Cloud HR tools support ‘transformation’ of pharmaceutical industry, say Workday customers

GSK, Sanofi, AstraZeneca among pharma firms adopting Saas HR

Workday’s software as a service HR tools are facilitating the ‘reinvention’ of the pharmaceutical industry by unifying management of large global workforces, according to some of the market’s largest firms.

Speaking as part of a panel at Workday’s first European customer conference in London on Tuesday, IT and HR leaders at three of the largest healthcare and pharma companies – GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi and AstraZeneca – highlighted the importance of cloud HR tools in modernising their businesses to manage tens of thousands of staff.

“We are really in an industry that is the process of reinventing itself,” said Denis Sacre VP for HR services at Sanofi. “Like many other pharmaceutical companies, Sanofi grew massively through mergers and acquisitions over the last few years. But, as much as we do a good job of integrating the front end side of the business, it is more cumbersome when you go to back-office functions, particularly HR.”

Sanofi announced last October that it would be replacing a number of large HR applications with one unified cloud-based HCM application for core HR and talent management across the entire organisation. According to Sacre the project was necessary to resolve some of the challenges of Sanofi’s highly acquisitive nature – buying up to 30 new businesses a year since 2008.

Sacre said the company intends to go live with Workday HCM by the end of 2015 for 70,000 of its 100,000 staff by the end of 2015. This will allow the firm to gain better insight into the talent within its organisation, as it moves into new fields such as genetics and animal health.
