Cygnus 349x349-1

Dan Bresnahan

CFO, Cygnus Academies Trust

Over the past 16 years I have experienced varying levels of service from many different payroll and HR providers. HR Connect is by far the very best! Their professionalism and outstanding customer service put them head and shoulders above the rest. The process of switching payroll and HR provider can be a daunting task to undertake. However, the dedicated onboarding team made this a seamless transition for our Trust. Successfully consolidating eight primary schools with just over 425 employees under one payroll and HR provider/platform. Their combination of iTrent and ServiceNow systems allow me to easily manage both payroll and HR functions across the Trust. I highly recommend HR Connect to those looking to achieve both value for money and the best customer experience.

Westminster 349x349-1

Shastha Bibi

Business Manager, Federation of Westminster Special Schools

We are a Federation of two special schools and a Bi-Borough Inclusion Service. We onboarded with HR Connect in May 2022. The team who supported the transition from one payroll provider to another were amazing! HR Connect are able to provide support with even minor queries and have provided a bespoke service taking into account the different facets of the Federation. I have no hesitation in recommending this payroll provider. Their online portal is easily accessible and easy to use – and support is available when required.

KKB Testimonial

Ray Parrott

HSEQT Manager, KKB Group

We engaged Staff Care Services for our biennial health surveillance following a recommendation from Medway Council. We worked closely with them to devise a tailored programme for our employees. They went the extra mile to schedule as many appointments as they could in the time available during our 'Back to Work' training sessions at the start of the year. The feedback from all those checked was that the Occupational Health Nurse, Sam Delaney, was really approachable and put them at ease. In all, it was a most professional service, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else embarking on a health monitoring programme.

Nick Webb

Waste Services Manager, Commercial Services Group Managing Waste

I have found Staff Care Services to be extremely professional in their approach to the service they provide as well as flexible in realising our facilities have to be operational at all times, it was very much a “work with you” approach to organising appointments with many staff member commenting on how relaxed they were made to feel which will hopefully encourage them to participate in future examinations. I would highly recommend their services.

Wessex LMCS Testimonial

Julie Thornley

Business Manager, Wessex LMCS

As our initial point of contact in onboarding to EmploymentCheck, Abbie Ambrose provided us with great confidence that HR Connect/Cantium were the right partners for us. Abbie's professional yet relaxed approached has been most welcome and it was a pleasure to talk with her about the options available to us without the conversation being dominated by a sales pitch. Likewise, Richard Anderson clearly holds a wealth of information and knowledge about the online system. We were very impressed with his knowledge and ability to translate this into the initial online demonstration he provided about the system .

Stour Academy Trust Testimonial

Tommy Cullen

COO, Stour Academy Trust

As a Trust we couldn’t be supported more than we have been by HR Connect, their services are always of high quality and on time. We couldn’t ask for anything further, and the service they deliver is of a strong calibre.

Mark Harris

Director of Finance & HR, Kent Catholic Schools' Partnership

HRConnect have been a valued partner of KCSP since our first academy conversion in January 2014, supporting us with the on-boarding of all 25 current academies with more in the pipeline. They have a detailed understanding of the working of schools and the contractual position as it applies to both teaching and support staff. Their ability to support our schools with on-site meetings is highly valued by our school leaders. They keep us appraised of emerging legislation and support us with ad hoc requests as needed, most notably audit requirements. Their staff are friendly, knowledgeable and above all accessible, helping us to manage our organisation through regular meetings. KPI’s are well defined and reported on with a high standard of delivery against target. HRConnect are without doubt a valued and trusted partner who I would highly recommend to anyone looking for similar services.
