Operating throughout the UK, the construction industry employs 3.1 million workers, approximately 10% total of the country’s employment rate. Construction output in the UK is more than £110 billion per annum and contributes to 7% of GDP.

Playing an integral part of the UK economy, the industry is home to over 280,000 businesses, with a quarter of UK production being within the public sector and the remaining three-quarters privately. However, with such paramount importance, construction companies have a reputation for completing projects under tight deadlines and limited resources, leaving HR departments who manage multi-site operations feeling overstretched.

This is where Natural HR’s all-in-one HR and payroll software can help you better manage your people, create automated and paperless processes while making smarter business decisions.

What are your ongoing challenges?


Absence management

The risk of accidents and injury is naturally higher, simply because of the nature of the work. Coupled with sickness and timesheets, keeping track of absence management is key.

Paper-based processes

In this new world of digitalisation, companies have had to adapt and transition to the ‘new normal’ by adopting a paperless HR approach.

Legal requirements

There are a great deal of legal requirements that HR needs to stay up-to-date with and enforce to ensure compliance in the organisation, including the management of health and safety, on-site demands and workplace regulations.

Health and safety restrictions

Adjusting to current and potential changes to health and safety regulations, HR is responsible for restriction of working hours, modified payroll and contract challenges.

Payroll complexity

Due to varying contractual arrangements, i.e. part-time and subcontractors, coupled with tracking rates of pay and working hours, HR can face an uphill battle with payroll.

Talent recruitment and retention

With unemployment rates sky-rocketing, HR needs to scour through thousands of applicants to find qualified and certified workers while keeping their current workforce happy to avoid labour shortages.

Proven to deliver

Natural HR is used by hundreds of businesses across multiple countries around the globe, including Breyer Group, a renowned construction speciliast.

The challenge

With 400+ employees, the company’s HR director, Anne Dyer found herself overseeing the day-to-day management of the business, everything from recruitment and on-boarding to general staff enquiries.

The benefits

“For the staff that use it day-to-day for absence management and their managers; the feedback we’ve had has been positive. It’s an easy system to use and that’s what we wanted.”

The solution

“When we were looking in the marketplace, we found massive differences in offerings between the different systems available with regards to what you get: what’s included, what isn’t, what training you get.”

The future

Anne and her team have a bit more work to do before they’re fully underway, but just by setting up their processes, workflows and triggers, they can already see the massive impact of Natural HR.
