MHR’s iTrent helps Blue Square combine people, technology and data
Blue Square is a brand engagement agency that grows sales, increases loyalty, and builds love for some of the world’s biggest brands.
The agency connects audiences with brands by harnessing the power of human touch in the physical and virtual world using insightful data and frictionless technology in the moments that matter.
With over 400 employees, Blue Square is a culture-first organisation that puts people experience at the heart of everything, making the selection of their next HRIS even more important.
With their current HRIS up for renewal, they recognised that their needs have greatly changed since its implementation in 2017 requiring a solution that would keep up with their future-growth and longer-term requirements.
They needed a system that could handle payroll across the UK & ROI, with a particular focus on timesheets. They also needed a system that could handle rota planning and scheduling, saving their management teams’ valuable time.
iTrent’s modular design enabled them to pick and choose from a range of solutions including manager dashboards, onboarding, rostering, interactive payslips, and legislative modules including GDPR and Republic of Ireland payroll.
Employee experience was a top priority so selection of the employee self-service modules including the iTrent chatbot and mobile platform were a great fit meaning no matter where they are, their people will be able to manage their own employee journey.
Natasha Rose, People Director, Blue Square Marketing said: “We have a unique approach to brand engagement which relies on a mix of short-term and long-term talent from across the UK and Ireland. iTrent helps us ensure that everyone gets a consistent experience while also freeing up the time of the HR team to focus on the activity that adds value. This will help us grow further while also boosting employee engagement across the entire team."
Anton Roe, CEO, MHR said: “iTrent’s flexibility and ability to handle even the most complicated of payroll systems makes it a great fit for a company with needs as diverse as Blue Square’s. iTrent will add value for years to come and support Blue Square in their plans for growth. We’re proud to support Blue Square as they continue to deliver incredible brand engagement campaigns for their clients."
