Law firm introduces HR self-service and better capital management reporting

Browne Jacobson has implemented a new human capital management system, allowing employees self-service access to a number of functions, including HR records and holiday requests.

The Midlands-based law firm brought in the software, provided by COA Solutions, to store, update, access and process HR and payroll information more efficiently and accurately. It also offers improved reporting functions.

Kelly Tatton, HR systems advisor said: “Management is able to more closely monitor HR issues such as absenteeism. We have also tailored the HCM system to assist with recruitment. By recording the assessment scores of potential trainee solicitors at our Open Days, we can easily produce a series of reports which analyse their performance and suitability for our business. This has helped us to shape our recruitment strategy and make more informed employment decisions, ensuring we remain a leader in our field.”

The company plans to expand self-service to allow employees access to automated probation period reviews and information relating to absence and self-certification.
