The Challenge.

Continental develops pioneering technologies and services for sustainable and connected mobility of people and their goods. Founded in 1871, the technology company offers safe, efficient, intelligent and affordable solutions for vehicles, machines, traffic and transportation. Across the UAE, Continental have over 56 employees and growing.

“We had a lot of manual process, especially leave management which was a big pain. We were using an Excel file on server where we kept track, but the overall process was both very inefficient and quite outdated. We also wanted to have payroll inhouse instead of paying it as a service and we needed a tool for that” Says Continentals HR Manager Middle East & North Africa, Yunus Akaltan.

“Digitalization is a megatrend not only for our industry but for all industries. And in a digital world we are all living in, we wanted to have a solution that fits the necessities and also keeps evolving to enhance employee experience”

“Our team wanted to find a solution with a modern interface, lean, yet effective system. Employee self-service and mobile app support was very important. The right provider was also very important, we wanted to ensure that they were investing into their tools and developing the software, while having a professional solution provider approach” says Yunus.

The Solution.

In July 2019, Continental selected EmiratesHR’s complete solution to automate and streamline the organizations processes while providing an efficient world-class user experience.

“Our initial reaction to EmiratesHR was very positive. Our employees are very happy about the system and found it professional and straight forward which is exactly what we were looking for. Adaptation is very fast and painless so far” says Yunus.

“Since implementation, we already started to benefit from EmiratesHR by using reporting, for source of reliable information. Leave management is now much more efficient, we also gain lots of efficiency during our payroll process”

Yunus explains “We are already planning to roll out the system to further locations we are responsible for, such as Casablanca and Jeddah”

“Continental are very happy with EmiratesHR’s dedication to develop the system, add new features and remain flexible with customer requests”
