Solving the workforce challenges of the tech sector
With highly mobile, dispersed workforces, it’s a challenge for technology companies to keep everyone engaged and motivated, support their wellbeing and connect them to the company culture. Especially given the industry’s consistently high rate of employee turnover.
Tech businesses need an HR and payroll system that connects, supports and engages mobile workforces. One that gives managers a clear picture of how their teams are performing and automates manual processes like payroll – enabling HR to focus more on creating meaningful change.
How People First helps:
- Your employees feel engaged, empowered and valued, making your organisation a place where talented people want to work
- As a single integrated platform that connects everyone, People First enables you to maintain your company culture
- Improve the user experience and optimises productivity by equipping your mobile employees with easy access to the right tools
Why the tech sector needs People First now
For technology companies adapting to today’s increasingly fluid working environment, People First is the most intuitive, modular, fully integrated, mobile-first HR and payroll platform available.

Support your teams
People First supports your mobile workforce. Employees can arrange check-ins with managers, while managers can track their teams to ensure nobody’s overlooked. Our geolocation technology can be used to strengthen employee safety when they are working alone or remotely.
