It is highly likely that if you are a small enough company you can manage your workforce through Post-It notes, emails, or spreadsheets. However, once you enter the range of 40 or more employees, it becomes more complicated to manage.
Workforce management software has been the answer to saving time and money since its appearance in the early 1970s. Before the computer revolution, companies had teams of administrative personnel that handled forecasting, scheduling, budgeting, and data collection, as well as HR issues such as absence management, performance, and training.
Today, in addition to saving companies time and money by reducing administrative personnel, workforce management software can aid in compliance and performance.
Ensure Company Compliance Of A Variety Of Laws
The introduction of software products is not the only aspect of change since the 1970s. Regulations, and more importantly “compliance,” is the number one reason business owners look to workforce management software for solutions as failing to comply with the ever-increasing and changing laws can result in hefty fines or closure.
Here is a short list of laws in which businesses must be able to demonstrate compliance:
There are laws to follow governing wages and compensation, health care, recruitment and hiring, labor laws, minimum wage, safety, bias and discrimination. There are laws determining when a business should compensate for overtime, sick days, and so on.
It doesn’t take a team of people to tackle these tasks any longer with workforce management software from Pipkins!
Optimization of Workforce Productivity
Workforce management has come to mean the optimization of operations to meet your workload. There is nothing wrong with looking at it that way but remember that workforce management encompasses both optimal resource deployment and productivity.
A company forecasts staffing requirements to meet the predicted demands of the day, month, or year. After viewing those results, they can embark in long range planning (budgeting, recruitment, and training) or make intraday reactions and short-term adjustments.
Productivity is the always the goal, data collection the means, and optimization of staffing is the key — all can be found in your workforce management software suite.
