Trespa International – SAP SuccessFactors

Trespa International is a leading innovator in architectural panel materials and is recognized internationally as the best developer of high performance panels for cladding, decorative facades and Scientific Surface Solutions. To maintain this high-performance culture, a strong focus on Talent Management and state-of-the-art HR services is essential for Trespa. With this Digital HR Transformation, the foundation has been laid for a future-proof HR service.

Strategic Objectives

SAP SuccessFactors provides a strategic contribution to Trespa's organizational goals. The goal was to create a Fit-for-the-Future HR landscape, in which Trespa can be compliant, realize its growth ambitions and above all focus on the desired Employee Experience for employees and managers. And all this in 14 countries!

McCoy as a partner

Trespa works with McCoy HR-Xperience because of our end-to-end vision 'More Than IT' and the approach we developed for this project. During this project, we were reasoning from processes and goals of the business.

McCoy brought a lot of HR expertise to the project, so all the knowledge was already there. McCoy supported in the standardisation of policies, benefits regulations and processes. All change management activities were delivered by McCoy and this allowed Trespa to move from a BPO to an Inhouse HR Service department with Self Service for managers and employees.

The project

The workforce administration was located at a BPO partner in the Netherlands. As a result, Trespa had no control and insight into its own workforce data. Also, HR could no longer guarantee that all data was being handled and stored securely; a major compliance risk was anticipated. Because the HR department has to serve an international organization in 14 countries and there is a huge growth ambition from within the organization, this became an untenable situation for HR. On top of that, from a strategic point of view, managers needed to take more ownership of their own ''people agenda''. It is crucial for Trespa to attract new talent to meet its growth ambitions and a clear pay for performance culture needs to be established. Insight into workforce data is also crucial.

This makes them an example for many other organizations that are considering a similar HR transition, but are wrestling with the question of whether they should do it and/or whether they can handle it. Trespa would say: get on the train and go, because it really takes your organization to another level.

Since August 2020, we have been working with McCoy to implement the SuccessFactors Suite. The McCoy team stood by us as we went through a steep learning curve. They have shown themselves to be a true partner who stays by our side even in difficult times.Tanja Meyers, CHRO Trespa
