Employment Hero is an online human resources (HR) platform that combines various HR functions into one centralised self-service portal, helping Australian businesses navigate the complexity, and reduce the time spent managing HR related issues.
Watson Blinds and Awnings, marking its 50th anniversary this year, is one of more than 900 customers benefiting from Employment Hero this year.
“Since the introduction of Employment Hero, we have reduced time spent on payroll data entry from eight hours to two. We have introduced new technology that enables our employees to access their information on their mobile devices. As we continue to grow our business, having a cloud payroll system will allow us to capture accurate information and process pays seamlessly”.
“In the past, our employee on-boarding process has involved lots of form filling for our employees – tax file declarations, superannuation declarations, bank account details forms, emergency contacts and hard copies of employment contracts. Employment Hero does all of this without the need for paper. In addition, it’s a more positive on-boarding experience for employees, which I’m sure will make us more appealing to the next generation of employees, the majority of whom are digitally savvy” said Raymond Watson.
Established by John Watson in Canberra, the business is now owned and operated by John’s sons Raymond and Kevin. Succession planning is underway, with the third generation Rohan, Tim and Amanda Watson, buying into the business. We are working closely with the Watson family and their accountant to help them manage a smooth succession and realise their retirement goals.
Supporting businesses such as Watson Blinds and Awnings, so they can focus on their day to day business, aligns with our commitment to helping Australian businesses grow and succeed in a changing world.
