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.
How People First helps
- Identify, attract and retain the right talent, manage performance and strengthen skills
- Keep mobile workforces connected, engaged, aligned and motivated, ensuring peak performance
- Cloud-based, mobile-first, single HR and payroll platform designed to build a more resilient workforce
- Real-time payroll to reduce admin, costs and risk while boosting accuracy
- Integrate easily into finance systems to break down silos and make more strategic, data-driven decisions
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.
Empower your people
People First puts an entire HR and payroll system in your people’s pockets. No matter where they are, mobile employees can connect with colleagues, managers and HR. They can take more control of their everyday working lives, and learning and development.
People First payroll provides real-time processing and visibility of data, increasing the efficiency of tracking overheads and better resourcing planning. Reduce admin, cost and risk by minimising mistakes from human error with an always accurate view of your data.
Easier compliance, better security
With a single database underpinning all HR and payroll operations, People First reduces the risk of security breaches and human error caused by collating multiple data from different platforms - supported by an ISO 9001 and 27001 accredited supplier.
Maximise HR infrastructure efficiency
People First replaces the inefficiencies and complexities of operating a variety of people systems with the simplicity of an integrated platform for all your HR and payroll needs.
