Addressing the challenges facing professional services
From accounting to architecture, professional services companies rely heavily on employees who are often distanced from central teams. Business success is dependent on keeping your remote workforce connected, engaged, aligned and performing to their best. That means supporting, empowering and unifying them, no matter where they are.
You need an HR and payroll system that attracts and keeps the talent you need to thrive. One that optimises your mobile workforce’s engagement and productivity, while maximising employee visibility so that you can deliver the right support and resource planning.
How People First helps
- You can identify, attract and retain the right talent, manage their performance and strengthen their skills
- Your mobile workforce is kept engaged, aligned and motivated, ensuring they can deliver peak performance from anywhere
- You can gain greater workforce visibility to target relevant support, avoid skills gaps and inform better strategic decisions
- Cloud-based, mobile-first, single HR and payroll platform designed to connect all your people and help you build a more resilient workforce
Why People First is right for the professional services sector
With so many professional service company employees working remotely, they can easily feel isolated, disconnected and demotivated. From there, it’s a short step to productivity fall-offs, rising absenteeism and increased employee turnover.
Keep everyone, everywhere, connected
People First’s engagement functions bring everyone together, with features such as daily briefings, news feeds and weekly newsletters. The platform’s intuitive interface provides an engaging, social media-like experience. Personalisation features let people make their experience even more individual.
Increase engagement with more support
By giving HR better visibility of mobile employees you can spot signs of potential disengagement and provide relevant support. Features that keep remote workers connected include check-ins with managers. Further support is provided by geolocation technology to safeguard the safety of employees working and travelling on their own.
Empower your people
People First puts an entire HR system in your people’s pockets. No matter where they are, mobile employees can connect with colleagues, managers and HR. They can take more control of their everyday working lives and longer-term professional learning and development.
Increase the value of your data
People First enables you to derive more value from your workforce data. By giving you more visibility and making your data easy to understand, the platform automates the identification of potential issues and increase the efficiency of your resource planning. Gain key insights and transform HR into a driver of better business decisions.
Easier compliance, better security
With a single database underpinning all HR and payroll operations, People First eliminates risks of security breaches and human errors that accompany collating multiple data sources from different platforms. You have the reassurance of working with an ISO 9001 and 27001 accredited company.

The Plan Group
"I was spending 10-15 hours a week on HR issues - that's 70-75% of my work time. People First has cut this to 45-50%."
"I needed to get back time for me and everyone else in the business. Straightaway we've got over 3 days back per month on payroll alone."
