Councils re-sign contracts for HR and payroll systems

East Dorset District Council, Huntingdinshire District Council and Gosport Borough Council have re-signed their contracts with NorthgateArinso to continue using its fully-integrated HR and payroll system.

All three councils have used the Resourcelink service for the last five years.

Phillip Reynolds, head of pay and administration at Gosport Borough Council, said: “This year we decided to update our HR system, as we are keen to invest more in the services we offer to our employees. Through HR self-service, employees can manage some of their own affairs, such as booking holidays online and choosing flexible benefits.”

Val Hunt, payroll manager at East Dorset District Council, said: “We have been very satisfied with the solution’s functionality. It ensures accuracy and punctuality in the payroll, and we are really keen to continue delivering this level of service to our staff.”

In addition, Wayne Channon, HR and payroll systems manager at Huntingdonshire District Council, added: “The council is planning the next stages of growth in the next few years, and facilitating a larger number of employees can be a real challenge.”
