisition software was a need of the hour.

Business Challenges

The firm’s disintegrated global people management platforms led to inefficiencies in hiring closures. The existing systems lacked the sophistication to drive multi-layered screenings and assessments.

The ‘as-is’ system’s functional limitations hampered the firm’s growth. The inability of the talent acquisition system (Taleo) to provide compensation breakdown once the offers were rolled out was a major pain point. Manual calculations done by the human resources team led to errors and higher turnaround times.

Birlasoft Solution

Birlasoft upgraded the existing systems with new technologies, deployed new platforms and integrated all the people management applications.

We integrated Taleo and the human resources management system (PeopleSoft). This enabled the system to generate the compensation breakdown and retrieve the compensation structure from upstream platforms. A few user interfaces were deployed to make the solution easy to use.
