Martin Taylor, Director of Business Change & Technology, Mitchells & Butlers said, "In the last 12 months we have successfully upgraded our core network and replaced our old data centre infrastructure by moving into the cloud, whilst introducing a utility-based services model. We are now at the exciting stage of taking advantage of this foundation by implementing TCS' HCM core HR and Payroll solution that will streamline our support processes, benefit our employees and place our guests at the heart of everything we do."

"We are delighted to partner with Mitchells & Butlers and are confident that our cloud-based Human Capital Management solution will help align M&B's current business operations to deliver best in class services to their employees and customers," said Shankar Narayanan, Head, TCS UK & Ireland.

Susan Martindale, Group HR Director, Mitchells & Butlers said, "We want to improve the level of HR services that we have available to our employees, and the TCS HCM system will help us on our journey to enhance our capabilities in the areas of people development, reward, resourcing and engagement."

"The TCS HCM Platform is a result of several years of research and investment by TCS. It provides our customers with an integrated, scalable and global solution which is not just cost effective, but also helps customers move away from siloed approaches to talent development, payroll and employee lifecycle management," said Raj Agrawal, Global Head, TCS Platform Solutions.

The agreement underscores TCS' non-linear growth strategy in key markets. TCS HCM Platform is an integrated and global solution that encompasses key areas of payroll, time management, workforce administration, compensation, recruitment, learning management and performance management.
