Helping you deliver quality services
When delivering services to local communities, great employees are your most valuable asset. Keeping them engaged and motivated is increasingly challenging, particularly given the multi-layered structure of today’s workforce.
For councils under pressure to meet their objectives despite funding cuts, reducing employee numbers may seem like the only way to bring costs down.
That's not the case. The alternative is a HR and payroll system that enables you to maximise the contribution of your people for greater cost efficiencies, improved engagement and increased productivity.
We can help you with:
- Reducing your administrative burden and streamlining processes to deliver improved service levels for your community
- Reducing costs, improving accuracy and driving efficiencies with automated processes to eliminate error and minimise risk
- Ensuring compliance and security through MHR’s state of the art infrastructure

Payroll your people can rely on
We understand that councils need to support a diverse, multi-role workforce, with complex pension schemes and other benefits you need to calculate for weekly and monthly pay cycles.
iTrent’s comprehensive payroll software, integrated with a suite of HR solutions in a single system, enables you to manage everything in one central place.
Automating every aspect of your payroll calculations reduces manual processing and human error to ensure that everyone is paid accurately and on time regardless of their roles and location.
Flexible HR to support the public sector
With iTrent, you choose the HR software solutions you need to support your workforce. Whether you need to improve your recruitment and retention in the midst of public sector pay freezes, provide access to employees on the move, or reduce the number of queries your HR team receive, iTrent's scalable modules can help you.
Our cloud-hosted HR and payroll platform features employee self-service, allowing your people to update their records, access payslips and request holidays when they're out and about. With development and training functionality, as well as HR digital assistants, avoid spending hours on time-consuming admin and find cost efficiencies to focus on what counts.
Take the stress out of pensions
With inbuilt statutory calculations, iTrent can provide reporting to bodies such as Teachers’ Pensions, Local Government Pension Scheme and Scottish Public Pensions Agency.
We also provide a Pension Data Service, which looks after your data and manipulates it ready for submission. We can do all the hard work for you while you keep control of the submission, ensuring you never miss a deadline.

“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
UK insurance broker, Swinton Group, has recently undergone a transformational HR project which is predicted to save over £1.7m in the next five years. This was part of a bigger programme designed to modernise IT systems and achieve cost efficiencies across the whole business.
“ 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!
