Co Clare-based technology firm HRLocker is to create 50 new jobs which will see the company more than double in size.

The Human Resources technology provider, which is based in Lahinch, said the new roles are a result of the significant shift to remote working due to Covid-19.

HRLocker automates the administrative elements of Human Resources, such as performance management, absence management, continuous professional development and timesheets

In response to demand from businesses, it has also introduced a number remote working related features including geolocation logins, contactless clock-ins, employee self-service and digital noticeboards.

Adam Coleman, chief executive of HRLocker, said that with remote and dual working now the norm for many organisations, business leaders are looking for technologies that enhance employee experience and minimise disruption. 

"In 2020 we saw a huge rise in HRLocker platform users and early figures indicate that trend is going to continue," Mr Coleman said.

"The expansion of our team will enable us to continue delivering great software solutions, that connect businesses and their people, at scale," he said.

"We are expanding our sales and marketing team to bring more support to new and existing customers, while our investment in product development and customer support will allow us to continue innovating and configuring our platform to meet the unique HR needs of the market going forward," he added.
