PeopleWeek Intranet Software is feature-rich yet easy to use. It provides a one-stop shop for HR activities across the employee life-cycle and is complimented by an integrated collaboration platform.
PeopleWeek HR Software is designed and hosted in Switzerland to be as durable and high quality as a Swiss timepiece. Your data is hosted in a state-of-the-art data center in a country with robust data privacy and security laws.
PeopleWeek Intranet Software can grow with your organisation and you can add new modules whenever you are ready.
PeopleWeek was created in 2016 with the vision of offering organisations a very different type of HR software than the traditional solutions. There were 3 main drivers. Firstly, we wanted our platform to be engaging, not just an administrative tool. We achieved this by making it both an HR and a collaboration software. Secondly, we wanted to build a solution that combines the benefits of a customised software and an off-the shelf solution. We achieved this by designing innovative system architecture. Thirdly, we wanted to be a one-stop-shop for all HR and collaboration processes so that we could offer our clients a complete, yet user-friendly and affordable, solution. We achieved this by developing a rich suite of à la carte modules.
PeopleWeek has more than 20 modules and the platform is designed by a team that comprises HR and software design professionals. We also partner very closely with our clients to build new features. Whilst being proudly Swiss in terms of the quality of our products and customer support, we are an international solution and have country-specific configurations to meet the legal requirements in different jurisdictions (including for payroll).
Today our customers represent about 20 different sectors – including financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, media, and retail – and our users span every continent.
Our original 3 drivers remain unchanged. They continue to guide us as we develop and grow.
PeopleWeek’s mission is to help organisations grow by simplifying people management, automating HR and payroll administration, improving productivity and fostering employee collaboration. We believe in agile, smart and user-friendly functionality so our clients can focus on running their business rather than running an IT system.
PeopleWeek wants to transform the HR technology landscape internationally for medium-sized organisations, giving our clients access to tools that until now were beyond their reach due to costs and complexity.
Where are your servers?
Our servers are based in Switzerland’s Premier Data Center, STACK (formerly known as SafeHost).
STACK is certified by Swiss quality standards.
How often do you back up your customers’ data?
Back-ups are performed daily, and the retention default period is one month. However, customers can request longer retention periods at an additional charge.
Where do you store the data?
Customer data is stored on our servers in Switzerland.
Do you have a fall-back data center service?
Yes, PeopleWeek offers a fall-back data center, which is also located in Switzerland.
Can I select which modules to buy?
Yes. Only the HCM module (the “People” module) is obligatory. All other modules are optional. You only pay for the modules you use. You can also add modules over time as your organisation’s needs evolve.
What is included in the license fees?
License fees include software licenses, hosting, back-up, support, and upgrades.
How long does an implementation take?
It depends on the complexity of the implementation (e.g. number of modules, number of entities, the size of the employee population, integrations with third party platforms) and the quality of your existing people data. In general, a simple implementation takes 4 to 8 weeks and a complex implementation 12 to 16 weeks.
What will be my domain URL?
PeopleWeek clients can choose their own prefix (using the PeopleWeek domain URL).
Can I customise the software?
PeopleWeek is Software as a Service (SaaS). This approach means that the system’s core design and configuration are standardized (despite there being many configurability options), thereby making deployments and new releases easy for our customers as no testing is needed on their end.
Can I set a preferred language as a default language for the whole organisation?
Yes, this is very easy to do. In addition, each user can select their preferred user interface language. PeopleWeek is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
Is there a free or trial version?
PeopleWeek does not provide a trial version. Whilst the system is very intuitive, it is also rich in functionality. As such, PeopleWeek offers personalized demos of the system, which also has the benefit of being interactive and enabling potential clients to ask questions. If, after a demo of the system, your organisation is potentially interested in purchasing PeopleWeek, it is possible to have access to a client test demo version of the system in order to take a deeper look at the functionality
Does PeopleWeek have a mobile app?
Yes. PeopleWeek has a mobile app for iOS and Android.
Does PeopleWeek allow customisation of colours and logos?
Yes. Our clients’ user interface is customisable with their logo and colour. Configurations can also be different by entity if required.
What is configurable at an entity level?
Most functionalities can be configured at an entity level. This means that PeopleWeek is a very flexible platform for organisations with multiple entities that have different HR practices.

Social Responsibility and Sustainability
PeopleWeek wants to be a force for good and to lead by example. We focus on limiting our environmental footprint and being a responsible organisation in terms of how we treat people and the planet.
Most importantly, our software is designed to minimise its environmental impact [click here to learn more]. Secondly, we have a number of simple internal working practices to limit consumption of resources, e.g. a paperless office, no printing, no throw-away plastic, and business travel only when it is essential.
We are also a partner of Treebanks, whose mission is to fight pollution and C02. When travel bookings are made through a Treebanks partner, they plant a tree for life. Of course, PeopleWeek’s aim is to avoid travelling in the first place and, instead, use video-conferencing. As a partner, we contribute to tree planting irrespective of our low business travel volumes.
PeopleWeek hires new talent as the business grows. At present the focus is on hiring into the software development team in Skopje, North Macedonia.In terms of personal qualities, we want to hire developers who are passionate about the quality of their code and the user experience. We are a close-knit and entrepreneurial team so we also want to hear from people that are strong team players and creative problem-solvers.
Working at PeopleWeek is an exciting opportunity as we can offer interesting challenges and career growth potential as the company takes on more customers.
We look forward to hearing from you. If you are interested, please send us your CV :

PeopleWeek ’s payroll functionality
PeopleWeek stores all personal, professional and remuneration data required for payroll processing in any country. This data can then be exported to our clients’ payroll vendors for importing into their payroll engine for payroll processing. In turn, PeopleWeek can import payslips and other payroll-related documents into employees’ personal folders.
PeopleWeek can build a country-specific payroll user interface and data exports for any country. We have already done so for many countries so that our multi-country clients have an international solution.
Payroll Partners can be given segregated access to sections of PeopleWeek that are needed for payroll processing, including employees’ payroll profiles, reports and export files. Payroll Partners can use their access to make certain payroll-related configurations in PeopleWeek, for example, create new pay elements, set payroll cut-off and payment dates, and change rates of overtime compensation. Unlike clients, Payroll Partners can also enter retroactive payments and changes into PeopleWeek.
More than just payroll
Some Payroll Partners provide additional HR services, such as management of employee insurances, statutory leave (accident, sickness, maternity, paternity, parental, national services, etc), work permits, and reimbursement of expenses. PeopleWeek can also export this data so that it can be imported into your systems or managed manually.
The benefits for clients
PeopleWeek is not a payroll vendor or HR services company. We are software specialists with deep knowledge of payroll and HR internationally. This means that our software is designed to make payroll processing and HR administration as efficient as possible, secure, and significantly reduce the risk of human error (end-to-end between the employee, HR and the payroll vendor). For example:
- Our intuitive user interface (UI) enables employees to update their personal information as needed;
- The Pay Element UI enables HR to efficiently assign pay elements and benefits to employees;
- HR can run reports to quickly identify any payroll-critical information that is missing or invalid;
- The system sends automated reminders to users to ensure that they submit payroll relevant information on time;
- Payroll Partners, employees and HR can be given shared access to employee folders to ensure document sharing takes place within PeopleWeek; and
- Export files are automated and delivered in the format and at the frequency required.
The benefits for payroll partners
Our solution offers significant efficiency gains for you without the need to fundamentally change established workflows with your clients. Benefits include:
- Improved quality and timeliness of data submitted for payroll processing;
- Improved productivity as less time is spent chasing clients for data and correcting errors;
- The possibility to make country-specific configurations;
- Alignment of data in the HRIS (PeopleWeek) and the payroll engine;
- More efficient information sharing with employees and HR, including payroll-related documents;
- Offering your clients and prospective clients next-generation software to meet their HR, collaboration and payroll needs.
The Payroll Partnership Programme has a white label solution for small implementations. This unbranded solution enables our Payroll Partners to offer a core set of modules to clients that have less than 50 employees. The solution is branded in the name of the Payroll Partner and you take the lead in implementing the solution for the client.
Typically companies with more than 50 employees (and sometimes those with less than 50 employees) require the full PeopleWeek solution. The full solution offers a broader set of modules and PeopleWeek takes the lead on implementations (as they are, typically, more complex than for white label clients).
Both solutions offer the same high level of technical support, IT security, data hosting, and the PeopleWeek mobile app.
PeopleWeek Payroll Partners exhibit the following characteristicse:
- Deep local expertise;
- Passion for customer excellence;
- Commitment to continuous innovation;
- Entrepreneurial spirit;
- A collaborative mindset (see PeopleWeek as a partner and not as a competitor)
What do our partners say about collaborating with us?
CO-FOUNDER AND HEAD OF GLOBAL OPERATIONS, LOYCO SA
Loyco SA is a provider of integrated payroll and HR services (for example, absences, insurances and pensions) to small, medium and large organisations in Switzerland. Many of our clients have international operations. Over the years we have developed our own software solutions to support our clients and our own internal operations. However, we were not able to offer a full suite of HR modules to our clients until we partnered with PeopleWeek.
With PeopleWeek, Loyco is able to offer our clients an end-to-end HR and payroll solution. Our clients manage their own data via the PeopleWeek user-friendly UI and mobile app, and it is automatically exported to Loyco in the format and at the frequency we need to manage payroll and other administrative services. We then import the data into our payroll engine. PeopleWeek’s Payroll Partner Access means that we can manage most payroll related topics autonomously with our clients and without having access to non-payroll related data.
In a nutshell, PeopleWeek enables our clients and Loyco to be completely digitalised, thereby improving data quality, timeliness and efficiency. It has also created commercial opportunities for Loyco as we increasingly see that organisations want a joined-up HR/payroll solution and expect deep subject matter expertise in both technology and services.
The Loyco and PeopleWeek teams work really well together. It genuinely feels like a partnership.
