Digital transformation lab: House of HR's hypergrowth ambitions - An IT perspective
On November 17th 2022 we enjoyed the Digital Transformation Lab powered by XPLUS. We are happy to share with you a summary & key take-aways.
House of HR is a leading European HR services group with 5.100 employees helping over 57.000 people to work at 30.000 clients. Impressive numbers which have grown at an aggressive pace over the last years, often in great leaps through acquisitions.
Moreover, House of HR evolves from matchmaker to career guide and will focus on long-term relationships. With the future of HR being digital, Wilbert Ingels elaborated on two major challenges:
- Building a digital operating model without losing humanity in HR
To act as long-term partner for their clients, trustworthy data becomes a critical resource to continuously deliver spot-on matchmaking. Therefore, House of HR becomes a data-driven company to digitalise and automate core processes, to analyse candidate profiles and to provide comprehensive and reliable advice to their clients. How? They put the team first, create focus and use all assets to accelerate on digital!
- How to capitalise on digital ambitions in a multi-company European structure
The company has grown via many acquisitions in rapid succession. This puts pressure on a centralised model to operate IT, on architectural and security challenges etc. As Group CIO, Wilbert installed a clear IT model with centralised responsibility on infrastructure and security, with application standardisation, all without killing entrepreneurship in business operations. New acquisition? No problem, they have a solid due diligence playbook!
