Cosmetics group L’OCCITANE has selected SAP SuccessFactors solutions to deliver digital HR transformation across its global operations, which includes 3000 retail outlets in 90 countries.
With the implementation, L’OCCITANE has installed an HR platform consistent across the globe, which will provide insights into its retail operations, improve standardisation and efficiency of HR processes, reduce administration of core HR processes and provide one user experience for all employees.
“We chose SAP SuccessFactors solutions to help us simplify and streamline our HR operations,” said Xavier Meulemens, director of total rewards and HRIS, L’OCCITANE International.
“As a global company committed to growth, effectively attracting and engaging a diverse workforce are paramount to our continued success. With SAP SuccessFactors solutions, we’re equipped to better manage a flexible and changing workforce across different geographies and cultures, while also increasing transparency and efficiency.”
A key challenge for the group is aligning different organisational areas within one global structure, which has been addressed with the deployment of SuccessFactors Employee Central and SuccessFactors Recruiting solutions internationally. L’OCCITANE’s store employees, managers, HR and corporate office all benefit from having direct access to employee data, and all candidates now access the same streamlined application process that is consistent throughout the company’s global operations.
“The retail industry is one of the most competitive industries around,” SAP SuccessFactors president Greg Tomb said.
“L’OCCITANE Group recognises that investing in a differentiated and digitalised experience for employees today is a strong investment in the company’s future. We’re excited to partner with this leading natural cosmetics group to tell its story about how its people are at the center of its digital business transformation, and how SAP SuccessFactors solutions uniquely support the company’s objectives. Seeing how an industry leader like L’OCCITANE is addressing the realities of today’s global business imperatives can help others better understand what people-focused transformation can look like for their organisations.”
