Leading online personalized products retailer, builds closer connections to its teams by becoming a People Company

Photobox Group, Europe’s leading digital consumer service for personalized products and gifts, and parent of the Photobox, Moonpig, Hofmann, posterXXL and Greetz brands has invested in Sage Business Cloud People, a market leader in HR and People software, to improve the employee experience and internal engagement.

Following the opening of its new £20m state-of-the-art headquarters at Herbal House in London, the Photobox Group continues to invest in delivering amazing experiences for its customers as well as its teams.

As part of this investment, Photobox Group identified the need to improve all aspects of people management across its four brands.

Dora Kocur, Director of Employee Experience at Photobox Group explains: “We have designed our new space around collaboration and agile-working which gives our employees the freedom to innovate for our customers and have impact at scale for the business and for their careers.

“However, employee engagement cannot stop at great work environments. We needed an online platform that allows us to engage our incredibly diverse employee base, 1,000+ people from over 50 different nations, based in multiple locations around Europe.”

With a hugely diverse employee base, located in multiple offices as well as production facilities, it was important that the selected solution could provide the same experience to all employees.

The implementation of Sage People also means Photobox Group will benefit from accurate data across the entire company, freeing up time and resource by eliminating manual processes.

The team are already starting to see other areas they can improve and make savings in, such as online performance and salary reviews, as well as help to communicate the right business culture across all of their brands.

“We chose Sage People as it provides multi-country support, mobile app capability as well as instant accessibility,” explains Kocur.

“The Sage People team has been a great partner for us, helping us work though our challenges in a way that can future-proof our employee management.”

Jon Harrison, Global VP of Sage People added: “Photobox Group is an online success story. We’re excited to be working with them to help fulfil their ambitions, supporting their plans for continued growth and helping to achieve improvements and savings across their business.”

Implementation is currently underway, with the aim to have the system live and available to the entire global workforce by the end of the year.
