NYON, SWITZERLAND—beqom —the leader in cloud-based total compensation and continuous performance management solutions—today announced the successful deployment of its solution at Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (SEB), one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious financial institutions.
The bank selected beqom to replace their partly spreadsheet-based processes and manage total compensation for their 16,000 employees across 20 countries. They sought to align global rewards processes, reduce time spent on administrative tasks, and compile compensation data from many different sources that could be accessed as needed by managers and other stakeholders to support informed decisions on a daily basis.
According to Mattias Bergman, Process Owner Variable Remuneration C&B at SEB, “We have a diverse, growing, and highly regulated business and needed a comp system that could cater to our needs, handling both global and local requirements. Our previous system relied on many exceptions and manual workarounds that were time consuming, introduced risk, and created compliance challenges. We’ve been running our total compensation processes on beqom for over a year now, and it has saved our HR comp team a lot of time, reduced risk, helped standardize and align our processes, and provided a great experience for our users. The feedback from stakeholders—managers, HR partners, CFOs in the businesses—has all been very positive.”
