In the fiercely competitive energy sector, things change fast. In 2016, Uniper was spun off from energy supplier E.on. They had to develop both their HR systems and processes.
As a result, Uniper turned to NGA HR to support them. After breaking away from E.ON, Uniper took the opportunity to develop its own employee-centric “HR for the future” strategy.
Increased consumer interest in sustainability and a wave of new market entrants are some of the big challenges energy companies face today. In order to succeed, Uniper SE requires a highly skilled workforce both now and in the future.
However, eager to move all core business processes to the cloud, the company migrated its on-premise SAP® ERP Human Capital Management solution to the SAP SuccessFactors® Employee Central solution. This takes advantage of the SAP SuccessFactors solution for managed payroll by NGA HR.
Subsequently, the system change meant that Uniper could provide new functionality. Digital self service, mobile access and chatbot technology were some examples of the improvements. This improved employee experience and in turn boosted employee engagement.
Critically, SAP SuccessFactors supports data-driven decision-making. Consequently, Uniper can make smarter strategic plans. This ensures it has the right people with the right skills at the right time to stay competitive.
To keep ahead of the competition in the high-pressure energy sector, Uniper is always on the lookout for new ways to support staff members in their day-to-day work. To streamline essential HR services, the company is moving from the on-premise SAP® ERP Human Capital Management solution to SAP SuccessFactors® solutions. It is digitalizing, modernizing, and simplifying HR with intuitive self-service, mobile, and artificial intelligence features. With SAP SuccessFactors solutions, Uniper can now make data-driven strategic decisions to stay innovative and competitive.
