At the end of 2020, Adobe will end all support of its Flash media plugin. While many workforce management providers have already eliminated Flash features from recent solution releases, certain customers may still currently rely on Flash integrations. Continued use of any Flash-based solutions presents a security risk even with ongoing support, and that risk will only grow upon discontinuation of patch support this December.
Coronavirus may have upturned many plans and expectations for 2020, but one crucial deadline remains unchanged. Businesses everywhere have until the end of December to ditch integrations with Adobe Flash Player before Adobe ends its software support.
The world's greatest lessons are those often learned while overcoming great duress. Every champion—athletic, industrial, or otherwise—can tell an impressive story about an against all odds persistence and performance moment (whether personal or systemic).

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.
By now, the "Cloud" is a well-established and often preferred model for business software solutions — workforce management included. As advantages of the Cloud have become clearer, many uncertainties that may have prevented businesses from adopting this model in its early stages have also been settled. While early migrators are already reaping its benefits, it's certainly not too late for businesses awaiting a confident verdict on cloud efficiency.
Change is coming. Are you ready for it? A new study by Grand View Research projects workforce management trends through the year 2025, and the outlook is exciting. Overall, adoption of solution suites will continue to grow, but one key factor is expected to drive growth among new and existing system users alike. Just like responsive web design has met the needs of mobile-first visitors, the future of workforce solutions will be driven by mobile efficiency and mobility expectations of the incoming workforce.
The Cloud is alive and well in 2017 - and that should come as no surprise. We included the increasing normality of Cloud adoption in our workforce predictions for the new year without any hesitation, and new data about 2016 only strengthens our position. We're well versed in the ROI cloud-based systems like Kronos Workforce Central can provide (especially as a proud accredited partner), and these benefits have businesses of all sizes acclimating to the idea of change.
