Founded in 1997, the Norwich-based company works on a variety of domestic and commercial projects throughout the East of England – supplying roads, sewers and groundworks to developers and contractors on both a regional and national level.
The firm currently employs over 170 staff and possesses a recruitment vision to expand this to a 250-strong team over the next few years. It was therefore vital that they invested in an easy-to-use, modern HR solution to support the organisation through this key period of workforce growth.
After thorough marketplace research and a selective shortlisting process, Bateman Groundworks opted for a range of Cascade’s modules, comprising Core HR, Self-Service, Workflow, Recruitment, Training, Online Recruitment and Mobile Apps.
Commenting on the catalyst for change, the firm’s HR co-ordinator Frankie Yallop explained: “With an increased emphasis on data protection and the new GDPR legislation, a solution with assured compliance was a big driving factor when choosing our new HR software. Also, with our old system, sifting through multiple reports for the correct data was a major resource drain on the team – we wanted a system which made it simpler for the department to keep in control of personal data and generate value-adding reports at the touch of a button.”
In addition to its main headquarters, a number of external site offices also exist in the Norfolk and Suffolk areas. Frankie added: “We needed a system which not only met the needs of our main office, but those of our off-site bases too, and Cascade’s cloud technology will allow us to engage all employees – whether in-house or field-based.”
Currently in the early stages of the project, the next few months will see Cascade’s focus shift to data migration and staff training, in preparation for the planned roll-out of the new system in June 2018.
