‘Sysper2’ is the European Commission’s Human Resource Management information system. It covers the vast majority of corporate HR processes such as career management, appraisal and promotion, organisation chart, mobility, entitlements, staff obligations and ethics, time management, competence management and resource allocation. It is a permanent challenge to ensure the smooth operation of the European Commission, given its size and complexity (around 36,000 staff of more than 27 nationalities, in multiple locations around Europe and the world). HR is a modern change agent and strategic partner, allowing the Commission to achieve its objectives, with lower levels of HR staffing and without losing sight of the wellbeing and motivation of the personnel. ‘Sysper2’ is in this context a cornerstone for staff empowerment, administrative simplification and HR professionalisation in the European Commission.
The investment costs have been carried by the European Commission – the system owner, while other European Institutions and agencies can use the system, only paying for the cost of the additional service. ‘Sysper2’ is an example of a successful convergence initiative, aligning business and IT. It has enabled more efficient, effective and transparent HR business processes and led to the rationalisation of the IT system’s portfolio. Moreover, the benefits of the investment are being shared with other European Institutions who can profit from the service the Commission is offering to deploy, run and support the system for the interested institutions.
