Orica chooses NorthgateArinso for global HR services in the cloud


NorthgateArinso (NGA), the leading global HR service provider, has been appointed by global mining services company, Orica, to deliver HR services supporting the entire employee lifecycle of its 15,000 employees in over 50 countries.

In January, Orica selected euHReka, NGA’s cloud-based BPaaS (Business Process as a Service) platform, as its global platform for Workforce Administration, Learning, Talent Management and Recruitment. Orica also selected NGA to replace its Australia/New Zealand payroll platform with euHReka’s Global Payroll solution for its 3,800 employees in these two countries.

General Manager, Policy & Employee Services, Supriya Iyer said: “We required a cost effective solution with proven performance on a global scale.

“With over 15000 Orica employees working across more than 50 countries we set a high hurdle for global HR services provision. The global credentials and international experience of NGA gave us the confidence we demanded in deploying such a vital HR support service at this scale.”

Denis Tournesac, President Asia Pacific & Japan, said: “We are honoured to be able to start supporting a market leader such as Orica in Australia & New Zealand and across the globe through our global HR service delivery network and platform.

“Orica will roll out NGA’s euHReka to every employee across their global operations as the one, singular HR and Payroll portal. Initially it goes-live for some 9,000 Orica employees in Australia, New Zealand, North America, and Asia. The objective is to complete phase 1 of the rollout to all other countries by August this year.”

“euHReka will establish a single repository for all people-related data for Orica, enabling globally standardized HR processes, a solid foundation for unified HR reporting and analytics, and an all-in-one integrated HR services platform.”
