Mission Australia completes another successful salary review using R.Review.
Mission Australia is a wide-reaching community service organisation that has been transforming the lives of Australians in need for more than 150 years. Mission Australia’s 3,500 employees and 1,700 volunteers work together to strengthen families, empower youth, strive to solve homelessness and provide employment solutions. Mission Australia provides more than 550 community and employment services that help over 300,000 Australians each year.
Time to Update the Existing Review ProcessImproving the efficiency and transparency of administrative tasks is important in any organisation and perhaps even more important in a not-for-profit organisation. Every dollar and hour saved can be redirected to helping those in need of the community services Mission Australia provides.
In 2011 Mission Australia recognised a need to improve the management of their annual salary and incentive review process. Their spreadsheet based remuneration review process was time-consuming for those involved, lacked transparency, had no audit trail for governance and was prone to errors. They needed a system that could replace their existing spreadsheet based workflow and reduce the time spent by managers, senior leaders and HR during each year’s review.
Mission Australia recognised the benefits of using a hosted, web-based system that would deliver the efficiency, transparency and cost-reductions they needed without creating any over-head for IT support and infrastructure.
Following an assessment of leading salary review software solutions, Mission Australia selected R.Review from Remesys based on the following criteria:
- Remesys’ cost-effective, competitive pricing;
- The ability to configure R.Review to Mission Australia’s specific requirements;
- Remesys extensive levels of service and support; and
- R.Review’s easy, intuitive interface which greatly reduced the time required for training and change management
The SolutionRemesys worked closely with the Mission Australiaʼs HR Team throughout all stages of implementation from specification of requirements through user-acceptance testing to go-live and throughout the review processes. The Remesys team were available at all times ensuring implementation of a system that delivered all Mission Australia’s requirements, on time and within budget.
According to Glenn Coterill, Remuneration & Benefits Manager in 2011, “I have had the advantage of working with Remesys in a variety of organisations across several industries. In each case, my expectations have risen. They have far exceeded these expectations every time!”
R.Review was configured so that all fields, calculations and screens used Mission Australia’s terminology making the transition to the new system very easy for managers and administrators.
Implementation of R.Review has resulted in a salary review process that was easy for managers, saved time, reduced errors and improved security
An additional benefit is that Mission Australia’s remuneration structure is now contained within a documented, hosted and supported system completely independent of any internal resource or IP. This reduces the impact of any staff changes on the review process from one year to another.
According to Remuneration & Benefits specialist, Camilla Hedlund, who managed the 2012 remuneration review, “For a first time user and system administrator, I found it easy to get my head around and also learnt something new pretty much every time I used the system, which will further improve my approach and the management of the review process next year.”
“Both Managers and the Executive team were surprised how user friendly the system was. They are now very supportive of further expansion and use of the system in our organisation.”
