"I came across ACT by accident and I am so pleased I did; I wish I had known about the system earlier! As soon as I heard the concept, I knew it would solve a real problem I had. My team of 20 payroll administrators need to keep up with their CPD, I need to ensure my team are trained and keep up to date at an affordable cost and then I need to ensure I can evidence they have learnt what they need to know.
The ACT tool is electronic, looks whizzy and innovative and best of all can link to our competency framework. This framework determines where a payroll administrator is with their skill set and is linked to progression salaries. What better way for me as a Partner in a firm, who heads up the payroll team, to know where everyone is and what they need to do to meet the needs of our clients and their personal development plans.
The resource it takes to put a training module together along with an assessment tool just wasn’t viable in-house; this does all that and more for me and my team; we cannot wait to get going as I know it will be just what I was looking for."
