In July 2021, SIJ Group launched an innovative HR project, to consolidate the information systems of Group’s seven key companies. As part of the project, the Group will set up a unified control system over companies’ HR data and processes, as well as the payroll and work attendance records.
The implementation of a modern and unified HR system is part of the five-year strategy of SIJ Group. It is aimed at promoting SIJ Group as one of the leading Slovenian companies in the field of HR management. This project will bring us even closer to fulfilling our long-term goal of becoming one of the most desirable Slovenian employers.
We expect this new solution to provide our employees and the management with the tools they need for managing HR activities, such as planning and performance assessment, professional competence and personal skills development, as well as career planning, promotions and rewards. Also, with this high-tech centralized system SIJ Group management will receive reliable data for monitoring HR processes and making efficient strategic decisions in the area of HR management.
Employees will have an option to access the new HR system via a mobile app. As a result, they will be able to take care of many personal issues without delay and will get easy access to their personal data.
Thanks to the synergy enabled by this modern, unified and time-efficient HR system, our HR experts will dedicate most of their time to development activities and the long-term business strategy for the professional growth of SIJ Group employees. They will also have more resources to promptly respond to employee queries and provide quality support to company’s management.
We have brought together three partners to work on this project, each of them providing hi-tech solutions, excellent teams of consultants and developers, and high standards of project management:- SAP SE (SAP Success Factors cloud solution),- Špica International (access control and time tracking solutions),- iPiramida (payroll solutions).
The SIJ Group project team consists of HR and IT experts who work in collaboration to efficiently implement this project. The project is scheduled to be completed by November 2022.
