Time management and Workforce Management
Time recording is the basis for wage and salary systems, but also for modern workforce management.
In the modern world of work 4.0, time recording is moving away from simply controlling the employee to a model at eye level: the employee uses time recording as an instrument for work-life balance and compensates for phases of overtime by taking shorter or free days.
Companies benefit from a flexitime system because employees are more willing to adjust their working hours and also to work long hours and overtime only when a greater amount of work is required. For example, production peaks can be absorbed without additional personnel.
A good time recording software has many positive aspects:
- Working hours and absences are processed automatically.
- Compliance with legal and collective agreement conditions is monitored.
- Managers or co-determination committees can check compliance.
- Warning notices in case of rule violations support the management.
- Working time data can be used in personnel planning using analysis tools.
Working time data is transferred to ERP and can be used and analyzed for wage and salary data and head-count cost accounting.
In industries with intensive use of personnel, such as the health care industry or retail, workforce management allows existing potentials and hidden reserves to be better exploited through time recording. The personnel deployment planning distributes all necessary working hours evenly and as desired among all employees.
Positive results from the company's point of view are increased effectiveness and quality assurance, from the employee's point of view the flexibility gained through a better work-life balance in the digital working world.
