Zalaris ASA has signed an agreement with the Carlsberg Group, the third largest brewery in the world, for the provision of outsourced payroll service to Calrsberg’s approximately 5 000 employees in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

The Copenhagen based Carlsberg Group has chosen Zalaris to deliver a wide range of transactional HR services based on Zalaris’ Nordic payroll solution. Thus, enabling Carlsberg to serve their employees with common processes independent of the country that they work. At the same time the solution secures end to end integration with Carlsberg's retained systems through one common set of interfaces to Carlsberg’s own global HR, finance and other relevant systems.

“This is another proof of our European multi country payroll and HR services concept winning with a leading customer to seeking to improve employee experience, improve analytics capabilities through common set of data and simplify the IT landscape with one common set of interfaces to their global HR and finance solutions," says Hans-Petter Mellerud, CEO and founder of Zalaris.

Through the new solution, Zalaris will offer Carlsberg one common platform, with integration from Carlsberg Employee master data in SuccessFactors. Carlsberg will gain of having one contract, one service level and same quality-services across national borders. The scope of the agreement includes Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

Carlsberg's main reasons for choosing Zalaris as a trusted partner were:

  1. Zalaris has proposed a modern and efficient solution that supports our strategy of a unified and common way of working across borders.
  2. Zalaris has one common platform to serve many countries even with low volumes of employees
  3. Zalaris has shown flexibility in the way they have met our demands.
  4. Zalaris has add-ons that could be part of a future solution

  8. Solid experience in local payroll for the countries/markets in scope.

"As we already had been serving Calsberg's subsidiary Ringnes for a number of years we are naturally very happy to expand our relationship to serve Carlsberg in two more countries with,” says Mellerud.
