With the system, which has been live since January 2021, it is now possible to forecast FTE development to the day on the basis of employee master data and planned assumptions. This information is available to various stakeholders in the company in different perspectives (company, locations, teams, etc.). In addition, the system can be used to create well-founded personnel cost planning at any time.
Personnel planning for approx. 4000 employees worldwide
Drees & Sommer is the innovative partner for consulting, planning, construction and operation. As a leading European consulting, planning and project management company, the company has been supporting private and public clients and investors in all matters relating to real estate and infrastructure for 50 years. In interdisciplinary teams, around 4000 employees at 46 locations worldwide support clients from a wide range of sectors.
State-of-the-art planning for HR controlling in demand
As in most companies, sound personnel cost planning at Drees & Sommer can only be achieved through the cooperation of many responsible parties. Even before the introduction of HR planning, the HR Business Partners at Drees & Sommer were responsible for providing a well-founded outlook of all personnel movements. Previously, these were maintained on an Excel basis with a great deal of manual effort and condensed daily or prepared for various report recipients. Colleagues in the finance department used this as a basis for their regular personnel cost forecast.
A reorganisation finally gave reason to replace this process with a software-based solution in order to reduce manual effort, simplify access to information and finally also to bundle responsibility for process and result.
The new HR forecasting system should integrate as well as possible with the HR management solution SAP SuccessFactors, which now combines almost all HR-relevant information. The goal was to create a standard for workforce planning and personnel cost planning that would fit the requirements and yet be flexible enough to easily map possible additional customer needs.
"CoPlanner is an ideal addition to our system landscape and an important further building block in our digital path to HR. Through the direct connection to SuccessFactors Employee Central, we avoid data redundancies and have found a future-proof approach." (Simon Wied, Head of HR Systems & Digital Transformation Drees & Sommer)
