Today’s post describes a business that, by its very nature, demands a robust Workforce Management system. As more and more companies hire temporary contractors as part of their business strategy (as opposed to an occasional stopgap fix during a staffing emergency), savvy temp firms can seize the opportunity and expand and diversify.
Consider the unique logistics of our example company. While some staffing services specialize in just one industry—such as health care—this 12-year-old firm has entered new markets steadily for the past few years. They currently place administrative assistants, computer programmers, call center staff, manufacturing labor, machinists, child care providers, and substitute teachers.
With a continual turnover of contract workers and offsite punch ins as the norm, this firm couldn’t cope with their timekeeping and scheduling system. Though it was partially automated, the technology was 10 years old and it couldn’t provide the number of job codes they required. The mobile app malfunctioned periodically and didn’t support the latest time clocks.
A staffing firm simultaneously serves two classes of clients; the temp contractors they place and the businesses who use the workers. Each of the players count on the firm for accuracy. The employers don’t want to overpay the temps, and the hourly temp workers are, understandably, especially sensitive to timekeeping accuracy.
Solution – Workforce Management Suite
The Workforce Management Suite time and attendance tool, TimeWorksPlus, quickly solved a multitude of problems. The Workforce Management Suite mobile app allows contract workers to clock in on their smartphone wherever they are. Because the PunchLogic function has virtually done away with missed and duplicate punches, timekeeping accuracy has improved significantly.
Scheduling Made Easy With Workforce Management Suite
Temp worker hours are tracked with customizable system notifications and there are nine pay-rate fields and employee groups/sorting/filtering for easy organization and oversight.
TimeWorksPlus is customizable for the copious lunch and break policies of the organizations they serve. The agency personnel can see what’s going on with all of their temp workers in real time on any given day.
With the recent rise in ransomware hackings and other data security threats, the office puts a premium on data security and values the peace of mind provided by Workforce Management Suite.
Workforce Management Suite is the ultimate Workforce Management system for staffing agencies. With Workforce Management under control, now they can focus on serving even more industries while keeping current clients satisfied.
