Hello my name is Eve Adu-Bofour and I’m a HR business partner for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
and I’m Peter Reeve, I’m the head of human resources at the MND Association.
We will be presenting at the 2015 CIPD HR software show. We are a national charity, we promote research for a cure for MND, we campaign and raise awareness and we also improve care for people with MND. We also fund raise and we more recently know for the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’.
We spent a great deal of time working on what we wanted as an organisation and how we wanted Cascade to work, so that we produced a really comprehensive invitation to tender document. It talked about how we wanted the system to run, how we wanted reports to run and how we wanted the link with payroll to run.
So our watch word for the conference will be Prepare, Prepare, Prepare! Make sure you understand what you want and make sure that you’ve really thought about how the system will work before you even start to talk to suppliers.
What we will also be doing at the conference is giving you some examples of the sorts of paperwork and processes that we went through so that hopefully you can take those away and use them in your own organisation as you plan for your own implementation.
If you’d like to hear more about our journey, in terms of implementing Cascade and delivering our HR system, then we will be presenting at the CIPD HR Software Show on Wednesday the 17th June at Olympia at 10:30, we’d love for you to come along!
