Report this content

Zalaris ASA announced the renewal of its agreement with CircleK to deliver European Managed Payroll and HR services for another five-year term.

The new agreement includes the provision of managed payroll and HR services for CircleK’s more than 14,000 employees in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ireland. Services will continue to be powered by Zalaris’ proven Multi-Country Cloud solution for payroll, time, travel expenses and digital personnel archive with portal and mobile self service for HR professionals, managers and employees.  As part of the agreement, Zalaris’ solution will be integrated with CircleK’s new Workday based global HR system.
Solutions supporting cost effectiveness, high degree of service 

“Considering the inherent complexity involved in operating large employee populations in multiple countries efficiently in the digital era, it’s no wonder multi-nationals continue their payroll and HR transformation journey with us” says Zalaris CEO and founder Hans-Petter Mellerud. “CircleK has been a demanding customer of Zalaris since its founding as a separate company in 2012.  We have implemented common payroll and HR solutions for CircleK starting in Scandinavia, then expanding to the Baltics, Poland and Ireland as CircleK has grown their business. Delivering services with one common IT solution with proven and tested integrations to global HR systems, supported by competent resources in our local service centres, has secured cost efficiency and quality of service to end users; whilst at the same time allowing CircleK to implement a common operating model across all of their operations which in itself improves staff efficiency”
Securing business continuity of business critical payroll during the COVID-19 crisis

“Zalaris’ core business has, for almost twenty years, been able to provide stable and trustworthy payroll and HR services.  With a commitment to always being on top of local compliance and integration requirements in the countries we operate.  We are in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis with rapidly changing payroll requirements including taxation, rules for short term work and layoffs. Many companies are struggling securing business continuity while working from home. At the same time, a few key people are trying to cope with these changes by ensuring business critical payroll functions operate according to employees’ expectations. With Zalaris’ distributed network of local service centres and common IT infrastructure, we are rapidly adapting our systems to the changing requirements.  We are now a key element in securing business continuity for our customers and are delivering services to customers as normal. In times as these, it is extremely satisfying to see long term customers renew their trust in us for another extensive term” – says Mellerud.
