DaimlerChrysler is planning to train 170,000 staff across Europe to use an eHR system. The system will initially be rolled out in 17 factories in Germany and Spain. If it is successful, the company plans to extend the system to other European sites, including those in Great Britain. The ePeople system is based on PeopleSoft's Enterprise Human Resources Management system and ADP's PAISY payroll calculation package. It is Internet-based and brings together nearly 2,000 different processes that used to be handled by legacy systems at the different sites. DaimlerChrysler chose 80 HR staff to be involved in the testing phase of the system implementation. The most intensive training was needed for a core of HR staff who will be using the system. The biggest challenge for us was to train 2,000 employees in the HR department nearly at the same time, says Dr Stefan Rentzsch von Sichart, the scheme's project manager. A cascade model will be used, where HR teach the managers, who then teach the workers. This will be supported with an online helptool, available to HR staff, and managers.
