Online service for human resources

IFA network Group 300 is offering an internet-based tool to help advisers with their human resources&#39 responsibilities.

The Evolution 300 package allows IFAs to manage their HR requirements by enabling them to maintain employee records and audit trails online. It can be used to create terms and conditions contracts, letters, health and safety documents and staff handbooks.

It includes a facility that allows employees to make holiday requests online with an email sent to a manager who can decide whether to agree the holiday request.

The package will be available at £10 per employee per month initially to Group 300&#39s network of 200 RIs. It will then be rolled out to company clients before being made available to the whole market.

Group 300 is based in Cambridge and was formed from the Advice Store Group in January. It offers conference services and a specialist compliance consultancy and business and HR consultancy. It is to launch an online adviser tool in the next six months.

Operations director Lucy Batten says: “Changes in employment legislation have meant that any employer with more than two staff has HR responsibilities and this is a way for employers to protect themselves. It will be particularly relevant for IFAs.”
