ActivHR Consulting Ltd
M&H Plastics and People Inc.

M&H Plastics are to adopt the People Inc. HR software application.

M&H Plastics specialise in the production and decoration of high-quality plastic bottles, jars, flexible tubes and closures.

M&H Plastics were reliant on a home grown Microsoft Access database, along with information from their payroll package (IRIS Earnie) to provide information for HR and needed a HR software solution that would do more than their existing systems were able to. They were very keen to ensure that data entered and updated within the HR software was able to be easily and quickly transferred to their payroll package.

M&H Plastics operate a variety of shift patterns including some complex paid and contracted overtime rules. Although they did not want to implement a full Time and Attendance solution, People Inc. offered them the opportunity to automatically calculate contracted premium shift rates for their employees, ensuring that all of the values were current and easily accessible. This allowed for these base rates to be transferred to payroll through a modified standard import routine, where overtime hours could then be recorded against the standard pay rates transferred.

During the implementation we also set up all employee records from a combination of data held in payroll, the existing database and Excel spreadsheets to avoid lengthy re-keying of information into People Inc., meaning that the implementation was quick and cost-effective.

People Inc. includes all required HR functionality accessible from within the one database application, covering self-service, core HR, absence & holiday management, training administration, recruitment and performance management.
