Northgate HR was the favourite, and once the contract had been signed the payroll was fully implemented and rolled out to The Racing Post Group’s 200+ employees within a month. Northgate HR ensured that the payroll was up and running quickly to minimise disruption for employees during the split from Trinity Mirror.
Northgate HR carried out a due diligence exercise, scoped out the project, built the payroll, tested it and made it live, all within a month – much to the satisfaction of Mark Francis, finance director at Racing Post Group: “The quick and successful implementation of our payroll has helped us clear some hurdles in the process of separating from our former owners. Being able to pay our staff in a timely manner, without creating a headache for our internal finance team or uncertainty among staff, has made the transition very easy, and we have Northgate HR to thank for that. The team was committed to turning the project around quickly and, especially considering the Christmas break was included in the period, exceeded our expectations.”
Malcolm Aldis, managing director at Northgate HR, commented: “We’re pleased the roll out of Racing Post Group’s payroll has gone so well, and look forward to extending the service to cover other HR processes as the relationship develops.”
