Merged 14 payroll accounts into one system
Challenges

After several acquisitions, Laird had accumulated 10 payroll service bureau accounts and federal employer identification numbers (FEINs). Operating in 14 countries, the company was also using disparate systems and databases to store HCM information in different formats—creating significant reporting and data integrity issues. The company was forced to staff up its HR team to manage the expanding workload.

Solutions

• Centralized data for the company’s multinational employee population.

• Executive dashboards deliver strategic metrics on global workforce in about 10 seconds.

Results
• Reporting is easier, faster, and more accurate.

• Reduced headcount by several FTEs through attrition.
