SKILLED has one of Australia’s most diverse workforces with its people working in industries as varied as contact centres, major hospitals, manufacturing facilities and coal mines. With such a range of skilled employees, working in such distinct industries across the entire geographic footprint of Australia and elsewhere in the world, its payroll and human resource management solutions required a game-changing solution. This is drawn into sharp focus considering SKILLED pay up to 15 000 employees per week and a massive 60 000 unique individuals over the year, complying with 632 industrial instruments with a total of over 3000 pay runs annually.
SKILLED aimed to transform Payroll, Invoicing and Finance processes, structures and systems to enable “world’s best” service delivery and support SKILLED Group’s growth targets.
