Irish human resources software firm HRLocker has announced it will create 50 new jobs as demand for its services increases due to the pandemic and the continued reliance on remote working.
The Lahinch, Co. Clare-based company will double its staff numbers with the new hires, which will mostly be made in its sales and marketing division.
“We are expanding our sales and marketing team to bring more support to new and existing customers,” HRLocker chief executive Adam Coleman said.
“Our investment in product development and customer support will allow us to continue innovating and configuring our platform to meet the unique HR needs of the market going forward.”
HRLocker offers cloud-based software to help businesses automate administrative some parts of human resources, with tools for performance management, absence management, continuous, professional development and timesheets.
It has also launched a number of remote working features in recent months, including geolocation long-ins, contactless clock-ins, employee self-service and digital noticeboards amid pandemic-related demand for such services.
“With remote and dual working now the norm for many organisations, business leaders are now looking for technologies that enhance employee experience and minimise disruption,” Mr. Coleman said.
“In 2020, we saw a huge rise in HRLocker platform users and early figures indicate that trend is going to continue.”
“The expansion of our team will enable us to continue delivering great software solutions, that connect businesses and their people, at scale.”
