Workforce Management and Work Culture
Workforce Management systems are made to optimise your workforce and work culture. WFM helps ensure your employees are working to the best of their ability and track labour costs, absence and more.
Because of this push to be more streamlined, some employees will see this as a comment on their work. Instead of a positive organisational change.
To combat this mindset, employers need to act as they would with any change to the working day, and explain the benefits this will mean for their employees or company as a whole.
Ensuring WFM Adoption
The most prominent sore spot for employees when it comes to WFM is time and attendance tracking. Employees who are used to taking breaks, clocking in for their friends or arriving late, will suddenly need to be on time and clocked in to be paid.
These employees could kick up a fuss, but they are part of the exact reason you are adopting a WFM system.
Explain that thanks to the WFM system, everyone will now have more transparency over their pay packet. They will be able to see their timesheet, how many hours they’ve worked, any overtime gained and much more.
This system will also ensure a much fairer workplace, where people (if you choose) are paid for the hours they work.
Thanks to WFM clocking in and out methods, these timesheets will be more exact than ever, meaning fewer payroll queries and right pay for your employees.
With the Work Rota functionality, the workforce will now be correctly scheduled, meaning less pressure on employees. Health and Safety, fire and other regulations can also be met with WFM, so your workforce is always on a shift with the resources they need.
There’s also the fact that thanks to a WFM system, managers will have more time to manage. So workers will have more guidance and support when needed.
