MidlandHR Launches New Guide to HR and Payroll Shared Services

MidlandHR publishes a new guide to HR and payroll shared services in the public sector
Released: 25th January 2012
Publisher: MidlandHR

Nottingham, 25 January 2012 – MidlandHR, a leading supplier of talent management, workforce planning, HR and payroll solutions, has today published a new guide to HR and payroll shared services in the public sector, following independent research carried out at the end of last year.

The research, HR and payroll shared services in the public sector – perceptions and realities, explored the opinions of over 100 UK public sector representatives, from functions spanning HR, payroll, finance, purchasing and IT.

The aim of the guide is to offer an informative introduction to HR and payroll shared services in the public sector, covering everything from who can benefit, to partner relationships and presenting the business case. It also looks at the different models available as well as the cost savings, challenges and timeframes.

Karen Bull, product strategy manager at MidlandHR, comments: “The research conducted in late 2011 provided us with an excellent opportunity to clear up any myths about shared services and in conjunction with our direct customer experience, consultation with experts in the field and general market research, provide a complete guide for public sector organisations. The guide gives a comprehensive overview of the shared service models and the many benefits they can bring, highlighted by case studies taken from our own customer base.”
