4 CASE STUDY: Ultra Electronics Since 2011, Kallidus Talent software has helped Ultra Electronics to retain 97% of high potential employees, with 70% of key leadership positions filled internally Ultra Electronics is a group of businesses managing a portfolio of specialist capabilities for the defence, security, transport and energy markets. Ultra uses Kallidus Talent to help meet crucial HR challenges, aligning, managing and developing global and succession strategies for sustained company growth. The challenge for Ultra Electronics Ultra Electronics consists of 30 autonomous businesses employing over 4,500 staff worldwide. As with any large company, succession planning and management are a priority. Historically, succession and development plans were created in Excel but as the business grew, Ultra found that this no longer worked. They wanted a solution that would allow autonomous teams with their own unique business requirements to maintain control over their strategic HR information. With hundreds of key employees within the overall corporate succession plan, it was vital that Ultra could automate management processes in one system. The solution provided by Kallidus Ultra chose Kallidus Talent because it offered a smart and simple way to manage and succession, saving time and money whilst accommodating business growth. After a swift implementation programme, Ultra began utilising Kallidus immediately, by running a pilot in January 2011 to ensure the software met their integration capability requirements. They purchased trial licenses for their Head Office, as well as a small selection of businesses in the UK, Canada and the USA. Results were impressive, so the decision was made to implement across all of the 30 businesses. When an additional business was created within the Group, Ultra were able to use Kallidus Talent to identify the right people to fulfil key positions. In fact within the Group as a whole, 80% of appointments made at Managing Director level were internal. 97% retention Key benefits Ultra Electronics now retain 97% of high potential employees, with 70% of key leadership positions filled internally The software provides the flexibility to identify worldwide job opportunities within the group and track on a global scale Real-time reporting capabilities identify and manage areas for improvement Leaders can swiftly enhance personal development plans where needed, and use visual succession plans to successfully manage gaps Improved learning outcomes and saving resources Due to the ease of implementation and overall business success of Kallidus Talent, Ultra also chose to implement Kallidus LMS. This is an industry-leading learning management system which enables companies to deploy, manage, track and report on all types of employee learning. We can now find the right candidates for the right roles quickly and effectively. Over 70% of our high level vacancies are now filled internally, which both provides great career progression but also saves us significant recruitment costs.
