  3. Managing HR in a non-profit

Nigel Langhorn is CEO of Agamemnon Housing, a not-for-profit organisation providing affordable, managed housing for people over 60., who came to citrus looking for HR expertise to help manage his people.

When Nigel took over as CEO for Agamemnon Housing, he was struck by the amount of time and effort being spent on HR processes. As a not-for-profit, time and resources were precious, so Nigel began searching for a way to manage things more efficiently.

“Joining citrusHR has taken a huge amount of stress and strain out of the business for comparatively little money. It was a no-brainer.”

Here’s Nigel: “As a busy CEO with lots to keep track of, it’s a huge time saving not to have to keep abreast of HR changes and employment law myself. It also brings great peace of mind knowing I have experienced professionals doing that for me.

Easy to access expertise

“Previously, I would have scoured Google to find answers to HR issues, but now I can find reliable information within the citrusHR software itself. And if there is anything I’m still unsure about, I know I can just email or ring someone and get a quick response. citrusHR is my HR oracle!

Clear financial value

“As a not-for-profit, every significant decision has to be presented to the board and it’s essential to prove you’re doing everything as cost-effectively as possible. Compared to other options, like employing an HR professional, our board instantly saw the benefits and value in the service citrusHR offers.

“As a small business, the flexibility afforded by the monthly rolling contract was a huge plus. I didn’t have to worry that I’d be stuck in a long contract that wasn’t bringing us value.”

No contract tie-ins

“The fact citrusHR don’t tie you in to a long contract was also a key selling point for us. As a small business, we can’t afford to be paying money for a service we aren’t getting value from.

On top of that, the ease with which a customer can leave was a good reassurance that citrusHR retains its customers through its standard of service, rather than lengthy contracts.”
