Oracle helps Sofigate speed up onboarding of new hires

Sofigate, the business technology management company based in Northern Europe, has reduced the time needed for its HR team to register new hires onto its systems by 90 percent within three months of deploying Oracle HCM to redefine its HR processes.

Sofigate helps its customers utilise technology and develop capabilities to hone well-managed business processes. The company has experienced significant growth in recent years, and now employs around 600 people in Finland, Sweden, and Denmark.

To help achieve its ambitious growth targets, Sofigate’s HR team needed a human resources platform that could help them better understand the company’s talent to match employee strengths, interests, and availability with customer needs and assignment opportunities.

Following an extensive vendor selection process, the company opted for Oracle HCM.

With Oracle HCM, Sofigate’s employee onboarding process is now self-service, allowing the HR team to focus on creating a better talent experience. The company’s internal promotion workflow—which was previously entirely manual—is now automated and team leads can start the process straight in the system.

All Sofigate employees can now instantly see other talents capability profiles as well as their availability over the next months, which enables more effective allocation to customer assignments and projects. The company also has a much better understanding of its overall talent base, ensuring it can determine the most appropriate strategies for training and development.

With its HR data on a single system, Sofigate has created standardised, end-to-end HR processes, with variations as needed to support business units across all countries of operation. It also has significantly improved HR data integrity by consolidating on Oracle Cloud HCM.

Linda Alamäki, group talent business partner at Sofigate, said: “With Oracle Cloud HCM we have unified our HR data, streamlined the entire HR function, and improved HR service delivery. It has enabled us to optimise resource utilisation for customer assignments and ensure we have the functionality and scalability to support our growth targets.
