ADAMA

Planting the Seeds for a Consistent Corporate Identity with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

ADAMA is a fast-growing, off-patent crop protection solutions company. They work to make the complex business of farming simpler for farmers by offering agrochemical products that support better planning and greater certainty of crops. Recent opportunities for their agchem business in China saw the workforce more than doubling, and at the same time, Adama has made the strategic move to unify 50 brands into one global brand.

Challenge

Create a global and up-to-date HR function, underpinned by unified processes and infrastructure, on one platform that can handle current and future HR needs as the company grows.

AKT helped Adama globalize its HR processes and implemented SAP SuccessFactors solutions across its 45 countries. Implementation included Employee Central, Performance and Goals, Succession Management, Compensation and Recruitment. The AKT team also created a unified analytic BI dashboard that allowed for tracking and measuring critical performance indicators on talent and HR.

Transparent Results That Support Future Growth

Globalizing HR has served as a catalyst for business transformation across the entire company. With 95 per cent of employee records already in the system, Adama now has accurate, real-time employee information encompassing its entire workforce. This allows HR and every department to gain the benefits of global workforce planning and management with standardized organization, jobs, pay and employee record-keeping. At the same time, the single global platform provides the flexibility of localization, allowing the company to meet specific business requirements in countries worldwide.

As the company grows, SAP SuccessFactors solutions will also help ensure smooth onboarding of future acquisitions and have payroll integration when needed.

Feeding billions of people is a challenge that demands simplification. Backed by a consistent corporate identity enabled by a global HR system, Adama’s employees have the processes they need to make the complex business of farming simpler.

 


“I view SAP SuccessFactors more as a cultural tool than a technology tool. It pushes us to think differently – to seek simplicity in all our processes – and has created a greater sense of community in the organization.”
