French to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Human Resources
French term or phrase:contrôle de gestion sociale
I wonder if anyone could help with this expression? I've looked through WR, Linguee, etc and nothing seems to fit. The context is Human Resources, an internal document explaining what a new HR IT system that is about to be launched will do in a series of bullet points of which this is one:
"Assurer le pilotage du contrôle de gestion sociale en offrant des possibilités d'analyse et de reporting à tous les niveaux de l'organisation pour l'ensemble de la communauté RH (Group, zones, filiales, divisions...) et en généralisant les bonnes pratiques"
The language is French (France), target UK English.
Thank you so much for your help in advance. I'm sorry I can't offer a suggested translation. I have an idea of what "gestion sociale" could mean, as anyone would, but it would be great if someone who had worked in HR in France and the UK, or who regularly translates in this area, could give the correct term. "Social management" just doesn't seem right...
Many thanks Karen. I have already submitted the work and my client preferred "social management", leaving out "contrôle". Your answer is closest to what they wanted. 2 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Thank you very much for your answer, Manoj. I'm going to wait to see if anyone else answers, although I fear they won't now. I wonder whether this is because it's a stupid question, or because no-one knows? I think your source looks interesting, but I'd feel safer if it was a document produced in the UK... Thank you again.
Reference information: Le contrôle de gestion sociale se situe à la croisée des chemins de la gestion sociale, de la gestion financière et du contrôle de gestion. Sa mise en place constitue un avantage concurrentiel significatif. Le contrôle de gestion sociale s'attache à réconcilier les contraintes financières, les modes de prévisions et de gestion RH au sein de l'entreprise. http://www.cegos.fr/formation-controle-gestion-sociale/p-201...
