Today’s post describes a business that, by its very nature, demands a robust Workforce Management system. As more and more businesses hire temporary contractors as part of their business strategy (as opposed to an occasional stopgap fix during a staffing emergency), savvy temp agencies can capitalize on the trend and expand and diversify.
Consider the unique logistics of our example business. While some staffing services specialize in just one industry—such as health care—this 12 year-old firm has entered new markets steadily for the past few years. They currently place administrative assistants, computer programmers, call center staff, manufacturing labor, machinists, child care providers, and substitute teachers.
With a continual turnover of contract workers and offsite punch ins as the norm, this agency couldn’t cope with their timekeeping and scheduling system. Though it was partially automated, the technology was 10 years old and it couldn’t provide the number of job codes they required. The mobile app malfunctioned frequently and didn’t support the latest time clocks.
A staffing firm simultaneously serves two classes of clients; the temp contractors they place and the businesses who use the workers. Each of the players trust in the office for accuracy. The don’t want to overpay the temps, and the hourly contractors are, understandably, especially sensitive to timekeeping accuracy.
Solution – Workforce Management Suite
The Workforce Management Suite time and attendance tool, TimeWorksPlus, promptly solved a multitude of problems. The Workforce Management Suite mobile app allows contract workers to punch in on their mobile device wherever they are. Because the PunchLogic function has virtually done away with missed and duplicate punches, timekeeping accuracy has improved significantly.
