Third party advertisement: How a multi-generational workforce management approach impacts payroll
21 September 2017
By 2020, organisations will have five generations in their workforce - Millennials accounting for 50%. Younger generations are seeking a very different work/life balance compared to traditionalists and baby boomers, and Gen X workers are caught in the middle. Each generation is known for very different approaches to their work responsibilities and this can create conflict with a multi-generational workforce and your time and attendance, scheduling and absence management solutions need to keep pace. Join Craig Fearon from SumTotal Systems for this informational session on how today’s workforce management systems are more than just time clocks and can help your organisation effectively manage today’s and tomorrow’s multi-generational workforce.
In this webinar you will learn how to:
- Enabling self-service for employees: An engaged workforce is a more productive workforce. Employees, especially those from the younger generations, will want to be involved in the process. For example employees will want to be able to provide supervisors with their availability when they can work and when they cannot. This level of self-service allows supervisors to ensure that when they are creating schedules, they have full visibility and do their best to accommodate employee availability. During the session we will cover a number of areas where employees can be more involved and engaged through self-service
- Improved absence and leave management: How do you manage your holiday, sick leave and other time off plans? Are absences fully documented and tracked including on the schedule so adjustments can be made in advance to compensate for employees that are unavailable? Are employees only allowed to take what they are entitled to? Or are your absences really uncontrolled? Between an aging workforce generation and a younger workforce generation, your organisation is facing tremendous challenges today related to absence management. Recent studies have shown that workplace absences cost the UK economy £18billion in lost productivity and this is increasing.
- Implementing and monitoring a fair and equitable attendance policy: All organisations will have policies related to when employees are expected to show up to work, when and how long they have for lunch and when they are expected to leave work. While these policies are on the books, few organisations effectively enforce them and when they do, rarely is it consistent across supervisors. Ineffective enforcement and monitoring of attendance policies can lead to conflict, resentment, lower productivity and more in the workplace
- Providing pervasive access to your workforce management system when and where employees expect it: The days of employees interacting with your time and attendance system through punching a time clock is over. The younger generations demand pervasive access to all systems that they are involved with and impact their work life balance. By not having pervasive access on–demand for employees, your organisation will be falling behind
This webinar will take place on Tuesday 26 September 2017 at 3pm - 4pm.
