London: BAE Systems, the global defence and security company, has asked Logica to provide multi-process HR Outsourcing Services for its employees in the UK, as part of a six year deal, secured in collaboration with Oracle.
Logica will design, build and run a transformed HR service for BAE Systems that directly supports the future requirements of its business. This service will be based on Logica's Dynamic HRO offering and harnesses Oracle's PeopleSoft Human Capital Management and Oracle E-Business Suite Payroll to maximise performance improvements. Logica says that by adopting its innovative approaches to supplier ecosystem collaboration, advanced analytics and business benefit realisation, BAE Systems will accelerate the development of its enhanced strategic HR capability.
Logica will work in partnership with BAE Systems to support business priorities which include organisational effectiveness, human capital insights, employee engagement and performance, service efficiency and workforce optimisation. These focus areas will enable BAE Systems to reduce operational costs and focus on future growth.
Haydn Clulow, HR Director, Transformation, BAE Systems said, "We recognise that our business needs both agility and flexibility if it is to respond successfully to our changing market landscape. We are pleased to have Logica on board and see them as a key partner in our drive to build the people management capability that will enable our future success."
Gary Bullard, President of Logica in the UK said, "Changing workforce demographics, increased economic pressures and evolving business priorities are just some of the factors that HR teams must analyse and respond to. Our partnership with BAE Systems will deliver an HR service that is dynamic and able to support them in making good business decisions.
"Employee performance and appropriate resourcing can mean the difference between success and failure so HR needs to be at the top of any organisation's priorities. Logica has helped a lot of businesses to make the most of market opportunities through the development of systems, processes and technology, but we know that people, and their good management are the vital component of any successful business."
The contract with BAE Systems builds on Logica's experience of delivering transformational HR systems for organisations across Europe including KPN, the Dutch telecoms company. Logica offers an international HR blended delivery network of over 2,000 experienced HR consultants.
