Global Technology Manufacturer Adopts Oracle’s Cloud-Based HR to Streamline Processes and Manage Complex Workforce Data
National Instruments (NI) equips engineers and scientists with tools that accelerate productivity, innovation, and discovery to meet not only grand but also daily engineering challenges in an increasingly complex world, and continues to experience growing demand for its technology. To help meet that demand and scale its business, NI selected Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud to better identify and leverage top talent from across its global organization. By standardizing on Oracle HCM Cloud for core HR functions, NI is better equipped to unify HR information, manage employees and candidates, and maximize the efficiency of critical HR processes.
- To better identify and leverage the global talent needed to supports its growth, NI has implemented Oracle Global Human Resources (HR) Cloud, a component of Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud.
- With 7,100 employees in 50 countries worldwide, NI needed to replace multiple legacy HR systems with a modern, cloud-enabled system that could efficiently maintain consistent and accurate employee information on a global scale.
- After evaluating different options, NI selected Oracle HCM Cloud, as it provides the scalability and flexibility required to optimize critical tasks such as managing headcount, recruitment, onboarding, and learning.
- Oracle Global HR Cloud will also help managers and executives better understand their workforce and develop their talent by delivering a single, real-time system for all employee records that is fully integrated with NI’s existing Oracle E-Business Suite footprint.
- In addition, by streamlining administrative processes, Oracle HCM Cloud will enable NI’s HR team to spend more time nurturing existing talent, competitively recruiting top candidates and ensuring each employee is efficiently onboarded.
- Utilizing a phased approach that started with global HR, self-service, and employee benefits management in the U.S., NI went live on Oracle HCM Cloud in March 2014.
- As part of its implementation NI established a global HR shared service center to ensure the consistency and accountability of employee data around the world. This will provide a solid foundation for its adoption of Oracle Talent Management Cloud for compensation, performance management, goal management, talent review, and recruiting.
- “One of our goals at NI is to create a great place to work for our employees. As an HR Team we want to be able to focus on developing our talent. Since we have talent located in approximately 50 countries it is very important that our HR system is industry standard and consistent across borders, so that HR, managers and employees can spend less time gathering data and more time using that data for effective decision making,” said Wendy Cottrell, senior HRIS manager, NI. “Being a technology company, we place tremendous value on the software we use, that’s why we consider our HCM software not just an HR solution but a business solution. We took our decision to choose Oracle HCM Cloud very seriously. We expect that it will have a huge impact on the way we operate and are excited to see the results unfold.”
