Ceridian, a global human capital management (HCM) technology company, continues its UK momentum with the roll-out of its cloud-based platform, Dayforce, to Essentra and Orvis. The duo will use Ceridian’s Dayforce UK payroll functionality to help ensure employees are paid accurately and on time, while eliminating time-consuming paper-based processes.

Essentra, a manufacturer and supplier of plastic components, chose Dayforce to create efficiencies, simplify their people processes, and to gain insights across their global organisation. Already a customer in the U.S., Essentra is now leveraging Dayforce’s payroll and workforce management modules in the UK.

“Dayforce played an integral role in modernising our people processes, and has proved beneficial to the entire organisation,” said Richard Galletly, Director of Compensation and Benefits, Essentra. “We chose to continue to work with Ceridian as we believe the platform’s combination of automation, flexibility, and accessibility has significantly helped us cut down our processing times and introduce changes in staffing, operations and policies, with ease.”

Mail order retailer Orvis, a family-owned business specialising in fly fishing, hunting, and sporting goods, has also recently signed on with Dayforce for their UK operations. Orvis is also a Dayforce customer in the U.S. and have extended their use of the pay and benefits module to their UK team.

“We’re proud to announce that Essentra and Orvis have rolled out the Dayforce platform, leading to more simplified processes and increased internal efficiencies,” said Ross Tracey, Managing Director, Ceridian Europe. “The past year was a big milestone for our team as we launched Dayforce in the United Kingdom. We look forward to supporting all our new customers as they work to build strong, connected, and engaged workforces using the Dayforce data-first, cloud-based platform.”

Through Dayforce’s single, robust, real-time application, UK organisations benefit from a full offering, including:
