Customer Success Story



Operating cost savings


Staff now paperless


Reduced HR admin tasks

Gatwick Airport go paperless and save 250K in operating costs

Gatwick Airport receives over 46 million passengers each year, flying to around 230 destinations in over 70 countries. Both passengers and cargo fly out of the North and South terminals every day, powered by 24,000 staff on the campus from over 250 different companies.

Gatwick Airport directly employs over 3,000 people to keep its facilities running – most of whom work on shifts which change from week to week and do not have access to laptops. Having previously outsource their HR and Payroll software solution to Zellis, the team noticed it had not been upgraded in several years and felt a more modern, unified platform was required to engage users but also to maximise efficiencies that outsourcing to CoreHR could deliver by removing legacy paper-based systems and replacing with a Cloud based mobile first application.

After engaging with CoreHR, Gatwick Airport installed a comprehensive suite of modules including CoreHR’s Managed Payroll Services and have instantly seen financial benefits. “Our move to CoreHR has seen total organisation engagement,
efficiency savings and immediate Op Ex Savings of circa 250K”.
