Creighton University—Molly Billings, Senior Director, Human Resources
Founded in 1878, Creighton University is one of the largest Jesuit colleges and universities in the US. More than 8,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students go to Creighton each year to find their place in the world through lives of leadership and service. Partnering with Baker Tilly, Creighton University implemented the Oracle HCM Cloud’s talent management module and Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud to replace its existing talent systems and to enhance HR processes. Prior to Oracle HCM Cloud, Creighton University used disparate HR systems to keep track of employee and talent data, manage the goal-setting and performance review processes, and hire talent. Talent review and succession planning had been completed and managed manually offline. Through the implementation of Oracle HCM Cloud, Creighton University was able to roll out goal management, performance reviews, talent profile, talent review, and succession planning in order to leverage a single platform to store employee talent data. HR leaders now have a real-time, comprehensive view of the university’s employees and are able to use reporting and analytics to help drive organizational strategy.
The Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud implementation afforded the team an opportunity to weave the mission and values of the university throughout all portions of the recruiting process. New hires understand the unique value proposition that Creighton University has to offer before even stepping foot on campus. As part of the Oracle HCM Cloud implementation, Creighton has streamlined and modernized its HR processes and implemented an integrated talent management platform (goal management, performance review, career development, talent profile, talent review, succession planning) to allow the university to better attract and retain top talent. This also helps give HR leaders more time to focus on strategic issues and value-adding activities and spend less time on administration.
The Creighton team utilized resources from across the organization to drive the project’s successful implementation. The HR generalist team, faculty advisory council, and IT group served as the strongest advocates for change throughout the transformation. A change management team was established to manage the change activities throughout the implementation. Creighton University is a forward-thinking organization with a highly effective and collaborative team of professionals and leaders who are committed to success and excellence. They push the boundaries on innovation, pursue new knowledge for the betterment of society, and seek to improve the world through their values.
Garbarino SAIC—Noelia Laura Lopez, Senior Director, HR Director
Garbarino SAIC, a leading retailer of home appliances, consumer electronics, and other household products in Argentina, hires around 350 people per month during peak seasons. Its manual recruiting, selection, and onboarding processes—with too much time spent on submitting requisitions and selecting candidates—couldn’t meet the fast-growing retailer’s demands for hiring quality talent and quickly onboarding new recruits. HR Director Noelia Laura Lopez implemented Oracle Talent Management, Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud, and modules for onboarding and mobile with help from Deloitte.
Her vision for creating tomorrow’s HR, today has significantly improved the candidate experience, with requisitions getting posted faster and the selection process taking far less time, thanks to standardized processes, automated approvals and workflows, and self-service forms suppliers complete online. With these efficiency gains, Lopez’s team now has more time to focus on attracting, developing, and retaining top talent to support Garbarino’s business needs and enhancing its employer brand. Garbarino is not only keeping top talent in the family, it’s keeping Oracle as a trusted innovation partner—and sharing its success through being a customer reference.
Pepper Group—Sue Kent, Head of Human Resources
Pepper Group, Australia's #1 alternative lender, has helped 100,000 Australians secure home, car, and other loans—earning it numerous awards like Best Non-Bank Lender in 2017. Pepper’s expanding offices throughout Asia, Europe, and North America required its Head of Human Resources, Sue Kent, to find an HR solution that could keep pace with rapid global growth. Kent selected Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle Talent Management Cloud to help automate Pepper’s full employee lifecycle, from recruit to retire, with support from Oracle Platinum Partner Certus Solutions.
Digitally transformed processes include goal management, performance management, career development, succession planning, compensation, and talent acquisition (recruiting and onboarding), with an interface to ADP payroll. Managers and employees have embraced self-service, entering their own competency-based talent profiles, talent ratings, and performance reviews. HR and line of business leaders use this information to find internal talent to fill key vacancies, identify and address skill gaps, and develop succession plans. Dashboard analytics help executives assess the business impact of moving talent so they can maximize results. Other benefits include streamlined recruiting and onboarding, which has accelerated time to productivity and driven cost savings due to lower administrative overhead. Kent’s success in leading this HR transformation has led to the rollout of Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle Talent Management Cloud in Pepper’s Ireland, UK, and Canada offices, helping to continue to grow its talent family.
