Transforming HR: Metso's Journey to a Modern Cloud-Based Platform

Adopting a new cloud-based HR platform enabled Metso to build modern HR processes and tools to support global growth.

Award-winning SuccessFactors implementation with Metso

We were able to finish the project fully on time – and we even managed to keep the costs lower than estimated! This, despite the fact that the project schedule was tight and there were lots of challenging integrations to carry out. What helped with the successful completion of the project was that most of the project team members had worked together in the past, were familiar with both the system and the way of working as a team in a responsible and flexible way and had a great attitude. We are over the moon about winning the Nordic Quality Awards in the Business Transformation category, and the prospect of participating in the regional final excites us

Metso replaced its previous traditional HR solution with a new cloud-based solution as the company wanted to reduce the number of tools used by its supervisors and employees, while cutting down the cost of using applications, modernising integrations and streamlining the information system environment. The implementation of SuccessFactors Employee Central put the finishing touch to the overall project started in 2014 (called Metso PeoplePoint Program), where the rest of HR had gradually adopted SuccessFactors. Now, the core processes or the basic HR master data could also be migrated to the system. In addition to the implementation of the SuccessFactors Employee Central module, it was integrated into five payroll systems as well as three other systems using the SAP HANA Cloud platform. There were also built-in integrations between SF Employee Central as well as the SFRecruiting and SF Succession modules.
