Swissport recently enlisted the services of Ceridian to build a more engaged workforce, optimise payroll and streamline its workplace operations

Swissport is known throughout the world as a leading independent provider of airport ground services and air cargo handling. 

Evidently, that means looking after a huge workforce, consisting of more than 55,000 employees serving almost 300 airports across the globe. 

It comes as little surprise, therefore, that Swissport recently chose Ceridian’s market-leading Dayforce platform to help build a more engaged workforce, optimise payroll and streamline workplace operations. 

“With the growing complexity of managing today’s boundless workforce, Ceridian’s momentum in the EMEA region is accelerating as more large organisations like Swissport choose Dayforce to help simplify their HR processes and drive efficiencies,” comments Wendy Muirhead, Managing Director for EMEA at Ceridian.

“Dayforce is uniquely suited to help Swissport futureproof its global HR organisation within a single solution across their growing global operations.”

Swissport: Unlocking efficiencies

Swissport was looking for a comprehensive solution to improve efficiency, consolidate HR and payroll systems across multiple regions, and deliver a modern, self-serve mobile experience for its employees. 

By partnering with Ceridian, a global leader in human capital management (HCM) technology, the company is equipped with the tools necessary to elevate its people operations.

HCM processes will be modernised with a single, cost-effective system for workforce management and timely, accurate payroll. 

Dayforce will also help Swissport manage compliance across multiple geographies at scale and drive value through access to real-time, data-driven insights while streamlining existing manual processes. 

Leveraging the Dayforce platform’s single data architecture, Swissport is set to unlock efficiencies and standardise people processes on a global scale, including managed payroll and workforce management, to deliver a complete cloud HCM experience. 

Swissport and Ceridian’s partnership comes hot on the heels of the latter announcing a bold rebrand to Dayforce in the new year. 

From January, the business will adopt the name of its flagship product, demonstrating a willingness to become more streamlined from a marketing perspective and assure a more memorable, overarching identity. 

Dayforce has long been ranked as a market leader in the HCM field thanks to a rich history of innovation and excellence, consistently delivering value to thousands of global organisations and millions of workers.
