Contract terms

Manage different work arrangements with ease

Working arrangements in the charity sector are often far from straightforward. That can make even every-day tasks, such as calculations of entitlements to paid time off, a real headache for busy HR teams.

Cezanne HR is designed to take employees on multiple contracts or different working time patterns in its stride. From automated calculation of leave or TOIL to routing authorisations to the right people, Cezanne HR dramatically reduces HR admin overheads, ensures data accuracy and makes HR simpler for employees too.

Training and development

Stay on top of skills and qualifications

Whether you want to proactively encourage employee development or evidence appropriate training and certification, Cezanne HR makes that easier too. It lets you bring together and report on employees’ skills and qualifications, manage supporting documents, set up development plans, track course completion and much more.

Where certificates or training need to be renewed, automatic reminders ensure everyone knows when critical dates are coming up, whilst Cezanne HR’s integrated performance management module supports a focus on continuous development.

Employee engagement

Boost employee loyalty and retention

Where employees are based in different locations, working remotely or perhaps just contributing a few hours a week, creating that all-important sense of community for your charity or not for profit can be challenging. Cezanne HR acts as your communication hub, making it easy to bring people together.

From company updates and saying thanks to informative portals and easy onboarding, Cezanne HR’s HR software suite helps you promote your charity’s unique culture and values.

Recruitment and onboarding

Reduce the cost of filling vacancies

If you need to take on seasonal staff quickly or ensure a steady stream of new recruits, a fast, efficient and cost-effective recruitment and onboarding process is essential.

Cezanne HR’s integrated Recruitment and Onboarding modules streamline the complete hiring cycle. From publishing vacancies online, through managing interviews and job offers, to ensuring a warm welcome for new joiners, Cezanne HR will save your charity time and money.

Simplify payroll processing

Processing payroll can take a lot of time, especially if your charity has staff on multiple contracts or working different hours. That’s why we also offer a Managed Payroll service. All you need to do is ensure your people data is up to date, and we’ll manage the time-consuming payroll processing for you.

Alternatively, you can take advantage of one of the many integrations we have with leading third-party payroll providers. Whatever your approach, you’ll benefit from more connected and easier to manage payroll – and a better service for your people.
