Congratulations to Sara Lee Procurement Director Patty LaValle-Jones, who is featured in an HRO Today article for achieving 30 HR initiatives that resulted in a whopping $35 million in cost savings.
A major part of those HR initiatives was absence management. An outsourcing partnership with Reed Group produced $10 million in savings. Here’s what she had to say in the article:
Sweet Success: Sara Lee’s procurement director knows the ingredients for cost savings. By Debbie Bolla
“It was a challenge to outsource and a long project to get an idea of how we were doing, figuring out what our future state would be, understanding where the gap was, and then finding a supplier to support us,” she explains. “There were a lot of lean processes to go through, driving to the end result we wanted.” And that end result? An outsourcing partnership with Reed Group, producing a little more than $10 million in savings.
