The HR system now sits on a new platform named Wilbur, and is at the heart of GKN Aerospace’s connected IT systems, uniting its people and processes.
The new self-service functionally enables employees to have greater personal accountability for their own professional development by interacting with training tools and competence management. The ability to execute HR tasks and find information is empowering employees to take ownership of their own careers and development, boosting engagement and driving productivity, while also freeing up the time of the HR department.
Processes are more employee-centric and foster continuous feedback which aids team dynamics. Accurate data and enhanced reporting capabilities allow managers, team leaders and senior HR staff to make better decisions faster, and provide greater visibility into performance and satisfaction levels.
Today, SAP SuccessFactors (Wilbur) and delaware are driving the success of HR at GKN Aerospace and helping the company grow and evolve as a global enterprise model. The new system has provided a strong, scalable platform, capable of helping to deliver accelerated business expansion and evolving HR demands. It is already supporting future phase roll-outs and will continue to enhance GKN Aerospace’s HR processes, encourage positive change in the way that its employees work and innovate, and lay the foundation for long-term, sustainable growth.
