North East Autism Society is a registered charity approaching 35 years’ experience in providing autism-specific services. The charity was founded in 1980 by a group of parents whose children were diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). They provide a wide range of services for people of all ages who have an ASC condition in the North East of England, including education, training, employment opportunities, social and leisure activities, residential and short break placements.
A 630 employee business, North East Autism Society was looking for an HR software system to manage its core HR administration including absence management, performance appraisal process, recruiting, training, succession planning, salary analysis, and talent management.
A highly regulated business, North East Autism Society, pays close attention to the training and development of their staff. Particularly important is the ability of the HCM software system to include fields and screens to reflect the Single Central Register, a legislative report which is required by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Ofsted on a regular basis.
Particularly important to them was our experience in HR and the suitability of the HR software solution for not for profit organizations. North East Autism Society was also encouraged by our partnership approach and customer-focused strategy.
North East Autism Society’s Head of HR, Michelle McCairns explains “We selected Talentia for one reason. Flexibility. Both the product and the implementation team. From the start, they have offered a unique opportunity to work with them in partnership, rather than the traditional supplier and client relationship. Their customer-centric approach really made them stand out from the crowd.”
Talentia Software’s Managing Director, Julie Windsor comments, “We are delighted to be working with North East Autism Society. The opportunity to work with more, not for profit organizations and grow and enhance Talentia HCM to better suit the market is great for Talentia.”
