  • Strategic partnership enables CoreHR customers to access consultancy expertise to more effectively implement HR technologies that fully deliver on business objectives

CoreHR, a provider of cloud-based HR and payroll solutions, has entered a strategic partnership with Mercer in Ireland. Mercer delivers advice and technology-driven solutions that help organisations meet the health, wealth and career needs of a changing workforce.

This partnership enables organisations to unlock more value from their HR investments through a more effective alignment of HR strategies, programmes, processes, and service delivery models with CoreHR technologies.

Commenting on the partnership, John Mercer, Career and Health Leader at Mercer in Ireland noted, “The world of work is changing rapidly and this is causing employers to carefully examine how they can achieve success through the union of software, employee experience and talent strategy. That’s why, maximising the full value and return on investment in HR technology is essential. By joining forces with a leading provider of smarter HR solutions, such as CoreHR, we will use our global HR consulting and transformation expertise to help open the true benefits of CoreHR’s technologies for its clients”

“However, unlocking the full potential of CoreHR requires much more than competent deployment,” said Mr Mercer. “Clients need a partner that can help empower HR to drive their business forward. As the world’s leading HR consulting firm, Mercer has the right people with the right expertise to help, right from the start.”

CoreHR and Mercer will work together to help clients implement HR technologies that are aligned with a people strategy designed to support broader business objectives. CoreHR continuously evolves their technology with innovative new features, so customers will always be able to benefit from more effective ways to engage with their workforce. The latest version of CoreHR, due for general release this January, will see the launch of Social Onboarding. This hyper-connected capability creates a collaborative environment for employees and new hires by connecting them with the right information at the right time and helping them build their formal and informal networks to establish the relationships they will need to be successful.

“Our solutions are designed to help unleash people power across organisations, but technology cannot drive change by itself. Organisations also need the right people strategies to ensure the new technology is welcomed by employees and provides value for management. This is why we are thrilled to partner with Mercer to help our customers take a more holistic approach to implementing our technologies,” said Dean Forbes, CEO, CoreHR.

Forbes continued, “Together, we will help organisations drive the effectiveness of HR by ensuring the right processes are in place for the technology they invest in, to fully support the business strategy.”
