SuccessStory: Kerry Group

Kerry drives global growth and performance with support from SAP SuccessFactors and GP Strategies

Project at a glance:

Kerry is running a company-wide and large-scale change programme implementing the full SuccessFactors Talent suite. GP Strategies was selected as the implementation partner.

In October 2018, Kerry went live in nine months with Employee Central, Recruiting Management and Recruiting Marketing, integration to multiple payrolls, replication to SAP on premise and delivery of US benefit platform.

Challenges overcome in the project:

The scale and complexity of delivering a full suite implementation within nine months was challenging but GP Strategies was able to work closely with Kerry to ensure that the scope was delivered within the required timeline and to the agreed cost.

“GP Strategies off site delivery model worked perfectly, they supplied on site expertise as required that delivered a high quality product that exceeded our expectations.”

– Iain Witherington, Group VP of HR, Kerry Group
