NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IRIS Software Group (IRIS), a leading global software provider of accountancy and payroll solutions, is today announcing expanded human resource offerings for the Americas. The new capabilities include Global HR consultancy (HRC) and enhanced HR software enabling organizations headquartered in the Americas to seamlessly scale HR operations with confidence in global compliance.
An increasing number of organizations are hiring remote global talent to fuel growth and reduce costs. But this expansion results in heightened complexity for HR teams who must manage employees across language barriers, ensure compliance with local jurisdictions and understand cultural norms. IRIS utilized its decades of experience in the payroll and HR space to expand its HR solutions to build upon payroll offerings and allow organizations to benefit from global expansion while reducing the complexity of global workforces.
The IRIS HRC launch provides expertise across compliance, benefits, compensation, immigration and more to help organizations expanding their global footprint to rapidly unlock talent investment by reducing time to value. Organizations benefit from a multi–country HR support partner with workforce management expertise in 135 countries that works as an extension of the team to provide the confidence to resolve complex HR questions and boost productivity and employee engagement through the full employee lifecycle. Businesses are assured they remain compliant and can avoid expensive fines, tax penalties, costly lawsuits and reputational damage to ensure sustained global growth.
Enhanced IRIS HR software allows professional services firms to offer clients comprehensive HR tools to help find, grow and manage employees. Firms can expand their value-added client service offerings with HR solutions as they scale, including applicant tracking, employee onboarding, benefits enrollment, vacation requests and more. The outcome is the ability to make a more significant impact on their clients and the lives of their employees.
Audra Bright, Human Resources and Internal Systems Senior Manager at Textile Exchange says, “Without IRIS, we wouldn’t be able to recruit the talent we’ve been able to. It makes it so much easier to pull reports, house documents, and find what I need whenever I need it. The process is so much more streamlined, and I never have to deal with paperwork getting lost.”
Jim Dunham, President and General Manager, IRIS Americas says, “Enhancing global workforce management for efficiency and profitability is crucial for modern organizations. Our expanded software and services empower seamless HR management, allowing firms to focus on value-added activities. We continue to engage with our clients in the Americas to deliver more flexible solutions that drive growth.
