I’ve mentioned the IKEA BPO deal a couple of times in the past, and commented on Human Capitalist and systematicHR about ADP but today the press release came out, officially announcing the deal. I got this from Phillip Booth, the guy from the SAP BPO team that runs the ADP relationship. (see below for the release)
1. this is a deal for 50 countries
2. It is for all core HR processes
3. Single global platform
4. Clean, standardised implementation
Also, see the momentum for GlobalView generally 500,000 employees, over 50 companies.
Albert Martens from IKEA spoke at the SAP HR Best Practice meeting that I organised last month, and has a very clear view how he sees standardisation and best practice fit together. IKEA is a fascinating business. I had a peripheral involvement in the deal, and I’ll hopefully be staying close to this one as it is implemented. I will learn lots.
