Consumer packaged goods manufacturer implements Oracle HCM Cloud to modernize its HR organization and enhance employee experience

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle announced today that KIK, one of North America's largest independent manufacturer of consumer packaged goods, has adopted Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud to better serve its growing employee base while updating outdated HR systems and technologies. With Oracle HCM Cloud, KIK has the insights and flexibility to streamline HR processes and gain a unified employee experience across 20 different locations in North America.

Doubling its workforce in just three years, KIK's HR department quickly realized it could no longer keep up with the pace and demand of recruiting, hiring, and managing employees. Outdated systems coupled with manual processes slowed down mission-critical HR functions. Disjointed technologies from multiple vendors lacked the integrated insights necessary for today's global business environment. Yet KIK wanted to maintain the flexibility and customization to quickly adjust to the needs of its employees and business goals. After evaluating several solutions, including Workday, KIK ultimately opted for Oracle HCM Cloud for its flexibility, functionality, and robust offering.

"As a manufacturing partner to the world's largest retailers and brands such as Top Job®, Greased Lightning®, Prestone®, Clorox Pool Products and Bullfrog®, KIK prides itself on the quality we deliver to each of our customers. However, the HR and payroll system in place could no longer support the very employees that contributed to the company's incredible success," said Julie Sereney, vice president, HR Shared Services at KIK. "With Oracle HCM Cloud we will gain global insights to ensure the success of our employees while core HR responsibilities like payroll, talent management, and employee benefits are streamlined under one umbrella."

KIK needed a solution to quickly bring its 15-year-old legacy system up-to-date. While multiple vendors offered complex payroll systems, the company was seeking a service that could centralize several areas of HR into a single, comprehensive system.

"Oracle HCM Cloud offers businesses the chance to learn more about its biggest investment – its employees, with a unified view into everything from employee productivity to payroll," said Gretchen Alarcon, group vice president, HCM Product Strategy at Oracle. "Oracle HCM Cloud delivers a simple, holistic platform that offers the robust HR and payroll solutions that KIK needs as a growing global business."

KIK plans to implement Oracle HCM Cloud in two phases; the first focused on payroll, core HR capabilities, and employee benefits, and the second focused on performance, talent management, and recruiting.
