Next-Gen Workforce Management and Frontline Worker Employee Experience Technology Are High Priorities: 2022 Gartner<sup>®️</sup> Hype Cycle<sup>™️</sup>

Global employers have been facing strong headwinds in recent years that have challenged them to reimagine transformative ways to engage with their employees for better operational efficiency, employee well-being and customer experience.

Workforce management has changed due to remarkable accelerated change in recent years and is causing employers to redefine how they manage and communicate with their employees.”

Scott Bamford, Director Global Product Marketing, WorkForce Software

In this webinar, Modern Workforce Management in the Cloud, three industry and solution experts tackle these challenges and discuss recommendations for four opportunities in front of organisations to lead through change and emerge in a far better competitive position.

Obstacle 1

Optimise Your Labour

  • Move manual processes and/or paper-driven environment to the cloud to reduce errors and administrative overload and control payroll leakage
  • Harness detailed cloud-based labour data to provide valuable and actionable insights to identify operational inefficiencies and labour optimisation opportunities
  • Ensure full visibility of labour spend, accurately assign labour hours to budgets or costs centers and identify opportunities to reduce overspend
Obstacle 1

Increase Productivity

  • Eliminate inefficient and error-prone manual processing of timesheets through cloud-based automation
  • Utilise cloud-based accurate time capture and real-time automated calculation of all gross hours and pay for more streamlined payroll processing
  • Help managers be more productive with higher levels of automation to prioritise critical actions

Obstacle 1

Improve Employee Experience

  • Provide cloud-based and mobile-friendly access to employee information to make it easier and more convenient for employees to use
  • Enable and empower employees to self-manage their rosters, pay, vacation, leave, etc. from anywhere at any time
  • Remove manual and burdensome processes which cause an overload of administrative work for managers and team members
Obstacle 1

Ensure Compliance

  • Track and enforce distinct pay rates and rules by position to reduce the risk of financial penalties and/or reputational brand damage
  • Catch potential compliance issues related to payroll proactively by validating labour data in real-time
  • Utilise built-in templates, parameters and rules engine to support new legislation and changing laws
