When it comes to human resources, companies face many challenges. One of these concerns the legislative changes that have multiplied in recent years. For example, employers are still looking for recommendations on salary-related bonuses. They want to establish them with confidence to retain talent while optimizing their payroll costs. Another more striking example is that of the implementation and monitoring of partial unemployment during the crisis. † More than ever, companies are looking for advice and a guide to alleviate this pressure. » explains Pascal Cieslewicz,Director at Securex.
Another major challenge for employers is payroll. Some structures with up to 200 people handled this part internally. With the Covid and the absence of certain employees, this process has sometimes been undermined. “So the strategic focus has shifted at many of these companies and we’ve seen strong demand to take on this role. Finally, today’s companies face a tight market and struggle to attract experts who can make the link between theory and practice. They also have to deal with the digitization of certain HR tools and their experiments with more or less efficiency.
International expertise at the service of local companies
Thanks to its team, the company Securex is able to face these various problems and provide answers. “Our employees can support companies, from SMEs to multinationals, that lack the necessary resources to ensure the management of this human aspect and make the link between local regulations and HR policies. †
The Securex group, founded in 1905 in Belgium, has strengthened its presence in Luxembourg. 20 years ago, with an emphasis on operational human resources. The Luxembourg entity takes care of the legal follow-up in social law, salary calculation, HR consultancy, mobility (vehicle fleet management) and the delivery of an HRIS (System of HR management information). Thanks to the group’s presence in countries such as Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Spain, Securex also manages international salaries. A problem that is exacerbated by the introduction of teleworking. “We are ready for the end of the freeze on bilateral agreements with neighboring countries, because we are active in the latter. †
Strengthen its role as a multi-service partner
Excellence, commitment, trust, respect and team spirit are the values on which Securex employees base their support. “We are used to working hand in hand and combining our skills to serve the customer. The latter can rely on a contact person, who is in close contact with other services: legal, mobility, HR experts, etc. Making our range of skills available to companies is part of our DNA. This reassures our customers ††
In order to best meet the HR needs of companies in Luxembourg, the company has developed its range of services over the years. “We started as a payroll company. Over the past four years we have evolved into an ‘HR Business Partner’ and want to strengthen this role. If the payroll service still allows us to respond to a first request today, our other expertise offers the possibility for these companies to tackle several of their problems in parallel: managing INFPC files, drawing up a car policy or having of a tool High-performance HR , especially. †
More than ever, companies are looking for advice and guidance.
For Pascal Cieslewicz, this “global HR advice” is therefore essential to help clients who believe they only have a regulatory need. What the company wants is to ensure the link between theory and practice. This approach is particularly reflected in the creation of OFFICIENT, an HR tool. “Innovation doesn’t scare us. About ten years ago we were one of the first to offer electronic payslips. Although the concept had not found the desired success in the market at the time, our teams tried to improve the product, which today is a standard solution for a very large majority of our customers (95%). †
OFFICIENT is aimed at VSEs and SMEs and strives to be user-friendly, fluid and adapted to the Luxembourg market. In addition to employee data management, it also includes leave and expense reports, performance, and the ability to electronically and electronically sign any useful HR document. “This tool can also be integrated into our payroll system, which automatically retrieves the necessary information. The employee, for his part, has easy access to his leave via his smartphone. Simple and efficient design and technology come together”, exults Pascal Cieslewicz.
People and services at the heart of the strategy
Headed the company for two years,Directorwishes to be part of the continuity of its predecessor and underlines the role of Securex as a recognized player for global HR services. “We not only want to be seen as a reference on the market, but also want to bring happiness to our employees. Our wish is that they enjoy working here and gain skills. We have the DNA of a training company and don’t hesitate to teach our talents the profession†The latter, trained in self-organization among other things, enjoy a certain freedom to organize their working time while retaining their responsibilities towards customers. This approach, as well as the participative and transparent management favored by the company, enable it to cope with a low turnover (less than 5% over the past two years).
Today, the ambition is to shape the company’s strong growth.
