  8. 8. Increase productivity with a self-service portal Create smooth and efficient human resources processes that give employees easy to use tools Your industry requires safety and skill-based certifications for a large percentage of your field employees. Traditionally, a lot of time was spent tracking and maintaining the certification status of individual employees. By using a SharePoint self-service HR portal, employees and managers can view certification, license, and training requirements and renewals assigned to them. Employees increasingly expect more integrated digital interactions with HR. Society for Human Resource Management, “Future Insights”
  9. 9. Retailer uses SharePoint internal portal to engage diverse workforce Objectives Tactics Results • Engage a diverse workforce and business units more efficiently and for less cost. • Improve key performance indicators. • Comply with new legislation around benefits. Deploy SharePoint collaboration platform to improve processes and communications among 8,000 staff in the United Kingdom. Harrods expects to save around £75,000 a year because fewer document and information updates need distribution using print media. “The system offers robust security for regulatory compliance, enhances communication, and is saving £75,000 (US $120,000) a year in print costs.” – Harrods case study

Give employees the skills they need to compete Build an inclusive, service-oriented human resources organization that provides learning to a diverse, multi-generational workforce Globalization has increased the percentage of your employees that are dispersed across multiple geographies, time zones, and languages. Traditional classroom and online training has become increasingly less effective and harder to administer. A unified SharePoint learning management portal can enable flexible distance learning with personalized study plans, learning through search, and on-demand learning. Only 18% of workforce training programs raise skills from “deficient” to “adequate.” Future Work Skills 2020
  11. 11. Modernize your communications to improve reach Extend workforce productivity to everyone in your organization Your HR department supports a community of employees based in the field. Traditionally, this has meant sending paperbased benefits and healthcare packages via printed mail. With the rising costs of printing and shipping, you want to deliver this information via the existing company portal. The Office 365 collaboration and messaging tools can extend your HR portal’s reach to workers who don’t regularly have access to a company computer. The Hay Group found that offices with more engaged employees were up to 43% more productive.

  14. 14. Tie talent strategies to corporate strategies Attract and hire the right people for the right jobs, with diversity and inclusion Due to a competitive threat, your organization has decided to expand into a new market and you need to recruit for a multitude of new positions with specialized skills. The HR team uses an automated Microsoft Dynamics CRM lead and prospect management system to source candidates and identify specialized talent inside or outside the organization. Hiring managers can use these tools for their integrated interview scheduling and candidate portal to quickly capture, summarize, and exchange feedback and accelerate the hiring decision. In 2012, 69% of employers reported being adversely affected by a bad hire. Source: CareerBuilder, 2012

Architecture firm expands collaboration capabilities to support global workforce Objectives Tactics Results • Retain and motivate talented young workers. • Provide an attractive workspace and workstyle. • Work and collaborate remotely. Deploy SharePoint 2013 to take advantage of cloud, mobility, and social features. “Being able to have social conversations in a specific context, within a site, within a community, is key for boosting productivity.” Felicity McNish Global Knowledge Manager “You will work in collaborative, diverse teams that are not afraid to take risks. We share ideas, develop and inspire each other and together drive the direction and approach to our work.” – Woods Bagot Career Guide
  16. 16. Translate workforce data into insight Use data to drive strategic planning and go beyond “what happened” to predicting “what will be” Your self-service Excel analysis shows that over the last several years, your company has experienced a significant increase in undesirable turnover. You evaluate the factors associated with this turnover and generate a report that shows how salary, educational level, skills, or length of service contribute to the turnover. Using this information, you can accurately anticipate changes and adopt plans to prevent them from leaving, and/or proactively mitigate the impact of those departures. HR is clamoring for help with actionable HR metrics, both operational and strategic. IDC Marketscape: WW HR BOP 2012 Analysis
  17. 17. Talent service hosts web application globally on highly scalable Windows Azure platform Objectives Tactics Results • Help customers identify most common success attributes. • Access data on 30 million individual career profiles. • Deploy service quickly around the world. Build a unique search engine that is hosted on highly scalable but cost-effective Windows Azure server infrastructure. With no hardware costs, minimal support, and easy scalability, PageUp People rapidly launched its service in Australia and abroad. “We simply didn’t have the resources to create and support new IT infrastructure at our many client locations around the world,” he says. “We needed an easy-to-scale, low-maintenance solution in Australia that we could replicate abroad.” – Robert Hill, Vice President, Solutions Engineering
  18. 18. Optimize your human capital investments Find the right employees in the right markets around the world with specialized skills needed for your business After analyzing attrition and demographics using Microsoft Dynamics tools, you discover that a significant percentage of workers with specialized skills would retire in the next few years. With this knowledge, you quickly identify "skill gaps" between the current and future workforce and initiate proper workforce planning. The insight from this skills forecast can help you proactively shift the human capital strategies, preventing future operational risk. 43% of respondents said human capital will be the biggest investment over the next 10 years. IDC, WW Human Capital Management Applications, 2012-16 Forecast

The human resources department is faced with the daunting task of quickly merging the two cultures. Your IT department delivers a Yammer social collaboration platform that transcends organizational and geographical silos―and embraces mobile workers.
