One of the most prestigious colleges in the UK has invested in new HR technology, as it prepares for another year at the pinnacle of education.

King’s College, Cambridge has invested in a new cloud-based HR system from Cascade, complete with core HR, Workflow, Self-Service, Recruitment, Mobile Apps, Auto Enrolment and fully-integrated Payroll modules.

Founded in 1441 by King Henry VI, this historic institution has over 100 Fellows, and a further 275 members of staff. With such a large roster of staff, the team recognised the need to increase efficiencies and empower managers with intelligent and insightful  data to better support colleagues.

A six-strong project team; comprising the First Bursar, Assistant Bursar, Personnel Manager, Personnel Assistant, Payroll & Pensions Clerk and Computing Manager; ended their software search with Cascade.

Commenting on the investment, King’s Personnel Assistant Eve Rednall MCIPD said: “Cascade came highly recommended by colleagues so, whilst we of course conducted our own due diligence and evaluated competitor products, this solution met all of our requirements, fell within budget and had that all-important independent endorsement from our peers.

“We’re currently in the data migration phase, with a view to conducting a phased roll out of the software in the spring. The core HR should be up and running in early 2018; we’ll complete dummy payroll runs in April and May, then aim to go fully live in June.”

Elaborating on the new relationship with King’s College, Cascade’s Product Director Paul Sparkes said: “With a high-profile alumni including renowned names ranging from mathematician Alan Turing to comedian David Baddiel, King’s has an enviable reputation. The employment and retention of the finest calibre of employees will prove key to upholding this.

“It is great to see such esteemed and well-established organisations thinking carefully to keep their HR strategies fresh and we look forward to supporting them on their journey to introduce increased automation as well as added-value.”
