Works Applications Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer: Masayuki Makino; hereinafter "WAP"), today announced that Sodick Corporation will be implementing its HCM & Payroll, Workforce Self-Service, and Attendance Management systems to support its global HR operations.
Costs for Additional Configurations Burdens HR Operations
Sodick is the global leading manufacturer and pioneer of NC electric discharge machines, with global operations in five continents: Japan, China, ASEAN, US, and Europe.
Developing a fair evaluation system is crucial for its growth to maintain the motivation level of its growing global talents. Conventional HR systems required extensive costs every time there was a need for additional configurations, therefore slowing down its entire HR operations.
Shifting into a Strategic HR
In order to excel in the increasingly fierce global competition, Sodick’s HR department recognizes that it needs to cut down inefficiency and be nimble to support increasing talent management needs from the company’s fast global expansion. Initial goal for implementing WAP’s HR package solution is to practice strategic global talent management starting with building a global employee database. WAP’s HR package solution will help strengthening Sodick’s global competitiveness by drastically improving the following two aspects of its HR operations:
- Simplifying and digitizing existing HR operations by reducing manual operations. WAP’s HR package solution offers vast functionalities which enable Sodick to digitize its manual operations. Sodick’s HR department will be able to shift towards a more stratetigic role by freeing its staff members from manual operations.
- Drastic cost reduction for HR operations. WAP’s business model enables Sodick to make changes based on its HR operational needs as many time as needed, all within the annual maintenance fees.
