Fusion Practices


Jul 2, 2024

Implementing Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) in phases is a strategic approach that allows organizations to manage change effectively and in timely manner. Dividing HCM modules in phases depends on the size of Project like number of Countries/Regions involved in Implementation. In an ideal scenario HCM should be implemented in the 3-phase approach.   

Phase 1:  

Core HR and Self Service module is the base for Oracle Fusion HCM successful implementation. It includes features like: 

  • Organizational Management: Allows organizations to set up and manage their organizational structure including departments, positions and job roles. 
  • Employee Management: Helps manage employee records, including personal information, job details, and employment history. 
  • Self Service: Enables employees to manage their own information, such as contact details, benefits enrollment, and time off requests. Managers can also perform actions related to their team members, such as approving time off. 

Absence Management module helps organizations effectively manage employee time off. It includes features like: 

  • Absence Types: Allows organizations to set up different types of absences, such as sick leave, PTO, maternity leave and others. 
  • Absence Plans: Helps organizations create and manage absence plans, which define the rules for accruing and using time off. 
  • Absence Tracking: Enables organizations to track employee absences and ensure compliance with absence policies. 

Phase 2:  

Talent Acquisition and Recruitment module is designed to streamline the hiring process. It includes features like: 

  • Job Posting: Allows organizations to post job openings on various platforms, including job boards, social media, and the company’s career site. 
  • Candidate Tracking: Helps track candidates throughout the hiring process, from application to offer acceptance. 
  • Offer Management: Facilitates the creation, extension, and acceptance of job offers. 

Talent Management module helps organizations manage employee performance and plan for future talent needs. It includes features like: 

  • Performance Management: Enables organizations to set performance goals, conduct performance reviews, and provide feedback. 
  • Goal Management: Helps employees and managers to create, track, and align goals with the organization’s objectives. 

Benefits and Compensation module helps organizations attract and retain top talent by offering competitive benefits and compensation packages. It includes features like: 

  • Benefits Administration: Allows organizations to set up and manage a wide range of benefits, including health insurance, retirement plans, wellness programs and others. 
  • Compensation Management: Helps organizations design, manage, and communicate compensation plans. It supports various types of compensation, including base pay, bonuses and equity etc. 

Phase 3:  

Payroll module is a critical component of Oracle Fusion HCM that ensures employees are paid accurately and on time. It includes features like: 

  • Payroll Elements: These are the building blocks of the payroll system. They represent different types of earnings (like regular pay, overtime), deductions (like tax, insurance), and benefits (like meal vouchers). 
  • Payroll Processing: This involves calculating the net pay for each employee for each pay period. It considers various factors like earnings, deductions, taxes, and benefits. 
  • Payroll Reporting: This feature allows organizations to generate various reports related to payroll, such as payslips, tax reports, regulatory reports etc. 

Learning and Development module helps organizations develop their employees and keep their skills up to date. It includes features like: 

  • Learning Catalog: This is a repository of all learning items, such as courses, webinars, and videos. Employees can browse the catalog and enroll in learning items of their interest. 
  • Learning Plan: Employees and their managers can create a learning plan that outlines the learning items an employee needs to complete to achieve their career goals. 
  • Learning Progress Tracking: This feature allows employees and managers to track the progress of learning items. It provides insights into the employee’s learning journey. 

Each phase involves configuration, data migration, testing, training, and go-live. After each phase, a review is conducted to ensure that the implementation is successful and to plan for the next phase. This phased approach provides flexibility and allows organizations to prioritize based on their unique needs. However, it requires careful planning and execution to ensure success.
