GCVS adopt People Inc. HR

Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector, the main development agency and advocate for voluntary and community organisations in Glasgow, have adopted People Inc HR by P&A Software.

GCVS works with the voluntary and community sector to listen and respond to their needs, help them reach their potential, play a full role in Glasgow and raise their profile and develop a voice. When GCVS first came into being in 1972, it had 40 members and a board of directors which included the late Donald Dewar. Now, over 600 voluntary-managed organisations in Glasgow count themselves as members of GCVS.

GCVS needed to act quickly as their aged personnel system had been ear marked for replacement due to difficulties in using it daily and struggling to find ways in which it could add any tangible operational value.

Pam Moran, HR Manager at GCVS said that any new proposed HR software system would be assessed on its accuracy of data, overall usability and how well it could assist in automating general day to day HR administrative tasks. With this in mind, the new system had to have the capability of being accessed by Line Managers, allowing them not only to access employee data but to have their own specific 'action lists' for employee related tasks such as their personal involvement in probation reviews, holiday authorisation and performance appraisal activities.

The incumbent HR software system wasn't able to offer any automation of tasks using workflow technology and wasn't capable of capturing data and delivering process throughout the organisation in key areas such as recruitment, training administration or performance management.

People Inc HR was selected by GCVS because it's capable of recording all necessary employee data, has comprehensive standard functionality and is flexible in its design so could be enhanced and further configured over time.
