Payroll & HR Software For Accountants and Professional Services

Keeping your mobile workforce engaged, aligned and motivated

Addressing the challenges facing professional services 

From accounting to architecture, professional services firms rely heavily on employees who are often disparate to provide support to your clients. Business success is dependent on keeping your remote workforce connected, engaged, aligned and performing to their best. That means supporting, empowering and unifying them, no matter where they are. 

You need an HR and payroll system that attracts and retains the talent you need to thrive. One that optimises your mobile workforce’s engagement and productivity, while maximising employee visibility so that you can deliver the right support and resource planning.

Why People First is right for the professional services sector

In many professional services firms, remote employees can easily feel isolated, disconnected and demotivated. From there, it’s a short step to drops in productivity, rising absenteeism and increased employee turnover. With People First, it's easy to prevent this.

Keep everyone, everywhere, connected 

People First’s engagement functions bring everyone together, with features such as daily briefings, news feeds and weekly newsletters. The platform’s intuitive interface provides a social media-like experience with personalisation features for more tailored experiences.

Increase engagement with more support 

With better visibility of mobile employees, HR can spot potential disengagement and provide relevant support. Keep remote workers connected using check-ins with managers, two-way conversations to support development, and recognitions to show hard work is valued.
