MidlandHR gives The Children's Society a helping hand with integrated HR and payroll

London, UK, 20th April 2006 –

The Children’s Society has chosen an integrated HR and payroll system from Midland HR & Payroll Solutions , in a contract worth £176,000 over 7 years. The charity plans to roll out all modules of the Trent software solution in-house, while outsourcing payslip printing and BACS processing to MidlandHR.

Currently using separate HR and payroll software, The Children’s Society felt that it would benefit from an integrated system that could increase efficiency and provide better board level reporting.

“As part of our three year business development plan, we looked at ways that we could improve our HR processes,” says Debra Ellis, personnel services manager at The Children’s Society. “By integrating payroll and HR data, we can create a single view of our 800 employees, providing us with valuable management information. The Trent system also allows us to reduce administration time and focus the team’s efforts on more strategic HR activities.”

By November 2006 The Children’s Society plans to have fully implemented the core HR, payroll, absence monitoring and recruitment modules, followed by self-service and learning & development in 2007.
