From manual to digital - The Patriots masters employee management with Grove HR

Incorporated in 2019, The Patriots is a publishing, investment holding, and digital content producing company. The entire business structure relies on employing the best minds to get the job done in time without compromising quality. This makes the HR team an important arm of the company. With Grove HR, The HR team now has a seamless recruitment process and engaging approach to employee management.

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, The Patriots has 23 employees and two personnel on the HR team. Before coming in contact with Grove HR, Maslinda Abdul Talib - Chief Revenue Officer shared that her HR team has to rely on Excel to perform all HR activities.

Without a dedicated system, the company’s employee management and payroll was a mess. Then enter Grove HR.

Adopting Grove HR’s Employee Records management and Company News on the mobile app enables the HR team to work from anywhere.


A better way of dealing with talents

Before Grove HR, Maslinda and her teammate have to manually sort through the numerous CVs on their desk. Whose CVs do we move to the next stage? What message do we send to those candidates who didn’t make it past the previous stage? These are some of the questions that are constantly on their minds.

Thankfully, with Grove HR’s system at their disposal, all of these questions have been answered. The Recruitment module helps them manage CVs in an organized and seamless way. They can easily search and filter based on their needs. Plus, Grove HR allows the team to send automated follow-up emails for each stage in the process and know which stage each candidate is in with one click.

Error-free payroll data consolidation process in less than 5 minutes

The Patriot's team used to use punch cards to track attendance. This manual process took a lot of time when it came to collecting data for payroll.

With Grove HR’s system, however, this process has now been a breeze.

It now takes less than five minutes to get the job done with no error.

As Maslinda puts it:

Work conveniently on Grove HR mobile app

Another problem the team had initially was keeping employee profiles up to date. They had to rely on Excel and that makes collaboration tough. Now, even the employees can access data and update it anywhere and anytime without a hitch. Of course, they are only granted access to their own information, keeping The Patriot’s data safe and secured.

Maslinda adds that the mobile app is one of the reasons she chose Grove HR. Aside from helping with time-off and time attendance, the team can also publish major company news and announcements. This helps spark conversations between employees and foster a more engaged company culture.

She said: “It's quite easy to use. Now, I can work 90% from the mobile app.”

The Patriots’s choice to use Grove HR solution enabled it to continue to grow its workforce and streamline HR processes to meet booming business demands
