The benefits of implementing a good Workforce Management Solution are immeasurable across an organisation, but these systems don’t just benefit the bottom line, they can also have a huge impact on employees too. Far more than just giving them the opportunity to clock in and out easily and book their annual leave, Workforce Management Solutions can contribute to a happy and healthy working environment. Employee engagement is crucial for increased productivity and also to attract and retain valuable staff.
Here are just a few of the ways that it can help employee engagement in your workplace:
When a member of staff has control over their working life, it demonstrates a level of trust from their managers. Being able to manage their own hours and annual leave by using self-service software empowers employees. The easy access to the system means they can stay on top of their own schedules and also keep track of the workflows of their colleagues. This not only benefits the employees, but also means that managers don’t have to manually create tasks for checking time and attendance and holiday allowance, all they have to do is wait for the absence requests to come in.
Looming deadlines and tight schedules are a mainstay of any work environment, but having an automated reporting system means one less thing for your employees to worry about. It can save a huge amount of time compared to manual reporting, meaning more time to focus on what they really need to do. Managers save time, employees save time. What’s not to love?
In many companies without a designated HR function, time and attendance is managed by the administrative department, which means additional stress on their resources as well as the unnecessary steps of managing workflow through someone else. If an employee has access to straightforward software, it removes the need for monitoring time and attendance to be a slow and cumbersome task.
