Emap has outsourced all HR, payroll and benefits delivery to NorthgateArinso as part of its wider strategic plan to outsource all IT, finance and HR services, enabling the firm to focus on its objectives for growth.
Key elements of the outsourced package include self-service, which enables staff to manage their own affairs, from booking holidays to reporting sickness. Managers are then encouraged to take responsibility for following HR procedures in their own teams, using the self-service functionality, which is supported with an advice line.
All of Emap’s HR processes will be integrated on one platform, creating a central database that will provide integrated business information via an intuitive dashboard display. This will give Emap’s senior team the workforce information they require for accurate decision-making across the business.
Emap’s performance director, Tracey Gray said: “Outsourcing the HR, flexible benefits and payroll functions to a single, consistent point of contact will not only free-up managers’ valuable time, but will ensure all HR processes are supported by a single supplier from the day the employee starts in the business to the day they leave.”
