1:55 PM Setting the Foundation for HR Innovation – People Remain Key

In this session, hear how NYSE-listed $20bn biotechnology company Thermo Fisher is moving from a traditional HR structure into a “scalable standardised service” by actively engaging with its stakeholders to harmonise processes and technology, removing a tangle of legacy systems and varying processes.
Learn about the tips and tricks Wendy has used to get senior sponsorship and buy-in for the HR transformation programme, breaking down the “us and them” dynamic that is often typical of SSC set-ups, and how she has successfully established relationships with her wider business to establish the key processes and behaviours that need to change. Learn how she is utilising process-mapping and new technologies to facilitate this, but how ultimately, she believes it is the ability to build strong relationships that will determine the success or failure of any transformation.
