Great service for great brands

TDS to provide HR services for Unilever

Neckarsulm/Hamburg, February 18, 2010

TDS, a one-stop provider of IT outsourcing and HR services, has been awarded a key contract by Unilever, one of the world’s leading suppliers of branded consumer goods.  From 1 January 2011, TDS will be responsible for all payroll-related tasks for 7,200 employees in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (TDS already has a successful track record working with Unilever in Austria).  In addition, TDS will implement and operate a new SAP HCM system, including an integrated time management solution. The SAP software will be run from TDS’ data centres in Germany - a transfer of employees is part of the agreement. 


Increasing demand for HR BPO

“We are pleased to have successfully broadened our partnership with Unilever.  Our new colleagues will bring a wealth of experience to our team, and we welcome them on board,” said Thomas Eggert, joint managing director of TDS’ HR Services and Solutions.  More and more businesses are turning to HR business-process outsourcing (BPO).  One of the key reasons is the increasing complexity of pay agreements and legislation.  TDS is Germany’s market leader in HR BPO, processing more than 750,000 payroll transactions every month.
