The Illawarra Retirement Trust Group (IRT Group) is one of Australia’s largest community based seniors lifestyle and care providers. Their mission is to create communities where seniors achieve their optimum quality of life – and have been delivering on this promise for over 45 years.
The deregulation of the Aged Care Industry in Australia caused significant pressure on IRT as an organisation – where overcoming business challenges such as the attraction/ retention of key talent in a highly competitive and price sensitive market are essential for success. Technological advancement has resulted in employees expecting a work user experience that matches their every day lives in terms of mobility, social collaboration and immediacy. IRT’s existing technology was obsolete and did not enable a quality user experience – their Vision was to replace their existing technology with next generation, cloud based solutions that enable Performance & Goals, Recruitment, Learning, Core HR and Payroll services to enable their People & Culture function to focus on delivering strategic outcomes to the business.
Synchrony worked with IRT to transform their HR Functions with Performance & Goals being implemented across their entire organisation, Learning – supporting the IRT University – and Employee Central with Synchrony Payroll, enabling Core HR and Payroll, giving employee's access to their HR data from any device, anywhere.
