Connells Group powers up payroll and leadership with NGA HR services deal

NGA HR signs 7-year HR cloud contract with leading UK property services provider, Connells Group

NGA Human Resources (NGA HR), the HR and payroll provider, today announced a seven-year deal with leading UK-based property services provider, Connells Group. Connells Group will now rely on NGA HR’s cloud-based solution to support its rapid business growth and digital transformation projects.

Connells Group, with nearly 600 estate agency branches across the UK, has chosen NGA HR’s SaaS ResourceLink software to integrate its HR and payroll systems, standardise working practices, improve internal processes, and significantly reduce operating costs. The software incorporates a number of modules for the modern workplace and now encapsulates the entire employee lifecycle, from recruitment to staff development and succession planning. Key features include: workforce management and compliance; time and attendance tracking; talent management and appraisals; payroll and pensions; reporting and analytics as well as self-service modules for employees and managers.

“As a successful and expanding Group of companies, we need a scalable solution that is as efficient as possible;” comments Richard Twigg, Connells Group Finance and Commercial Director. “The sophisticated ResourceLink software means we can replace old processes, like paper payslips and manual spreadsheet uploads, and crucially allows us better management information on things like new joiners, leavers and movers.

“We’re delighted to be working with Connells Group” says Mark DeBono, sales director at NGA HR. “Our cloud-based software ensures that Connells will remain compliant and that they save time and money by eliminating data inputduplication. The reporting and analytics functions will also ensure Connells Group continues to stay on track with its market-beating KPIs and performance metrics.”
