The world’s oldest and largest producer and distributor of tropical produce, Fyffes, has migrated its HR operations to Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM) as part of a major IT modernisation program. With Oracle Cloud HCM, Fyffes will benefit from being able to view all its HR data in a single system to enhance the employee experience and improve HR insights and capability.
Founded in 1888 and known for its trademark ‘Blue Label’ pineapples, bananas and Sol-label melons, Fyffes employs over 5,500 permanent employees and between 11,000 and 16,500 seasonal workers, and operates in over 30 countries in Europe, North America and Latin America. It selected Oracle Cloud HCM for its scalability and ability to standardise all HR processes within a single application.
Oracle Cloud HCM will enable Fyffes to adapt its people strategy to meet the ever-increasing pace of change with an all-in-one HCM system that unifies every process across the employee lifecycle, from resourcing and workforce management to payroll services.
Guy Armstrong, senior vice president of applications for Oracle UK and Ireland, said: “Recognising the need for simplified HR processes, Fyffes’ move to Oracle Cloud HCM gives it agility and flexibility in its HR processes at a time of major change and disruption in the fresh produce industry. Fyffes is a forward-thinker with a culture of innovation that has enabled it to lead in its market for years, and with Oracle Cloud HCM it will have an integrated HR management platform to support both its current and future needs.”
Severine Riviere-Gerstner, chief human resources officer at Fyffes, added: “Our employees are Fyffes’ life force. With Oracle, we now have the tools in place to support our global workforce and, most importantly, empower them to innovate and bring value to the millions of customers and suppliers we work with every day. Oracle Cloud HCM will enable us to gain richer data insights and develop self-service processes to reduce manual administration and enhance employee productivity.”
