Zalaris ASA has signed a five-year contract with Statkraft, the Norwegian state-owned energy champion. The agreement, referred to in Zalaris' Q1 report, now includes operations for more than 3 000 employees globally.
Statkraft, Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy, has chosen Zalaris to deliver a wide range of transactional HR services, including payroll services, to their approx. 3 000 employees globally. 2 300 employees in Norway, Sweden, UK and Germany will receive full BPO services (business process outsourcing), including payroll and localization of global scope.
"Zalaris expands with this its footprint into new geographies such as Germany and UK. Statkraft is another customer giving Zalaris the trust supporting not only their local needs, but also their global business requirements", says Hans-Petter Mellerud, CEO and founder of Zalaris.
The global scope includes all Statkraft’s locations across Europe, South America, and Asia – including their strategic geographies such as Brazil, Chile and Turkey.
The parties have agreed to a five-year contract of which the first phase of the delivery is set to November 2017 and onwards up to June 2018.
“We are proud and happy that Statkraft has belief in partnering with us, and we look forward to working together”, Hans-Petter Mellerud says.
Zalaris announced in March its strategic expansion into Germany through the opening of its first German office. The company now has ability to deliver HR services all over the Northern Europe, including the German speaking parts of the region.
Late 2016, the Norwegian Railways (NSB) separated some of its subsidiaries in conjunction with reforms in progress, and chose Zalaris to deliver HR and payroll services to its employees. Statkraft is another large state-owned company selecting Zalaris as its preferred partner.
“This underpins our ability to support large complex organization being strictly regulated”, Mellerud states.
