MHR has been selected by Hendy Group, the family-run car dealership with over 160 years of experience, to deliver HR, recruitment and onboarding, and payroll services through its iTrent solution.

Hendy Group has been in operation since 1859, and is currently run by the fifth-generation of the Hendy family. It has dealerships across the south coast of the UK spanning Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey and Kent, offering new and used car and van sales as well as servicing support.  

The company was looking for a single, feature-rich HR solution that could be easily adopted across the business and help to streamline the existing fragmented people, talent and payroll processes. MHR’s iTrent system provided the integrated solution Hendy Group was seeking. Through MHR’s use of Microsoft’s Power BI tools, the solution also offers the business improved reporting capabilities with stronger Managed Information (MI) and data visualisation. 

Hendy Group currently has over 1,700 colleagues but as a growing company it needed a solution that was scalable and could match its future plans.

Sarah Martyn, People Director at Hendy Group, said: “Hendy Group has been in operation for more than 160 years. We are a forward-looking organisation with ambitious plans and as our business continues to grow, we recognised that we needed to streamline our HR solutions to meet the needs of our more than 1,700 colleagues. With MHR, not only can we benefit from a single, integrated HR system, but the opportunity to form a partnership with another family-run business where we can work collaboratively to support our growing team over the years ahead.” 

Anton Roe, Chief Executive Officer of MHR International said: “As a family-owned business, we could already see we had a lot in common with Hendy Group. We are pleased to be supporting this long-running business as it embarks on the next stage of growth. Hendy Group was looking for a single solution to streamline HR, talent and payroll, but one which was also easy for its teams to adopt. iTrent is perfectly positioned to offer exactly what the business is seeking.”
