March 7, 2011 - PRLog -- London/Paris/Singapore, March 7, 2011 - StepStone Solutions, a global leader in talent management, has deployed its modular solution within the PSA Peugeot Citroën group, a business with nearly 200,000 employees worldwide. StepStone Solutions will enable Group PSA Peugeot Citroën to have world class tools available to deliver its global policy of human resource development. This implementation is part of Group PSA Peugeot Citroën’s “Global HR” project which aims to consolidate the process of HR development and the manufacturer’s new Human Resource Information System (HRIS). This collaboration will for the first time enable optimised processes for performance management, recruitment, internal mobility, and career planning for executives, technicians and supervisors in more than thirty countries.

Lionel Brayard, head of the ‘Global HR’ Project at Group PSA Peugeot Citroën, says of the
key issues behind the HR modernisation: "Our goal is to put our employees at the heart of our development process, to let them become the drivers of their professional development. First, we want to offer our employees motivational careers  while meeting the needs of the Group, in a sector that is rapidly changing  and, secondly, provide operational tools for managers to manage their teams.

"StepStone Solutions, chosen for its proven experience in implementing many international projects, will facilitate the implementation of the various talent management modules and the HR renewal process at PSA Peugeot Citroën. "The approach proposed by StepStone Solutions was the most suitable  for implementing our approach to talent management by skill sectors," explains
M. Brayard. "Creating a solution for a large international business is a real challenge, particularly as we need to take into account the needs and expectations of three types of users: employees, managers and HR managers.”

“This is a high profile project which emphasises our true global capability in major manufacturing companies,” added StepStone Solutions CEO, Matthew Parker. “As we see competition for specialist and executive talent increasing worldwide, solutions that support both employer and employee in having more productive careers will become vital for retention and global competitiveness.”

The implementation of the different talent management components has been planned step by step in a large project involving over 30 countries. Jonas Desdevises, Operations Director of StepStone Solutions France, emphasises the importance of collaboration in the success of the project: “It’s our goal to give the best possible support to the development needs of Group PSA Peugeot Citroën. A real partnership has developed between our teams, allowing us to reach the first deployment milestone in record time. After a successful pilot project in late 2010, the deployment will be extended to all 70,000 managers, technicians and supervisors during 2011. In a second step, solutions to facilitate recruitment, internal mobility and employee career planning will be deployed.”

StepStone Solutions already counts many leading automotive brands among its clients, including BMW, Ford, Fiat and Bentley.
