GMCS improves Siberia Coal Energy Company personnel management system
GMCS has improved the methodology for the implementation of SAP Human Capital Management* solution at the Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK), Russia’s largest coal mining and export company. This completes the first stage of a large-scale Siberian Coal Power Company personnel management system development project.

The distinctive feature of this GMCS project is the extremely tight schedule set to find the solution to a complex methodological problem. The tasks included making an analysis of the existing salary regulations, types of benefits, and personnel accounting processes; improving and unifying such processes; developing recommendations for the HR services performance optimization across the open mining, maintenance and transportation companies that make up SUEK.

GMCS consultants have also developed a reporting structure, templates and documents to keep statistics and perform ongoing analysis of personnel management efficiency.

The methodology was developed within four months. The tasks were accomplished exactly on schedule thanks to excellent coordination of the project team and specific goal-setting by the SUEK management and specialists responsible for personnel management and designing the SAP HCM.

"At present SUEK employs over 40,000 people. Management and appraisal for such a big number of people requires a high level of HR business processes transparency and constant revision of resource use efficiency. Employing a standard IT personnel management system across all companies is designed to deal with these issues," says Andrei Voina, Project Director, SAP HCM ERP, SUEK Ltd.

"The level of expertise and experience accumulated by GMCS in building SAP-based personnel management systems allows the company to not only successfully carry out implementation projects, but, above all, to act as a business consultant and expert both in development and supply of the implementation methodology and in the area of personnel management methodology," says Boris Rapoport, Vice President, CompuLink Group, GMCS is a member of. The SAP HCM solution is expected to be launched using the new methodology across all facilities of the coal company and become and important component of the SUEK ERP system.
