- The CFO and the Finance team make projections about the financial impact of benefits open enrollment in order to complete the company's annual budget. Once open enrollment is completed, HR can provide reports that show the actual number of employees who migrated to new plans and the financial implications.
- The SVP of Operations is using turnover report details that include numbers, positions, and reasons to understand why turnover may be unexpectedly high in certain areas. UltiPro's ability to capture comments from general managers helps the Operations team make data-driven business decisions.
- The Controller and the Accounting team are able to use reports from UltiPro to understand the financial impact of major organizational changes, such as the company's move to a PTO-accrual vacation policy. Instead of having to make projections about employee hours used versus booked, the HR team is able to present the Controller with reports showing exactly how much employee PTO has been used, the company's rate of accrual for the rest of the fiscal year, and how much requested time is still pending. The company is able to book more accurate financial information because of the increased visibility into employee activity.
"This centralized system of record is important because data boosts our objectivity when we evaluate employees for promotions and growth opportunities," said Fisher. "In the HR world, we tend to focus on how we feel about an employee today rather than the employee's track record. UltiPro enlightens our conversations about potential candidates for open positions. We are able to send reports to senior management that show the number of open positions and how long they've been open, and then identify the best candidates. UltiPro gives us the ability to collect and analyze business-critical data with just a couple of clicks.""UltiPro Business Intelligence is a game-changer for companies looking to maximize their people data and apply resources most effectively," said Greg Swick, global chief sales officer at Ultimate.
