In this Q&A, we talked to Adam Coleman – CEO & Founder at accredited Business All-Stars HRLocker.

 

========================

# Tell us about HRLocker

HRLocker allows our happy customers to carry out important Human Resources Management functions and concentrate on strategic decisions and productivity instead.

The platform gives everyone in your organisation guaranteed access anytime, anywhere without any new hardware or software requirements.

Having HRLocker is the same as having an extra virtual HR manager. It automates features like timesheets, holiday & absence management, training development, employee data, remote and dual working, performance reviews, and recruitment & onboarding.

# Tell us about your new programme

Irish HR Tech company, HRLocker, recently announced a partnership with ISME and The Business All-Stars to help businesses manage their workforces remotely while supporting a number of key charities through the Covid-19 lockdown.

For every new signup of the HRLocker Dual Working Professional Package, they will donate €100 to The Rape Crisis Centre, Focus Ireland and Alone.

Adam Coleman, CEO of HRLocker, comments, “The crisis is putting a huge strain on every element of society, with the most vulnerable at significant risk. This campaign is about business helping charities. Through a concerted, collaborative effort we can both minimise the disruption on businesses and provide the much-needed support to those who need it most.”

# How does this program help both businesses and charities?

Helping Businesses

The pandemic’s toll on the global economy is unparalleled, with the IMF predicting it will trigger the worst fallout since the Great Depression of the 1930s. At home, a survey by Chambers Ireland shows half of Irish SMEs expect a 60% decline in revenues over the next three months.

For traditional businesses, unfamiliar with remote working and lacking the systems and processes for such a business model, the transition has been particularly difficult.

Some key features of the HRLocker package, which help minimise workforce disruption, include:

  • Project tracking and management using timesheets
  • Clock in & clock out
  • Geolocation clock in and out
  • Logging sick leave (as COVID-19 related)
  • Training requests and certification management

Helping Charities

Meanwhile, the lockdown has created the perfect storm for charities. Reports of physical, emotional and sexual abuse have rocketed since its introduction, while vulnerable individuals, including the elderly, autistic and mentally ill, require greater assistance to cope with the isolation.

At the same time, fundraising activities, have completely evaporated, putting huge pressure on Ireland’s many not-for-profit organisations when they’re needed most.

Rape Crisis Centre, states: “Thankfully, for many of us the lockdown is little more than an inconvenience. Sadly though, for some home is not a safe place. We have witnessed a significant spike in domestic abuse since the introduction of the lockdown.

The funds raised by the HRLocker Programme will prove invaluable in helping us continue to provide support and reassurance to those who need it most through the pandemic. Coleman adds, “Our Charities need our support during this time. I would urge businesses to please give this initiative of business helping business helping charities their consideration.

Every penny raised will go to our charity partners and it stands to benefit everyone, from the vulnerable and elderly, to people in crisis, to companies.”
