New White Paper: Analysis – Developing Effective Front-line Managers

Frontline managersEffective human capital management (HCM) strategies include an emphasis on developing effective front-line managers who are critical to your business. They manage and supervise field-level or customer-facing employees – your most critical asset in delivering value to your customers. Yet front-line managers often don’t have access to adequate tools and information necessary to support their direct reports, are overburdened by too much administrative work, have too wide a span of control, and are not empowered to incentivize and motivate their employees or team members.

A proper foundation for resourcing front-line managers begins with ready access to data on their employees and automated processes for routine, transactional, and administrative tasks. Easily accessing time and attendance, performance evaluation, and pay history data, for example, provides front-line managers with the much needed comprehensive view of their employees to monitor, coach, and make informed decisions. In addition, smart automation of compliance and administrative processes can free up managers to actually spend more time engaging with and developing their direct reports, driving the entire organization to greater success overall.

Have Salaried Employees and Don’t Need Workforce Management Tools? Think Again!

From our partners at Kronos

Ensuring the efficiency of your business means that you understand how to optimize your entire workforce, whether hourly or salaried. Here are three tips on how to leverage workforce management to drive an enhanced organizational effectiveness strategy for your organization:

Minimize Labor Compliance Risk

The management of FLSA, FMLA, and ACA regulatory guidelines applies to the entire workforce. Creating and sustaining a culture of compliance, accountability, and record keeping is vital for all organizations, big or small.

Companies need tools that provide average hours worked for full-time, part-time, hourly, and salaried workers, providing a holistic view of hours worked for all employees.

Workforce management toolsManage Accrual Liability Costs

Today, most organizations track hourly employees’ benefit data such as vacation time and sick time. Yet they are much less disciplined when tracking their salaried workforce. Organizations should also look to maintain accurate salaried time-off data.

Workforce management solutions provide an ideal way to manage time-off requests and separation policies, including accrual payoffs. Providing accurate information for liability and financial reporting curbs unnecessary costs.

Manage Labor Costs

With a globally dispersed workforce, organizations must optimize their workforce management strategy to balance labor costs, productivity, and compliance risk. Labor represents your largest expense, so it needs to be carefully planned for and managed. Configurable pay rules, including overtime and schedules as well as accruals and attendance insight, give you the flexibility you need to manage both your hourly and salaried staff.

The right workforce management solution can give your organization the tools it needs to allocate skilled resources to meet short-term and long-term strategies.

Workforce management solutions can help organizations control labor costs, minimize compliance risks, and maximize productivity of their entire workforce, both salaried and hourly. Questions? Please contact a PayNorthwest specialist toll-free at +1.866.729.6920.
