Cost-saving Zalaris Application Simplifies Key Time Registrations for ArcelorMittal Poland and its 10,000 Steel Industry Employees
On-the-go digital approach enables entries from anywhere there’s an Internet connection, driving efficiencies for staff and management across the enterprise
Another industry leader is turning to Zalaris for unique HR solutions – in this case the largest steel producer in Poland, ArcelorMittal. The company selected Zalaris to introduce an application, “HRapka,” for individual registration of absences and overtime. The application dramatically reduces paper consumption while making all steps more efficient for time-off requests and overtime pay procedures associated with the company that employs approximately 10,000 people across Poland. Zalaris Consulting Poland is responsible for the project’s implementation, slated for completion by year end.
HRapka users have access to the application from virtually anywhere, including office workstations on premise or via mobile devices compatible with Android and IOS. The application combines technology enabling employee self-service and access to online personnel data (via SAP SuccessFactors integration) with the payroll calculation system (SAP ERP), while changing paper documents into a digital request-and-authorization process.
“In just a few clicks, employees can easily check vacation days and other time off available at any given time; update their personal data; send requests; or see the availability of other team members, for example,” explained Katarzyna Kwiatkowska, Zalaris Country Manager Poland. “In addition to simplifying access to relevant data and saving time that would otherwise be spent on completing, printing and submitting paper-based requests to HR coordinators, this application brings digital advantages that ArcelorMittal staff and management will both greatly value.”
When considering the economies of scale that HRapka enables, covering an estimated 10,000 people, company leaders anticipate saving nearly one ton of paper annually or the equivalent of several adult trees annually. “One of the most rewarding aspects of what we do as a company is helping our customers become more efficient in ways that are also good for the environment as well as the health and well being of their employees,” Zalaris CEO, Hans-Petter Mellerud points out. “We are passionate about making a difference everywhere we do business, including at the community level throughout Europe, the UK and Ireland.”
