Babcock International is a multi-national engineering and support services organisation spanning defence, energy, telecommunications and education sectors and employing approximately 27,000 staff. It is one of the highest performing companies in the FTSE top 100.
The federated nature of the business had given rise to a number of issue in relation to HR technology, specifically a lack of group-wide governance and reporting and the need to operate under increasingly stringent IT standards. Orion were engaged by the CIO and Group HRD in Babcock to prepare a detailed strategy and business case to define the future direction of HR technology across the group and to define detailed business requirements for the solution. Following completion of the programme, Babcock successfully implemented a new technology platform across all business divisions.
