New partnership will give the charity better oversight of talent and performance data to improve people management and employee experiences

The only UK charity dedicated to providing specialised nursing care and support needed by young people, Teenage Cancer Trust, has partnered with MHR International, the HR, payroll, finance and analytics expert, to digitalise and streamline its HR functions in a bid to improve people management and employee experiences.

The implementation of MHR’s software solution will replace the charity’s reliance on spreadsheet- based processes and other systems that has made it difficult to inform decision-making in the past. Teenage Cancer Trust, which currently employs over 150 people, will also benefit from joining up its siloed talent data, relieving its HR department of time-consuming administrative tasks and gaining a better overview of employee training needs and broader skillsets.

Through a vast array of new HR functionalities and rich, real-time people insights and performance evidence, the charity aims to improve its programmes in the following areas:

  • Recruitment and onboarding: MHR’s solution will support the anonymous recruitment process to help attract skilled and a diverse talent pool; as well as provide positive onboarding experiences that put individuals front and centre for maximum retention.
  • Learning and development: Real-time performance analytics and enhanced team collaboration will help managers identify transferable skills, training needs and personalise learning paths to increase employee engagement.
  • Inclusion and diversity: As well as utilising anonymous hiring, in-depth people insights will help ensure the charity is an inclusive workplace adhering to its equal opportunities policy and providing clear development and career progression for all.

Anton Roe, Chief Executive Officer of MHR, says: “We’re proud MHR has been chosen by Teenage Cancer Trust to modernise and streamline their HR processes. Uncovering a breadth of new employee insights will help the charity create a more connected, productive and diverse workforce. We look forward to seeing the results and growth of our partnership.”

Mary Jones, Head of HR at Teenage Cancer Trust, adds: “The functionality that MHR’s platform offers has been on our wish-list for quite some time, and the solution itself is one that can grow with us. By gaining real-time analytics capabilities and rich data on the effectiveness of our initiatives, the HR team will further support the growth of the charity and the value of services that we offer.“
