Standard Life Aberdeen Group is a global investment company. Headquartered in Edinburgh, UK, they employ over 9,000 employees across their operations around the globe.
One of Standard Life Aberdeen's key HR challenges is that they are now dealing with a multi-generational workforce. The unceasing development of technology and with the younger generations' demands for more provides Standard Life Aberdeen the chance to re-evaluate their HR service.
Keeping up with the on-going change in laws and payroll legislations is another challenge for Standard Life Aberdeen. They wanted a reliable payroll solution that would allow them to meet their organisation’s compliance obligations whilst having a smooth payroll operation in the UK and globally.
Standard Life Aberdeen have been in a successful partnership with SD Worx for over four years. Their international growth paved the way for their management team to decide to move to a single supplier, not only to help reduce risk and reduce costs, but also to bring efficiency in their processes.
SD Worx and Standard Life Aberdeen worked hand in hand to implement the on-boarding process of the latter's 17 international territories. The local knowledge and experience of Standard Life Aberdeen's UK team along with the expertise and guidance provided by SD Worx made the implementation process a huge success.
One of the main reasons for Standard Life Aberdeen's decision to move from multiple, different vendors to an exclusive SD Worx agreement was in relation to compliance and risk management. Standard Life Aberdeen appreciates the fact that SD Worx have a global alliance team and a compliance team that can help Standard Life Aberdeen with any issue.
