 Statoil has decided to outsource certain tasks within the Human Resources (HR) function, and awards two new contracts to external suppliers.

The number of full time positions in Statoil in Norway that will be affected is 69, in addition to 10 positions internationally. Around 2/3 of affected employees will be offered employment with the new vendors, either through transfer of undertakings or offer of employment.

Increased use of outsourcing to external vendors is aimed at strengthening Statoil’s competitiveness. Previously in 2014 the decision was made to outsource services within IT, facility management and finance & control. The transfer of these services to new suppliers are currently ongoing.
 
 “After a thorough process and evaluation, we have concluded that there is a solid business case for outsourcing within HR. The close cooperation with the two selected suppliers will further enable us to strengthen our cost competitiveness and flexibility. As a global energy player, we must ensure that these services are available across time zones and borders, and at the same time have a justifiable cost level ,” says Torgrim Reitan, chief financial officer in Statoil.
 
The suppliers chosen are Alexander Mann Solutions for HR Recruitment and Zalaris  for HR Operations.The suppliers will commence their work during spring.
In November 2013, Statoil sent out invitations to tender for these services.  The bids have now been evaluated through a thorough procurement process.
 
“Statoil ASA has long experience of outsourcing. More than 60% of the services provided today by our internal business service provider is through  external suppliers.  We will use this experience  to look after our employees in the best way,” says Reitan.
