The challenge

NRS (formerly known as Magnox) – a subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority – is the management and operations contractor responsible for electricity generation at the Maentwrog hydroelectric power station and for the decommissioning of 12 other nuclear sites in the UK.

The rising cost of materials and energy, government fiscal pressures, and global events all influence corporate strategy. The skills needed to deliver nuclear-related programs are in competitive demand, and business is growing: the UK government has recently announced an agreement with EDF Energy to transfer advanced gas-cooled reactor sites to NRS for future decommissioning.

● Energy sector

● 2,500 employees

● operations across the UK.

NRS now benefits from a single, connected view of HR & finance data
and significant efficiency savings:


hours annually across the business – Talent Management is saving 30 minutes x 2,500 staff x twice a year.


more hours monthly for the Finance team – FP&A is projected to save the equivalent of 50 FTE hours a month.
