There’s not a business around that wouldn’t love to improve its workforce performance and productivity. These are certainly common goals that guide many of our workforce management solution implementations for our clients. But while the tools best suited to specific businesses may vary, the approach to how they are used may be the real secret to a more productive workforce. In a new report, Gallup digs into the pitfalls of traditional performance management on employee engagement and makes a convincing case for a developmental approach to cultivating great performance.
It's an exciting time for the future of workforce management. New Kronos Workforce Dimensions was the surprise announcement unveiled at this year's KronosWorks conference. Since then, we've channelled our excitement into gathering the latest information on what this new solution means for the businesses we aim to serve, and the outlook is bright.
We're back and in top gear after another incredible KronosWorks conference. The future of workforce management is bright with exciting new and upcoming technologies, and we're feeling rather inspired. There's so much to absorb, but the people we met and conversations we had made it a truly special event. Here's just a quick rundown of what went down for The WFC Group team:
Last month, Kronos announced updates and improvements to its Kronos Workforce Central Suite solutions aimed at helping HR managers stay even more on top of employee engagement trends. We’ll be sharing some updates out of KronosWorks (we’re here in Vegas as you read this!) in the upcoming weeks, but for now - here’s some benefits businesses are taking advantage of already in the Workforce Central Suite.
It's our favorite time of the year again. KronosWorks is next week already, and we're ready to talk workforce management shop with everyone in attendance. Will you be in Vegas? If you're joining us at the conference, drop by our booth (#605), chat with our staff and scan your badge for a chance to win a $500 Southwest Airlines gift card. While you're there, we'll be more than happy to discuss some of this year's endlessly fascinating topics:
There's a lot of truth in the saying "showing up is half the battle." As human resources and workforce managers, making sure you're achieving peak productivity with proper staffing is a major concern. You need people in the right place at all times and the ability to adjust and adapt quickly for both planned and unplanned absences. At the same time, today's highly capable workforce anticipates personal flexibility, compassion and understanding when it's needed most. Achieving all of this comes down to having the proper tools in place.
The KronosWorks conference in Las Vegas is coming up fast, and we could not be more excited to meet with business leaders looking to get the most out of their Kronos software. We’ll be participating as a Kronos Gold Accredited Partner in the expo again this year. Our team will be hosting consultations and answering your questions at booth #605, so reserve a dedicated consultant or just drop on by!
Finding the perfect workforce configuration is sometimes a weeks or months-long process, often preceding full-on implementation — another time consuming effort. With the rise of Cloud-based systems, Kronos developed a way to deliver baseline solutions faster based on decades of observation and implementation across businesses’ usual representative needs by industry.
As The WFC Group team gears up to attend KronosWorks next month, we’re covering some important topics of interest around Kronos solutions and how to get the most out of them. Here we’ve identified five issues we’ve observed that prevent businesses from maximizing their benefit, some of which we hope to discuss with managers joining us at the conference.
