Better Manage Labor Costs
Find out what you’re spending on labor, and where.
Labor costs are the number one business expense. You can’t manage what you don’t track! Can you identify with any of these common staff administration issues?
Overworked Supervisors: Ad hoc and manual management of multi-layer schedules and personal communication with staff members can chew up valuable manager time leaving strategic initiatives undone. Are your supervisors spending more time coordinating than effectively managing?
Crippling Overtime Costs: Excessive overtime may be due to increased work volume, high absenteeism, inefficient distribution of staff or understaffing. Low overtime and high absence could indicate too many employees. Do you know exactly what’s driving your rising costs?
Wrong Resource on the Job: You may have available resources but the duties require particular skill sets, qualifications, or certifications in order to be effective or be compliant. Can you smoothly (or automatically) place the right skills in the right place at the right time?
Out of Touch Workers: Engage workers by giving them visibility into available shift opportunities and the power to switch or pick up shifts. Online time cards, schedules, and communicating with managers. Text or email notifications for schedule updates and opportunities. Can your staff members help you manage themselves?
No Records for Audit or Analysis: Whether the organization or another entity needs verification, having adequate reporting and analysis specialties plus the historical data is essential for effective management. Can you ascertain what you did wrong or right?
Comply With Industry and Government Regulations
New provisions now or soon to be in effect could seriously influence your bottom line. These include:
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Overtime Provisions: Applies to all companies. Any worker making less than $913 per week and working over 40 hours MUST be paid overtime. Eliminate any question with automated employee timekeeping.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA): Classifying and logging hours for full-time, part-time, variable, and seasonable staff members is mandatory according to ACA regulations. Noncompliance OR lax reporting can result in penalties, sanctions, and lawsuits against an employer.
Do you need automated employee time and attendance, scheduling, and reporting in order to comply with industry or government regulations?
Our advanced automated time tracking and scheduling solution will enable you to more capably track hours worked, and paid and non-paid breaks to meet the nonelective provisions. Avoid fines, store records for verification, all while improving how you track time and labor to ensure your team members are paid accurately and on time.
