Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: HR and IT Consolidation
Pennsylvania is currently in the journey to transition 3,000 information technology and human resource full time employees into the Office of Administration to create a delivery center model. This restructuring will improve services while also reducing costs and streamlining collective efforts. The unified model will also shift HR from a functional perspective to a HR as a business service. Although they're early in the effort, the state has already transitioned several transactional HR functions such as payroll, open-enrollment, off-boarding, and several IT functions like emails, telecom and data centers are already centralized.
