Link Group has signed a five-year contract for iTrent, MidlandHR’s ‘talent management’, workforce planning, HR and payroll system. iTrent replaces Link’s previous 15-year old system which was outdated and for which product support is due to be withdrawn during 2011.
Pat Macmillan, human resources manager, Link Group, said, “We were particularly impressed by iTrent’s manager and employee self-service functionality which will work towards refreshing a number of simple, repetitive HR processes, creating a more seamless workflow and enabling the devolvement of some HR administrative duties to line managers.
“Self-service will help our managers with up-to-date information on their own teams, including sickness, absence and performance reviews, thereby giving them the ability to manage their own staff to a greater extent.”
The core HR, payroll and absence modules went live in February 2011 for Link’s 350 employees, with the remaining modules including self service and recruitment due to be operational by the end of 2011.
