Lawson Software announced that Apache Corp. has signed a contract to implement Lawson Global Human Resources, a set of enterprise applications within the Lawson Talent Management Suite. Apache intends to use the Lawson applications as a new foundation to help streamline HR activities throughout its worldwide operations.

            Apache is a Texas-based independent producer of natural gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids with more than 3,000 employees and operations in the US, Canada, the UK North Sea, Egypt, Australia and Argentina. The new Lawson applications will provide Apache a new global HR infrastructure, which will help simplify its global HR processes. Specifically, Apache intends to consolidate multiple HR processes running on multiple systems across numerous regions globally. The company is interested in unifying its HR processes – particularly outside of the US – with a system that will provide a clear view into its HR data, as well as simple access to the right data, critical to Apache’s HR operations.

            “The Lawson Global Human Resources applications will provide a cohesive structure to our current HR systems and data across our worldwide operations,” said Margie Harris, VP Human Resources, Apache Corp. “We are looking for a system that can help us be more strategic about how we manage our most vital resource – our people. Lawson will help us strengthen HR decision-making with a system that is designed around the needs of the organization, but is still simple to use for our employees.”

            Lawson Global Human Resources is designed to support complex global and multi-national organizations. It helps organizations manage reporting structures, supervisor assignments, global employment contracts and other core HR functions. It also provides a skill and competency repository that helps organizations with core talent management activities.

            “Today’s global organizations face a number of challenges, from motivating and managing people across geographies and cultures to unifying HR processes around the world,” said Larry Dunivan, general manager for Strategic Human Capital Management, Lawson. “Apache is a great example of an organization that can benefit from a more cohesive global HR structure and unified processes – as well as a system that can improve the organization’s ability to help employees become more effective and productive.”
