U.K. Essential Services Provider Selects UKG to Support Rapid Growth

UKG, a provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions, announced that M Group Services, one of the largest essential infrastructure services organizations in the U.K. and Ireland, has selected UKG Dimensions to support its rapid growth and provide a more transparent and empowering employee experience.

M Group Services employs more than 10,000 skilled specialists and provides services within water, energy, transport, and telecommunications sectors. With 240 locations, the organization sought a flexible workforce management solution to support its complex and highly remote workforce as well as improve productivity and operational efficiency. A key driver for the organization’s selection of UKG Dimensions is the ability to integrate with the company’s payroll solution, which M Group Services estimates will save more than $1 million in administrative costs.

“We have a mix of salaried and hourly employees, many who work offsite each day,” said Colin Jellicoe, Group Human Resources Director at M Group Services. “For years, we’ve relied on spreadsheets to capture the hours our employees work, which has proved to be a cumbersome and inaccurate operation. Dimensions will automate those processes to ensure we’re getting the data right and paying our people correctly.”
