The new HR platform operates as a service, and Mondadori now enjoys continuous improvements to the system as their needs change. By creating this seamless connection to HR, Mondadori can focus on more strategic matters, knowing their people are getting a better user experience, and shifting from manual, to automated processes.
Underpinning these processes are industry best practices, elevating the efficiency and effectiveness of everyone involved. With the advent of the Oracle system, Mondadori now has one single modern user experience across all HR processes and devices. And the company can deliver more training (37k learning enrolments in 2020 and 11k learning enrolments in the first quarter of 2021) while cutting overall costs by 30%. The COVID pandemic hit after the solution’s go-live and nearly all of the company’s 2,000+ employees were asked, when possible, to work from home.
To help facilitate remote working, Mondadori leveraged on Oracle Learning to develop online training to teach its people how to be more effective working from home. Accenture also developed and released a chatbot in just a month’s time. Its purpose: to provide guidance on any COVID questions and on Mondadori’s initiatives. With the success of the original chat box, Accenture rolled out the Oracle Digital Assistant which covers a wide-range of topics, including COVID policies and other employee health benefits.
