Premier Sports Network (PSN) and IRIS Software Group have agreed a partnership which will help UK sporting clubs, teams, and HR & payroll departments in the sports market excel at managing and growing their teams, acquire and retain great talent and optimise their assets.
The move comes as key issues are surfacing amongst HR leaders, which are becoming more important as both professional and community organisations look to reinstate events and training in the coming months.
David Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at IRIS Software Group explains: “The employee experience is evolving as we prepare for new ways of working in agile environments. Operating in one of the sectors most adversely affected during the pandemic, sports HR teams need advice and support to prepare them for the future of work. Our partnership with PSN will enable HR leaders in sports to seek guidance and choose the tools they need to free time, reduce risk, and gain the insight that they need to succeed.”
