Overview of the client

Business Challenges and Objectives

  • The client wanted to redesign the workforce planning process to address the challenges of a manual solution that was rigid, time-consuming, and not user-friendly.
  • The client wanted to automate the processes to improve the user experience by having a dynamic, robust, and easy-to-use solution.
  • The client also required a solution that would include open requisitions from ATS and therefore be a single-stop for all the existing and planned headcount.
  • The new solution was required to generate the monthly baseline forecast easily, and simplify the steps to add, modify, transfer, or remove employees.
  • Lastly, the new solution was required to have excellent reporting and visualizations capabilities.

The Solution

  • The TekLink Team redesigned the workforce planning solution from the ground up by:
    • Automating several planning processes.
    • Redesigning and optimizing the layouts for better user experience and increased real estate usage.
    • Standardizing all forms and reports for a consistent user experience and functionality.
    • Adding a dynamic and flexible mass upload feature to add different positions or requisitions with one click.
  • The Team also automated baseline forecast creation by carrying over previous planned hires and requisitions with the ability to exclude some.
  • The solution can also auto-generate start dates based on predefined logic for requisitions’ start dates.
  • It can also auto-generate base salary for new hires and requisitions based on predefined logic.
  • The solution integrated the BPC Solution with SAP Analytics Cloud for the reporting and analysis.
