Their mission is to empower lives and improve access to healthcare guides for everybody, allowing them to enhance and better lives every day.
In Ireland, Sanofi was facing rising contingent worker costs across their business. Before engaging Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS) and CXC, Sanofi’s approach to contractor workforce management was leading to inflated margins, non-compliant practices and process inefficiencies. Prior to CXC, Sanofi was utilising another payroll partner in Ireland, which had been creating worker disenchantment.
They needed a new model – one that enabled them to lower contingent worker costs and remain competitive and compliant within their industry.
In August 2017, CXC partnered with AMS to provide compliance, contract and payroll management solutions to Sanofi for their PAYE workforce and future hires, located in Ireland.
CXC engaged with contingent workers, providing a seamless and efficient onboarding process, mitigating risk for the client. A transition phase project was completed to bring all current resource across to CXC payroll along with all new requests leading to a successful implementation of service.
In September 2019, AMS requested CXC’s support to provide a similar solution for Sanofi’s UK business, leading to the UK programme commencing in October 2019.
Key services CXC provides to AMS Sanofi include:
- Sanofi Helpdesk – a dedicated team to support Ireland and UK solutions
- Compliance, contract and payroll management
- Welcome pack created to assist contingent workers during the registration process
- Streamlined onboarding activity
- Efficient and secure online contracts process

CXC provides these services in conjunction with, and as part of, the Alexander Mann Solutions model who manages the end-to-end recruitment process for business units within the Sanofi Group
CXC’s solutions have delivered enhanced visibility, compliance and governance controls to Sanofi. This has resulted in business risk mitigation for Sanofi across Ireland and the UK.
