Staples Optimizes Workforce with Oracle Suite

Staples upgrades to PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0. The office products company uses PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 to roll out a long-term strategy to better deploy, monitor and manage talent. This technology will help Staples strategically manage talent, from staffing to individual performance, according to business objectives.

The company also is running an Oracle Database and will deploy PeopleSoft Enterprise Time and Labor to reduce gross payroll costs through automated time capture and pay rate calculations.

Staples also plans to identify, plan, observe, improve and reward performance with PeopleSoft Enterprise ePerformance, a Web-deployed solution that simplifies the appraisal aspect of the performance management process, from planning goals and coaching to assessing performance and rewards.

"Upgrading to PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 was key in helping us strategically address important operational business objectives. Our upgrade was completed on time and on budget, enabling us to quickly begin gaining benefits from the integrated talent management and end-to-end workforce management system. As we continue to take our workforce management transformation to the next level, we'll be closer to ultimately enhancing the overall shopping experience for customers in our stores," said Staples Director of HR Systems, Bob Solomon.
