Company unveils new features and shares thought leadership during American Association of School Personnel Administrators Annual Conference
Malvern, Pa –October 12, 2021– Frontline Education, a leading provider of school administration software purpose-built for K-12, today announced a newly branded suite, Frontline HCM, which will offer school leaders a holistic view and approach to human capital management. The connected suite will enhance efficiency, increase productivity and improve overall performance for K-12 administrators, while providing insights that allow them to focus on more strategic initiatives that drive student success.
The need for strategic human capital management and the ability to attract, manage, develop and retain highly qualified teachers and staff has become increasingly important as the education community addresses issues exacerbated by the pandemic. Industry-wide staff shortages as well as management, engagement and development of existing talent are among the greatest challenges facing administrators today. Frontline HCM offers a solution that will manage the entire employee lifecycle and aid in attracting and then retaining high-quality teachers and staff who provide the educational, emotional and environmental support students need.
“We are deeply committed to serving the K-12 community and continue to strive to deliver solutions that make a difference for our clients who have the very important job of managing school districts and educating the next generation,” said Mark Gruzin, CEO of Frontline. “The Frontline HCM suite demonstrates our ability to think proactively, to meet our clients’ changing needs and to provide innovative, solutions-oriented technology that fosters a strategic approach to HCM.”
News of Frontline HCM comes on the heels of the company’s spring release which included Frontline Central as the hub for connected workflow and form automation as well as connected employee demographic data and capabilities for self-service. Frontline HCM will connect employment data across the solutions set which includes Frontline Recruiting & Hiring, Professional Growth, Absence & Time and HRMS. The suite will include a seamless and cohesive HR experience, saving districts time, eliminating the need to manage information in multiple systems, and automatically activating key workflows across systems.
“Having a talent management system designed for K-12 organizations, including the highest level of security, has been a major asset for every department, especially during COVID,” said Darrell Kingsbury, Assistant Superintendent of HR of Caledonia School District. “At Caledonia, everything’s focused on providing the best learning environment and the talent management system helps with that. Payroll gets processed on time, subs are hired when needed and professional growth is available to teachers and easy to track.”
More specifics of Frontline HCM will be unveiled at this year’s American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) event taking place October 12-15 in Washington, D.C. Demonstrations will be available, and the Frontline team will be speaking to three trending topics:
- Strategic HCM: Bringing It All Together
- Professional Growth: Supporting Your Employees and Their Career Journey
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Do You Have the Right Tools to Support Your Initiative?
