- Two first places went to Management and IT consultancy MHP at this year‘s WirtschaftsWoche Best of Consulting Awards
- Special Female Consultants award for activities promoting diversity
- Brose customer project: winner in Digital Transformation of HR
- Further awards in Finance and Technology for other projects
Ludwigsburg – For the twelfth time in a row, management and IT consultancy MHP found itself on the winners' podium at WirtschaftsWoche's "Best of Consulting" awards. This time, too, the company picked up a total of four awards, three of which were for successful MHP customer projects. As Stefano Esposito, partner at MHP puts it: "Even though this is the twelfth time we've been involved and have taken home prizes every year, it’s still very special to gain recognition for our performance. We owe this to the tireless efforts of our employees and the close cooperation with our partners and customers. I’m particularly proud of the Female Consultants award, which we received for our work and activities promoting diversity. For me, mixed teams play an overriding role because they are drivers of innovation. And, of course, they also make us a more attractive employer."
And it was these diversity measures that bought one first place for MHP at the Best of Consulting Awards this year. They included, in particular, the promotion of women’s careers within the company and the compatibility of family and career, which the jury regarded as exceptional. Responsibility for diversity at MHP lies with the manager in the field of Organization & Strategy (ORS), Katharina Baumann.
Yet another award for Project HR 4.0 at Brose Fahrzeugteile
Another first place came in the special category “Digital Transformation” for the HR project at Brose Fahrzeugteile. This is the second time the team from MHP has won an award for the Brose customer project. Earlier this year, they received the SAP Quality Award for the digitalisation of the automotive supplier’s HR processes. The decisive factor was introducing the SAP SuccessFactors cloud solution, which created the technological prerequisites for holistic HR digitalisation worldwide. Today, over 26,000 employees at 65 locations in 23 countries benefit from harmonised and digitalised HR processes.
Customer projects at TRUMPF and Syntegon also received awards
In the Technologies category, the customer project at TRUMPF for digital reference architecture was given a very positive verdict by the WirtschaftsWoche jury. MHP has developed an Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) as a target-orientated framework, so the machine manufacturer will be able to position itself as a provider of digital products and services on the market in future. EAM provides a holistic approach to designing business processes and the IT landscape. This can guarantee optimal alignment of IT with the specialist departments based on the corporate strategy. The major benefit for TRUMPF will be improved IT resilience. The architecture will also relieve pressure on the IT budget, while at the same time increasing the potential for innovation.
The next award for Porsche subsidiary MHP came in the finance category. This one was for their customer project at Syntegon Technology, which supports the company-wide Value Creation Programme (VCP). The main objective was maximising value creation in the finance department using intelligent automation solutions. MHP’s automation and reorganisation of finance at Syntegon Technology is based on a standardised process model. What made this project exceptional were the 13 automation concepts that were established as standard in 15 entities on three continents.
