Vandemoortele Group is the biggest – privately held – food company in Belgium. The group has 5200 employees and is present in 12 European countries.

Vandemoortele was using an outdated Oracle system to support their admin processes. They were in need of an integrated solutionto support their ambition to develop a professional Talent Management strategy. In April 2016, Emeritis was chosen as partner to design new processes, including self-services, supported by the implementation of SuccessFactors.

HR Consulting plays an important role in this project. Emeritis performed Visioning Workshopsand Process DesignSessions to translate Vandemoortele’s HR strategy into business requirements.

So far, the following SuccessFactors modules went live:

  • Employee Central, including roll-out to 10 countries, with interfaces to local payroll providers
  • Goals and Performance Management

Together with Emeritis, Vandemoortele has created a change networkacross all countries. Each country has its own local trainers to get all management and end users up to speed with the new tool. In this way we guarantee the right level of consistency across the different countries.

The first metrics show that the performance tool has a high user adoption. The internal helpdesk receives very few questions which proofs the tool is intuitive and our change management approach has worked.

The following modules are in scope for 2017 & 2018:

  • Recruiting Management
  • Succession & Development
  • Compensation Management
  • Onboarding
  • Learning
