Despite workforce management software gaining in popularity, many businesses are still reluctant to adopt it. The concept of workforce management isn’t all that new, but there is growing evidence that its benefits are earning small to medium-sized businesses a significant ROI.
Manufacturers require superior workforce management scheduling solutions to deal with complex issues like labor allocation, payroll, time tracking, and compliance.
When considering new workforce management solutions, company CFOs, HR, and payroll managers are looking for a strong ROI – a solution that ramps up efficiency, cuts back on manual errors, helps with regulatory compliance and integrates well with existing systems.
The simple answer to the question “what is workforce management?” is: a process, or software, that organizes, tracks and manages activities required to maintain a productive workforce. This would include time management, human resources, absence management, labor allocation, staff scheduling and reports/analytics. That’s the “simple” answer to the “what”, but decision-makers in any organization need to know more - the kind of questions that will allow them to implement a process, and/or a WFM software, that will actually maximize performance, and streamline efficiencies across every department.
