Managers have a lot to manage. On the front end, they make sure employees deliver high quality products and service. On the back end, they evaluate labor within the parameters of operation, but many small items often get overlooked. A cloud based time and attendance software has the functionality to customize Alerts, which work as an automated HR assistant in workforce management.
Here are 3 examples of how using Alerts can help your productivity and labor management:
- Skipped break or meal – This is not just relevant for union shops where breaks and meals are strictly regulated. Let’s say you run a retail operation and business goes absolutely bonkers during the holiday season. The last thing you want is burnout among your customer service associates. In a cloud based time and attendance software, you can customize an alert for breaks and meals, which appears as warning icon on your Manager Dashboard.
- Approaching overtime – A well-planned schedule gets easily thrown off track when an employee calls in sick. Everyone scrambles to cover, but this may add more hours to an employee’s time sheet. If you’re carefully watching payroll budget, you may not want to go into overtime pay rates. A standard punch employee time clock is only for time tracking, not labor analytics. Whereas an alert in a cloud based time and attendance software can notify of you which employees are nearing overtime.
- Customized alerts for your business – Some sectors, such as financial services, need license updates for employees. Other sectors, such as health care, need continuing education certifications for employees. Nearly every business sector has some sort of requirement for employees (such as medical check-ups and training). With a cloud based time and attendance software, you can customize the alerts you need for your business.
