UK manufacturing experts, Conservatory Outlet Group, has continued efforts to reduce its carbon footprint by investing in a fully-automated, paperless HR system.

The move to the new system, which comes on the back of record levels of growth for the business throughout 2019, see’s all of Conservatory Outlet’s HR functions centralised into a bespoke online platform, removing the need for excessive paperwork and filing.

Now with more than 230 employees across seven sites, following the acquisition of a digital marketing agency this autumn, the automated system has allowed Conservatory Outlet to streamline a number of processes and reduce the need for additional admin support.

With an ever-increasing workforce, the new system also provides staff members with a self-service function, allowing for increased visibility on things like; upcoming shifts, hours worked, holiday entitlement and personal details.

The dual-purpose move to the new system allows Conservatory Outlet to continue their commitment to reducing carbon emissions, whilst improving several key business functions.

Karen Starkey, Head of HR at Conservatory Outlet, said she was delighted to have the new system in place:

“We’ve worked tirelessly in recent months to ensure the new system was installed without any issues. The move achieves a number of key business goals and, crucially, furthers our ambition of being one of the most environmentally conscious businesses in Yorkshire.

“The benefits of the new system are virtually endless, decreasing our reliance on manual data handling and removing the likelihood of human error. We look forward to making continual improvements to our HR function over the next twelve months.”
