Antenna International partners with MidlandHR for global HR and payroll contract


Antenna International is the leading supplier of technology, multimedia and audio content, and related services to the world’s artistic, historic, and cultural institutions. Their products enable cultural tourists and museum visitors to see more clearly, understand more deeply and appreciate more widely the world’s cultural treasures. MidlandHR will enable Antenna’s HR team and workforce to deal with its own basic HR, talent management, and payroll transactions via iTrent’s Manager and Employee Self-Service modules.  

MidlandHR will deliver a single view of Antenna International’s global workforce. This will allow the organisation to manage their talent and take care of its people through one single platform instead of various disparate systems. iTrent’s single database design will enable advanced people analytics and management information across the globe. This will support Antenna with developing enhanced workflows and business processes so that its HR team can focus on supporting the business more strategically.

MidlandHR’s HRO Centre will also be responsible for handling most of Antenna International’s global payroll. It will ensure compliance is maintained internationally and that payroll best practice is followed across the globe.

Candice Shulman, Global Director of HR & Organisational Effectiveness, Antenna International says “It was important for Antenna to partner with a supplier that would enable it to manage international HR operations cost-effectively from one platform. It was also essential to identify a solution that provides support for management reporting, HR workflows, and improvements in business processes, while taking payroll off our hands all together.  Working with MidlandHR will enable our team to focus on more strategic aspects of HR, geared towards nurturing talent and growing the global business.”

“Today’s HR and payroll landscape is increasingly strategic, complex and burdened with legislation. However, business leaders who partner with the right suppliers are able to provide strategic insight and value to their organisations while ensuring compliance is adhered to, increase employee engagement and reduce costs,” says Matthew Jenkins, Managing Director, MidlandHR. “We are delighted to have partnered with Antenna International. We have spent a lot of time getting to know their business and people to ensure that we provide the best possible service to meet their global requirements, and we look forward to this partnership developing further.”
