14 December 2012

Ceridian has won a contract to provide HR outsourced services, managed payroll and international payroll to Top Right Group, the multi-platform events, information services and b2b media group.

Ceridian UK, one of the UK's leading HR and payroll providers, has won a contract to provide HR outsourced services, managed payroll and international payroll to Top Right Group, the multi-platform events, information services and b2b media group. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

This is an all-encompassing HR and payroll contract that can grow with Top Right Group. We will be delivering managed payroll, including online reporting and payslips, plus P11D in the UK covering 1,200 employees, and international payroll for a further 300 employees across 14 countries.

As part of our SaaS HRevolution solution, we will also be providing Central HR plus recruitment, learning and development and performance management modules.

Top Right Group is also one of the first customers to sign up to our latest HRevolution module, HR analytics, the first business intelligence tool designed specifically for HR people to use.
Nick Laird, chief commercial officer, Ceridian UK

Tracey Gray, people director at Top Right Group, commented:

Key to our Group re-structure earlier this year was the creation of independent operating companies - i2i Events Group, 4C Group, Lions Festivals and EMAP. Each is positioned for sustainable top-line growth with a senior leadership team in place and separate business strategies focussed on the customers they serve.

As part of the HR strategic support to the operating companies, we need to ensure that we deliver a consistent, single source HR service. We chose Ceridian HRevolution and are confident it will help us deliver an exceptional HR service worldwide. A key requirement is to also understand the drivers impacting performance and to help us identify which HR initiatives are supporting business strategy most effectively. We are looking forward to the difference the HR analytics module will make to our business.
Tracey Gray, people director, Top Right Group
