Pernod Ricard has launched an online internal mobility strategy for it's 19,000 employees.With Taleo's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, employees of the drinks manufacturer now have access to all internal mobility opportunities offered across all subsidiaries. This initiative, coupled with the implementation of Taleo for external recruitment, will allow Pernod Ricard to strengthen its employer brand and boost employee engagement.
Driven by a desire to create a shared culture, the Pernod Ricard Group, encourages inter-departmental working as well as co-working across distribution companies and brand owners. In early 2008, Pernod Ricard adopted a new internal mobility policy, based on an employment exchange used across all of its subsidiaries. Over the year, this matured to a more global HR project: international work groups were formed within the HR community aligned around a common set of principles.
Bruno Rain, Pernod Ricard’s managing director, in charge of HR and CSR, said: "We wanted to develop a unique solution for the whole group but without imposing a rigid process on our subsidiaries. The new solutions offer both the ability to manage recruitment for a group our size and the flexibility of configuration that allows each of our subsidiaries to adapt the tool to their individual needs and circumstances."
Now all of the Group’s 19,000 employees have full access to internal vacancies, giving them greater control of their own careers. Pernod Ricard’s HR teams also have a global view on applications, vacancies and candidates. Due to the success of the deployment so far, the company plans to deploy similar solutions for external recruitment across the rest of its subsidiaries by the end of 2010.
