Employers have a well-established legal right (and responsibility) to track labor hours and certain activities of employees who are using company resources and mobile devices during work hours. This requires good management and accurate tracking of employee arrival and departure times as well as their online activity while “on the clock”. It is the responsibility of the employer’s management team to bring out the productivity of employees under them.
Understanding what tools are available and what elements must be considered when defining a workforce strategy can be difficult for even a seasoned HR professional. With new technological advances in monitoring solutions and Time and Attendance applications, not to mention the changing workforce demographics, this material will tie the two topics together in a way that helps the participant understand the benefits.
Other related discussion will briefly introduce more specific topics such as written policy considerations, the use of Biometrics to reduce “ghost punches”, e-mail privacy, Department of Labor audit considerations, cost consideration of calculating a manual time card, benefits such as PTO and sick pay, the direct benefits of exporting time and attendance data into the payroll system, labor reporting and more.
A brief discussion will transpire on how to shop for software and what an employer can do to engage employees in a workforce management system which includes Performance Management options. Change Management will be introduced where it pertains to management, the organization and the employee. Communications, reporting and employee management tools are all considered and discussed in the presentation.
