Client Success Story

Pernod Ricard

Client Profile

Pernod Ricard is a leader in premium wine and spirits. An international company with a large portfolio of premium international and local brands. Functioning in numerous markets, Pernod Ricard employs close to 19,000 people worldwide.


Operating in over 80 markets, Pernod Ricard was keen on transforming their HR by streamlining their payroll processes. They were looking at professional payroll service providers capable of centralising their HR operations, with the desire of consolidating their payroll data across South East Asia.


Links International was chosen for our expertise with over 20 years of professional HR outsourcing experience in Asia. After partnering with Links, the HR team at Pernod Ricard further looked into optimising their workforce management, centralising their HR functionality using Workday HCM.


With Workday HCM, Pernod Ricard could combine all HR information to one location, pulling information from other specialist HR software and vendors to provide a single source of truth.



For Pernod Ricard being able to scale their payroll model to support their business growth, ensuring increased payroll accuracy, efficiency and security of data were crucial.  Given the project was catered towards serving their South East Asia payroll, there were 2 possible approaches to integrate with Workday – Pernod Ricard could:


  1. Buy multiple local payroll systems, hire payroll administrators to process payroll in-house and attempt to build the Workday integration in-house OR
  2. Leverage a good payroll outsourcing services company with Workday/payroll integration experience.


Pernod Ricard’s need for multi-country support made outsourcing their payroll to a service provider with regional capabilities a much quicker and cost-effective option.  Working with Links their payroll partner of choice, Pernod Ricard had access to 100% in-country client support and could rely on Links’ expertise easily integrating their payroll with Workday.


Using Links’ Workday integration solution, Pernod Ricard was able to consolidate their payroll data transfer resulting in increased efficiency and accuracy in payroll processing and reporting.  The centralised process also eliminated duplicative payroll processes, minimising human error in data transfer and cut lag time.


By employing  Links’ payroll outsourcing services, Pernod Ricard had professional Asia payroll guarantee, outsourcing all regulatory filing, taxes, pension contributions and statutory reporting to a team of in-country experts improving their compliance, payroll governance and providing peace of mind.


Ultimately the partnership enabled Pernod Ricard to achieve a scalable payroll model that was future proofed for growth, seamlessly integrated with Workday and most importantly helped Pernod Ricard achieve their HR transformation and development of their industry leading HR function.
