Moore & Van Allen is a regional legal firm with a national presence. The firm has earned a reputation for delivering high levels of client service and for providing sophisticated legal services in a broad range of practice areas. The firm prides itself on being technologically progressive and has continually sought to take advantage of cutting-edge HCM technology.
Moore & Van Allen sought a more robust solution for basic and strategic HR functions, including open enrollment, onboarding, and reporting.
"Diversity and inclusion is important at Moore & Van Allen. We strive to be a reflection of our community and to demonstrate our values to our clients, some of which ask us to report our demographics in RFPs and surveys," said Patti Oswald, Director of Human Resources at Moore & Van Allen. "They want to evaluate our overall level of diversity and also see the specifics by ethnicity, gender, and other factors. With UKG Pro, we have the ability to track our LGBTQ and veteran populations for the first time. Through a combination of Pro's configurability, onboarding technology, and self-service, we are creating a self-sustaining process to collect and maintain this data confidentially.
"For instance, while an LGBTQ individual may decline to disclose this information during onboarding, the individual may respond to a yearly email I will send that invites our employees to update their personal information in Pro. We can capture this critical data when individuals are open to voluntarily and confidentially disclosing it in the solution."

Oswald understands that HR's responsiveness to the firm's internal clients ― attorneys and business development groups — translates into better service externally. Speed and efficiency are priorities, and solutions such as UKG Pro® Compensation are providing great value.
"UKG Pro Compensation has been wonderful. It is helping us organize our decision-making process and strategies for allocating staff salary increases consistently across the company, and it empowers our managers to orchestrate this important process on their own," said Oswald. "Once I give the managers their budgets, they can use Pro to view all their employees' records, make the desired adjustments, and then send the information back to HR electronically. Pro has replaced the constant exchanging of spreadsheets with a simple workflow. The managers love it, and I love it."
