Speakers from public sector share HRIS experiences at Softworld


Softworld HR and Payroll exhibition 2003

Visitors to the Softworld HR & Payroll event (3-4 March 2004, Grand Hall, Olympia, London) can hear how two government organisations have successfully implemented HR and payroll systems across the board.

Following a Welsh theme, this year’s educational programme features case study presentations from both The National Assembly for Wales and Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council.

Delegates to the first session will learn how The National Assembly for Wales replaced its existing HR system to allow staff to maintain their own personal records online. Using the system, nearly 4000 staff and managers are now able to keep their own personnel records up to date. The new system forms part of the Assembly’s strategy to devolve some of HR responsibility to line managers and individual members of staff, automating administration procedures, and increasing accuracy of personnel data.

Tony Bracey, HR Systems Manager at The National Assembly for Wales will host the hour-long session today at 11.45am. We interviewed Tony prior to his seminar – read the full case here on HR Zone.

Tomorrow, Gareth Caple, Payroll Manager at Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council will tell delegates about his experiences of implementing an integrated e-HR and payroll system.

The council, which is the second largest Unitary Authority in Wales, is responsible for paying over 15,000 employees covering several organisations of which Rhondda Cynon Taff Council is the largest with approximately 14,000 employees.

Despite tight timescales (six months in fact), Rhonda Cynon Taff achieved successful live runs on all 18 payrolls in April 2003 (including those of outside organisations). The full range of e-HR modules are now being rolled out across the entire authority, including schools, under control of the Local Education Authority.
