Easy implementation and training
The implementation of Sympa HR was a process of three months. The project kicked off in the autumn, and the system was already in full swing by the turn of the year. Scania was able to test the solution from day one, and any necessary changes could be made right away.
Annika Vikholm, HR specialist at Scania Finland, praises the project for its smooth execution. She is especially happy with the collaboration within project management. “The deployment of Sympa HR went brilliantly,” Vikholm says. “The company provided us with a skilled consultant who organised effective workshops.”
The HR team were the first to adopt Sympa HR, followed by managers, and finally all personnel. Now, each employee’s work lifecycle is easily traceable in the system.
“We finished the project perfectly on schedule, and the product turned out exactly how we wanted. There were genuine tears of joy and hugs all around when we wrapped things up”, Vikholm smiles.
Sympa HR brings relief to hectic work days
The multi-use HR solution has offered valuable support to Scania’s HR, where fast-paced working days are the norm. The users have also been able to complete the vast majority of adjustments independently, without having to involve technical support. Eventually, once Scania’s documents, approvals and other materials are saved digitally in Sympa HR, the company will be able to have a paperless office.
Sympa HR represents a new era in human resources and a step towards even more effective HR operations at Scania Finland. Plans for future collaboration are already in place. “We’re glad to be sharing ideas about further developing our cooperation”, Hyttinen says.
“We’ll definitely continue working together in the future and customise the system for our evolving needs. The best thing about human resources is the variety and the opportunity to help others. With Sympa we can do our job even better.”
