Supporting a Global Workforce in Manufacturing

Industry: Manufacturing | Location: Global


After several years of international growth in Europe, Asia and South America, a leading US manufacturing company finds itself in need of an HR solution to gain the visibility they need to manage its global workforce. While their North American workforce data was already centralized in a single system, they had no visibility to their independently operated counterparts overseas. To better meet employee needs across multiple geographies, their CHRO set out to find a flexible, cost-effective, and customized solution.
