Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year From IRIS HCM!

By Sam Thomas | 23rd December 2016 | 2 min read

It's been a jam-packed year for us here at IRIS HCM, from the launch of the new division and new product launches, we've certainly been kept busy.

Earlier in 2016, IRIS Human Capital Managed was born. Combining a range of well-known brand, including IRIS SME, KashFlow, Cascade HR, Octopus and 12Pay, IRIS HCM now serves over 40,000 businesses across the UK.

The vision of IRIS HCM is simple:

“To be the employee engagement engine, making the HR process flow, enabling our customers to focus on employee experience rather than employee administration”

With this in mind, we’re investing heavily to help ensure legislation compliance within software.

New Software Galore!

We’re always thinking ahead here at IRIS HCM and 2016 was no different. So much in fact, there’s been not one, not two, but three brand new software packages released to help businesses manage new legislation and save time as easily as possible.

IRIS Holiday Pay Module

As a result of court rulings since 2014, the way businesses in the UK need to calculate holiday pay for their employees is changing. The IRIS Holiday Pay Module provides a flexible solution, allowing the user to define how the payment should be calculated. Individual pay elements can be selected, future-proofing the solution, should other payment elements be affected in the future. This gives the user full control over the calculation.

Self-service HR has seen a boom in recent years, with many companies now managing their HR duties online through a centralised portal. This brings with it increased levels of efficiency, communication and employee empowerment. Employee data is safe and secure, as the usual over-reliance on paper is heavily reduced.

IRIS HR helps you comply with the latest employment legislation and also enables you to manage your employees more efficiently through online, self-service HR software and delivers the level of quality and reliability that thousands of businesses across the UK have come to expect from IRIS.
