Case study: Elmbridge Borough Council
Serving around 135,000 residents and businesses across Surrey, Elmbridge Borough Council has over 450 employees and delivers a full range of local government services including, environmental services, parks, and recreation.
Learn how they saved nearly 800 working days on enquiries and enhanced their employee experience with MHR.
“I really value the increased flexibility and accessibility you get with iTrent. I could be on
holiday in Majorca and using my phone I could process expenses, claims, leave requests – whatever I need. For the end user, this speeds up workflows and makes everything more accessible and useable – a great improvement from our old ERP system.”
Neil Jones, ICT Lead at Warwickshire County Council
"Thanks to MHR, our new solution was deployed 100% online, without any face to face contact. We could not have achieved this without the flexibility of iTrent, the MHR team and the Cherwell District Council and Entec Si joint partnering.”
Teresa Reed, HR and Learning and Development at Cherwell District Council
“ Working with MHR is really easy; they work as an extension to our team.”
Organisational Development Officer, Elmbridge Borough Council
West Lothian Councils implementation of iTrent has seen many challenges and no bigger than the unprecedented global pandemic. The organisation has had to go live with a new payroll and HR system whilst dealing with national lockdown restrictions and the introduction of remote working, both for employees and our supplier MHR.
Throughout the implementation, MHR have been able to support the council, provide guidance, steering and allow the council to introduce a new critical organisation wide system to employees and partners, all whilst done remotely.
No mean feat!
