“Establishing and delivering effective digital processes for time and attendance, travel expenses, payroll and HR is complicated. Zalaris’ transformational Payroll and HR approach supports customers transforming scattered local solutions into one common process designed in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our concept of delivering services based on one common IT solution, supported by local competent resources, works hand in hand with multi-nationals implementing new global HR solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors, Workday or Oracle. We can offer one standardised solution and integration concept in combination with local compliance for customers operating globally in a cost-effective manner” says Zalaris CEO and founder Hans-Petter Mellerud.
Securing business continuity of business-critical payroll during the COVID-19 crisis “Zalaris’ core business has, for more than twenty years, been to provide stable and trustworthy Multi-Country payroll and HR services: combined with a commitment to always being on top of local compliance and integration requirements in the countries we operate. During the COVID-19 crisis, we have demonstrated our ability to secure business continuity for our customers and are delivering services to customers as normal. In times such as these, it is extremely satisfying to see new, large companies recognise this and trust us with long term commitments” – says Mellerud.
“We are proud to support a leading Finnish forest industry group in digitalising their workforce internationally. We are now working on the go live date with Metsa Group and Zalaris Finland will offer business transfer to our service centre at Jyväskylä” – says Sami Seikkula, Executive Vice President Northern Europe.
