About Sage People

The Sage People HR System enables mid-sized organisations, with 200 – 5000 employees, to become people-centric, transforming how they recruit, manage and engage their people.

Sage People is particularly suited to mid-sized international organisations or growing SMEs that have multi-country requirements. It is a good fit for high-growth companies that have multiple sites and complex HR affairs.

Built on the world’s leading enterprise cloud platform, Salesforce App Cloud, Sage People covers all your core HR needs, such as people management, compensation, benefits and time management but also includes talent acquisition, talent management and HR planning

Sage People can support both local and global implementations with multi-lingual and multi-currency implementations. It is a robust system that can be implemented quickly, is simple to use and can increase productivity and reduce HR operational costs with a real-time data dashboard. The Sage People HR System has become a market leader because of the way it increases workforce visibility, improves HR productivity and delivers a great employee experience.

The Key Benefits

The Sage People HR System:

  • manages all aspects of your HR operations quickly and efficiently via a simple user interface,
  • simplifies your workforce management with automation and self-service,
  • is scalable and adaptable to meet your evolving needs.


Sage People delivers a better way to manage the employment journey from joining to leaving and enables HR to reclaim the management and control of their HR system – no more internal IT ticket requests or external consultancy managing things on their behalf.

It increases productivity by automating the entire employment journey from recruitment and onboarding to performance management and off-boarding. No more excel spreadsheets and multiple record keeping because it is an end-to-end HR system based on a unified platform with a single data set, which works on any device.

Sage People easily integrates with existing systems ensuring a more consistent HR experience across the entire workforce. In particular, its ability to interface with most payroll vendors sets it apart from other HRIS software.
