As part of a large strategic transformation, Germany based cable company Leoni has selected Capgemini Consulting to support the design and roll-out of its HR transformation. The management and technology consulting firm will bring in a comprehensive HR IT system, as well as provide project management and change management support to the transition.
Leoni was founded in 1917 in Nuremberg, Germany. The company produces wires, optical fibers, cables, cable systems, and related services for a range of industries, including electronic appliances and automotive. The company employs more than 75,000 people across 31 countries.
The deal sees Leoni hire Capgemini Consulting – Capgemini’s global strategy and transformation consulting arm – to implement the company’s HR strategy internationally across its employee bases. The business advisor will support the organisation in setting up the transformation programme, including the governance and PMO, and with the deployment of workstreams and key process redesigns. The programme seeks to better align the company’s strategic goals by connecting HR with business strategy and outcomes. The transformation will according to the Leoni’s management create an integrated HR organisation for its employees, through the implementation of a new HR IT system, with the consultants providing further support to the transition with project and change management.
