MHS Homes has reported how it moved to a digital HR system during the summer of 2018. The housing provider’s ‘My Space’ is built on MHR’s (formerly Midland HR) platform and enables MHS staff to book annual leave, check holiday balances, submit and see overtime, mileage and expense claims, update their personal details and see pay slips.
Colin McCarthy, human resources manager, MHS Homes, said, “This is about empowering our staff to manage their holiday, personal details and claims wherever they are, whenever they want to.
“Before our introduction of MHR, remote and mobile staff would often have to rely on their managers to book holidays. They were also tied to having to print claim forms and fill them out by hand before taking them into the office.
“We now have a much smoother, paper-free online process. We’re still getting used to using it and although there are still some things to iron out, we’re very pleased that all of our staff are now benefitting from this process.”
