Oracle Human Resources Management System
Unlock the value of your workforce
Managing any workforce takes ready access to consistent, accurate data. Managing a global workforce adds challenges like multiple languages, currencies and local regulations. That’s a lot to keep track of. As an organization grows, either organically or through acquisitions, it isn’t hard to lose control over human resource (HR) processes and data. To answer these needs, many companies are turning to sophisticated, scalable Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions such as Oracle Human Resources Management System (HRMS).
Through a combination of demonstrated methods and tools, Deloitte’s Oracle HRMS practice helps our clients efficiently plan and manage its workforce on a global basis, provide a single integrated HCM system, simplify HR infrastructure maintenance and support and deliver an array of competitive, cost-effective programs.

Workforce solutions with support from the workforce
When you make the decision to invest in a new platform, you have charted a path to more efficient operations, but that’s just the beginning. The implementation effort is difficult to execute without significant support from the senior executive suite and the global operations business leadership. And resistance is commonplace. For the new system to work, managers and employees will likely have to change the way they do their jobs. If the company is to establish a true global standard, which is the whole point, someone is going to have to compromise.
That makes Oracle HRMS implementation as much a human challenge as a technical one. It meshes process improvement, standardization and automation with decision-making protocols and staff buy-in. When it all works, a transformation on this scale can give managers throughout the business–not only in HR–the tools and information they need to manage the workforce consistently and globally. It also helps integrate acquired entities into the parent HR process in less time with fewer resources. Deloitte can help with these challenges and get your Oracle HRMS implementation up and running quickly, smoothly, and effectively.

Four ways to get more value now
Our teams have helped companies around the world make Oracle part of their day-to-day HR management. Here are a few tips we’ve learned along the way.
Enlist support early. A change on this scale can shake a lot of trees, so resistance may be found at many staff levels. Make the case for change through clear, consistent internal messages. Avoid surprises. And make sure the endorsement from senior leaders is loud and clear.
Set aside time. During an implementation, critical people end up with two jobs. To keep that from being disruptive or overtaxing, back-fill production roles and build contingency allowances into your project work plans.
Keep moving forward. Nothing wastes time and money like revisiting decisions after they’ve been made. Institute a formal process for making, documenting and communicating decisions and clearly refine who is accountable for each one. If there is a need to backtrack, make sure it happens within the system, not as an exception.
Stay on target. Scope creep is a danger in any broad change project. You can combat it by setting up a change control process that bases approval of each change on a full understanding of its impact and its place in the overall strategy.
Oracle HRMS in action
- A company that supported medical diagnosis, treatment and research decided to replace its legacy HR, payroll and timekeeping systems to achieve the benefits of an integrated ERP system. Senior management chose to standardize on Oracle HRMS. Deloitte supported the transition with project management, process and application integration services, data conversion, communications and training. The implementation finished on time and on budget, providing the human resources and payroll departments with enhanced functionality and improved compliance. Integrating the payroll system with other financials eliminated the need for manual entries and provided stronger controls for Sarbanes-Oxley and the organization enjoyed faster, more accurate access to key information.
- A call center organization with sites in more than a dozen countries was adjusting to global growth with an HR system it was unable to scale. Manual processes and patches, frequent maintenance, lack of standardization and the need for multiple technical skill sets all made the system increasingly expensive to operate and it wasn’t integrated properly with company's financial systems. The company implemented a two-phase transition to Oracle HRMS and Deloitte supported the move through project management, process and application integration services, data conversion, communications and training. Benefits included globally designed and deployed applications for HRMS and financials, standardized global policies and practices, enhanced payroll flexibility and control and increased data accuracy with centralized global reporting.
- A nationwide baking operation was already using Oracle HRMS, but various implementations within its affiliates led to disconnected HR, payroll and benefits modules and limited knowledge transfer. The company needed help bolstering executive sponsorship, creating shared requirements, defining application support roles and decision making and mapping out its ongoing support model. Deloitte provided process and application integration scoping and strategy, business process redesign, project management, process and application integration services, data conversion and communications and training to support the overhaul. The Oracle HRMS project added significant value to the company’s HR and payroll departments with enhanced core HR, payroll and reporting capabilities, while providing a critical single source of data for its entire employee population. The company achieved the benefits of an automated system and the footprint for future company growth.
