Another leading UK law firm, Freeths, successfully partners with MidlandHR


 
UK award-winning national law firm, Freeths, has successfully outsourced to MidlandHR receiving an end-to-end payroll service and cloud-based Employee Self-Service, part of its wider HR Outsourcing (HRO) offering. MidlandHR has worked closely with Freeths to meet its tight deadlines, successfully delivering services within three months across multiple offices in 11 UK cities.
 
Carole Wigley, HR Director, Freeths says: “We selected MidlandHR due to the quality of its people and services, including the location of its operations. We are pleased that we have met a supplier that was interested in our needs and wanted to support our strategic vision and growth plans. Employee Self-Service provides us with modern best practice processing methods to empower our workforce and drive efficiencies, while the payroll service provides an accurate, reliable and risk-free service to our employees. We needed to move quickly and MidlandHR made this possible, with the first phase of our project going live in 3 months from signing the contract.” 
 
Freeths opted for an outsourced payroll service to enable its internal team to focus on HR strategy and other business priorities. Freeths selected MidlandHR to support it with this vision and strategy through its award-winning HRO service, which is proven among the industry. It has already delivered a clear return on investment and helped the law firm achieve an increase in human resource productivity.
 
“In order to secure this partnership with Freeths, we had to demonstrate our proven best practice methodologies and that we could rapidly replace its incumbent provider, guarantee business continuity and deliver value, which is something our team does daily in any case.” says Matthew Jenkins, Managing Director, MidlandHR. “Freeths was impressed with the precision of our services and power that our cloud solution could deliver in meeting its unique requirements while supporting its HR vision.  It also favoured our partnership approach, including the knowledge and enthusiasm of the project team. We are delighted to be supporting them.”
