Generali optimizes HR data with Oracle Analytics


Oracle Analytics enables Generali to improve its data-driven approaches and automate reporting processes across the HR community.

Business challenges

Generali is the largest insurance company in Italy and one of the biggest worldwide. With a massive global footprint that covers more than 40 countries and encompasses more than 70,000 employees, the company was sitting on a trove of HR data, all contained within the HCM solution. That’s when it decided to adopt a new analytics approach to exploit the data.

The HR departments at Generali compiled data manually in templates and sent those templates to the main office team for analysis. This was time-consuming and susceptible to errors. Generali needed a more efficient, reliable and automated approach.

The goal was to find a solution that would increase a data-driven mindset across Generali’s HR community, a shift that would have a long-term ripple effect of increasing efficiencies, correlating HR patterns for better decision-making, and automating measures that focus on improving the overall HR function and employee engagement.

We had a lot of people focused on reporting. Colleagues were required to provide information from all around the world every month. We are now autotomizing that process.
