Havenhill Synergy saves 840 hours monthly with faster HR process using Grove HR

The Nigerian energy access company, set to become a part of the leading renewable energy service providers in Africa, struggled to manage HR processes as the business grew. With Grove HR, they can now recruit, onboard, and empower the talents they need to achieve their goal.

Established in 2010, Havenhill Synergy Limited is a Nigerian company whose operations are guided by its desire to end blackout and develop rural economies in its nation. They are on the mission to increase enegery access by using solar energy to generate clean, safe, cost-effective & sustainable electricity across rural, peri-urban, and urban Nigeria.

Today, a cohesive team of 62 members is working relentlessly to generate electricity in both rural and urban areas of the federation in which they operate using solar energy.

Tasked with the increasing workforce, the company tried out a couple of HR software like Zoho People to reduce manual work, which Antinuke Adamolekun - People Relations Associate described as ‘complex and vast’. However, Grove HR can automate HR processes with crystal clear and understandable procedures.

Grove HR - Havenhill Synergy case study


A more organized and secure data management system

Atinuke shares that the team didn't have to deal with the hassles of finding employee contact information anymore. This task has been made easy with Grove HR, as personal information is now at the fingertips of each employee.

Employees can also input or update their data when necessary. Searching for employee information, especially in the case of an emergency, is also quick and convenient using the Grove HR mobile app. Every employee at Havenhill has access to the company-wide and offline directory on their phone.

Put time-off process on auto-pilot

Havenhill used Excel sheets to track time off before. But this has changed since they started using Grove HR. Employees can now request time off and have managers approve it instantly. 

In addition to their newly implemented time off approach, they also have their employees clocking in with geofencing technology, which is set up to only allow clock-in/out within the approved office site. Plus, the implementing process is “easy to implement, no struggle at all” - said Atinuke.
