Grant Thornton spends £3m in move to cloud HR services

Financial advisory firm Grant Thornton has begun a £3m project to deploy cloud-based technology to manage and develop its workforce, as it gears up to expand its operations in the UK.

The firm is investing in talent management and learning technology that will allow it to track the skills its 4,500 strong workforce in the UK, and to manage their professional development programmes.

“We really needed a system that would allow us to know who the talent is, where they were, and how they were being developed and trained,” said Simon Lanham, HR transformation director.

The advisory firm plans to replace its seven-year-old HR and payroll system, supplied by Midland HR, and a range of stand-alone packages and spreadsheets used for employee appraisals, salary reviews, and learning management with cloud based software.

It is investing in Workday’s cloud-based talent management and HR software, a learning management system from Cornerstone, and ResourceLink payroll software from Northgate.

Moving these tasks into the cloud will make the HR systems simpler to use and will eliminate having to re-key data, saving Grant Thornton in the UK an estimated 4,500 person days a year.

The project work will pay for itself within a year, by freeing up the time partners and employees currently spend on HR administrative tasks for fee earning work, said Lanham in an interview with Computer Weekly.
