A large global organisation, our client operates offshore rigs servicing oil and gas producers and employs several hundred offshore workers in drilling, operational support and catering roles. With a growing workforce, our client needed a system that could streamline its processes whilst managing increased workloads.
The payroll division of the organisation had the challenge of processing pays for a varied workforce, taking into account a multitude of complex factors which meant inefficiencies of time as they took into account reclassifications, leave, evacuation, training and a complex payment structure for fly-in fly-out payscales.
The Ajilon approach
Our team took the view that the key to addressing the issues was to look for ways to streamline the processing, thereby optimising available resources. We helped our client to clearly identify the problems, their cause and effect and what the desired outcome would be.
How did Ajilon help optimise systems to keep pace with growth?
The Ajilon team responded to the client’s needs by centralising all of the human resource and payroll related data onto one platform. This included identifying what other information was critical and needed to be brought in from elsewhere within the organisation. We helped implement workflows that captured staff movements and their implications on pay, along with authorisation of appropriate pay scales. We also helped develop a new payslip that offered clarity to workers about what they were paid for and during what period.
