People First Hub

You can securely store all your HR data in one place and access full organizational information such as reporting lines and compensation in the People First Hub. While much of the platform is pre-shipped meaning a fast set-up, you can also build out custom cards to store any additional people-related information you need like travel or equipment data. Employment terms and conditions are easily accessible to all users and each employee has complete visibility of their salary and benefits. In built notification means that the right information reaches the right people at the right time, while our Digital Assistant reduces once-complicated tasks to a simple conversation via their smart phone.

With no set up required and everything you need to reach candidates; you can start recruiting for people straight away with the People First recruitment module. Our intuitive candidate portal allows job seekers to search the jobs they are interested in before completing a simple application process all from their mobile phone. Pre-built job matching functionality allows you to easily compare and find the most suitable candidates, while pre-shipped emails allow you to keep the candidate informed every step of the way. Once a candidate has accepted an offer you can even onboard them early introducing them to their new team and the company way ahead of their start date.

Talent Management

People First is a powerful talent management tool for employees, managers and HR. It provides the opportunities for personal growth, which helps to motivate staff and show them that they are valued. Real time check-ins are a key feature of People First, replacing the annual appraisal process. The platform simplifies the entire check-in process, enabling you to schedule conversations, record outcomes and visualise employee progress. The succession planning tool allows you to easily identify the talent pool within your business and design suitable development plans to help you fill key roles. Employees can also map their own career paths and identify the skills and qualifications they need to realise their ambition.

Workforce Management

People First gives you the tools you need to capture time and attendance data quickly and accurately, no matter where and when your people work. Employees clock their start and end time, including overtime through their smart phone, and with geo-tracking, employees can even record their location when checking in. Once the information has been submitted, it is sent automatically to their line manager for approval. Approved time and attendance information can be sent directly to payroll, creating a seamless link of accurate data.

Managed Payroll Service

Our managed payroll services offer 99.99% accuracy ensuring your employees are paid accurately on time, every time. This fully automated-service is backed up by a centre of CIPP qualified payroll professionals who provide their expertise and recommendations, spotting trends and potential costly pitfalls for your business.

Do you already have a third-party payroll provider? Don’t worry – our platform can integrate with your existing platform, providing a seamless user experience and simplified process.
