According to Hawes, Alyeska's ability to integrate with an industry-specific, third-party solution is just one way the resort is using UltiPro to improve people operations. Role-based access for managers has unlocked value throughout the organization."We've been thrilled to see what our managers can do without support from the HR team," said Hawes. "In the past, a manager had to walk a piece of paper around and collect a number of signatures, and then the information had to be entered into a system by HR. Now, supervisors can initiate transfers or pay increases and the approval process is entirely automated. These efficiencies are a benefit not only to management, but also HR. Freed from managing a paper process, HR can direct more resources to talent acquisition strategies, a particularly important activity given our limited labor pool. UltiPro has helped us find the time to recruit better talent and elevate the level of staff we bring on board." "UltiPro is designed to enhance strategic planning, and reduce the time spent on manual tasks—so that employees at every level can provide greater business value," said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer, mid-market and strategic, at Ultimate. "We are pleased that Alyeska is using UltiPro to better manage expenses and drive improvements with their people operations."
