evergreen HCM leverages the HR functionalities that are a part of Dynamics 365 Finance to help project managers in professional services firms to manage their work more efficiently.

Leeds, UK – October 7, 2022

sa.global, the leading Microsoft partner for professional services firms, has announced the official release of evergreen HCM – a standalone product for Human Resources. evergreen HCM leverages the HR functionalities that are a part of Dynamics 365 Finance to create systems around convenience and empower project managers (in professional services firms) and fee earners (in law firms) with a seamless user experience.

In this release, evergreen HCM brings features to track flexible work arrangements to accommodate new work patterns. This is especially significant in today’s workplace where flexible hours and remote work are the norm, and project managers in professional services firms have to monitor varying schedules.

evergreen HCM also offers functionalities for payroll export tables for new starters and leavers. The solution acts as a payroll interface enabling data exchange between evergreen and any third-party payroll system. Data is exported from evergreen where firms maintain employee data to the third-party payroll system to perform the payroll processing function.

The centerpoint of evergreen HCM is empower assistant – an AI-Powered ‘assistant’ embedded in Microsoft Teams. The solution brings functionalities, information, and notifications into Teams – an application where employees in professional services firms spend most time on a workday – rather than driving them to multiple applications. empower assistant comes with packs that provide additional functionality to growing needs. These include broadcast notices such as timesheet reminders, register of interest, leave and absence requests where employees can inform line managers of their absence, update out-of-office messages, complete timesheets for days off, and more.

Also included in this release of evergreen HCM is empower pulse where users can review their daily task lists, view their projects, record time, manage leave and absence along with other activities that an individual needs to be aware of.

“The modern workforce has grown more complex. Employees are overwhelmed by the complexity of traditional processes and want systems that save time and make work easier at all levels. With evergreen HCM, we have created a product that is applicable to every user in a system, and adds value to every employee in a professional services business,” said Paul Foster, Head of Product, sa.global. “Our focus has always been on product innovation, implementation, and client success, and we are excited that we are onboarding a leading UK law firm and a regional trade organization onto evergreen HCM,” added Paul.

Tom Elliott, Global HCM Practice Lead noted, “I believe we are in the third age of HR tech where ‘flow of work’ processes are becoming increasingly obvious. If I can approve leave from a chat message, and that approval automatically notifies the requester and updates the leave balance, I am way more likely to engage in the process rather than finding a shortcut around it. With evergreen HCM, we are translating this pipedream of “HR in the flow of work’ into a reality.”

Future releases of evergreen HCM will include enhancements to manage work patterns for full-time employees (FTEs), payroll export, and electronic reporting tools.
