Ministerie van Defensie is the government agency responsible for the armed forces of the Netherlands. Headed by the Minister of Defense, the Ministry consists of its central staff, the Royal Netherlands Navy, the Royal Netherlands Army, the Royal Netherlands Air Force, the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, the Support Command, and the Defense Material Organization. With a employees numbering approximately 68,000, this governmental organization is one of the biggest employers in the Netherlands.
Ministerie van Defensie needed to consolidate its fourteen siloed, legacy human resources (HR) systems that supported its seven divisions to achieve a more centralized HR solution and lower costs by streamlining administrative processes and enabling independent, on-demand employee updates. As important, it required customized configurations in its HR management solution to support tailor-made reporting for more efficient reporting to ease the organization’s HR administrative burden, further advancing cost savings.
The organization implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Resources, which enabled the rapid availability of HR-related information across all divisions. With the solution, Ministerie van Defensie gained a highly-available, centralized environment to support on-demand employee information updates and streamlined, tailor-made reporting for management. As a result, it realized a 50% savings for its HR administrative costs due to the self-service nature of the platform and the available, up-to-date, and accurate data provided by the new solution.
