  • Seven Little-Known Ways a Workforce Management System Can Benefit Schools

    Saving time, improving efficiency, and ensuring compliance with labor laws are all common benefits of an automated workforce management solution. But did you know the right solution, when used by savvy K-12 leaders, also can save schools money and improve student outcomes?

  • Tracking Labor for Grant-Funded Projects More Accurately and Efficiently

    Colleges and universities that receive federal grants must keep careful records of the time and effort their employees spend on grant-funded projects. Keeping track of all this information can be a difficult process, especially when employees are working on multiple projects simultaneously—and many institutions admit they struggle with this task. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

  • Getting the Numbers Right

    Nearly three-quarters of higher education institutions use grants to fund their staff. But how well are the institutions tracking and reporting their grant-related labor costs?

  • Where Does the Money Go?

    Where Does the Money Go? Survey shows state and local governments and K-12 districts need help to improve the tracking of labor costs to grants and projects.

  • Limited Visibility: Public Sector Absence Management Challenge

    Public sector organizations are struggling to preserve critical programs and maintain high levels of citizen service in the face of workforce reductions. Relying on cumbersome manual processes to track, calculate, and accrue absence- and leave-related information can lead to large, unexpected downstream costs that may threaten the financial viability of a public sector organization. From large employee payouts upon separation and retirement, lost revenue due to understaffing, disruptions in continuity of services, and improper payments, the failure to manage absenteeism accurately and efficiently can have serious consequences for the public sector.

  • Powerful, Flexible Schedule Automation for the Public Sector

    With budget pressures and public scrutiny at all-time highs, public sector organizations are looking for ways to control costs, increase efficiency, and maximize productivity. 

    Without a robust, automated scheduling solution, state and local governments and school districts are at distinct disadvantage. With labor accounting for half or more of state and local government budgets, and as much as 80 percent of education budgets, the potential for cost savings through automated scheduling is significant.

    Enterprise automated scheduling solutions incorporate the sophisticated rules engines and analysis tools that are critical for capturing employee time information, enabling complete and accurate investigation and insight.

  • Public Sector Workforce Management: ERP Extension vs. Best-of-Breed

    When it comes to workforce management support systems for the public sector, ERPs have a number of shortcomings, including workforce automation, scheduling, leave management, activities tracking, timekeeping attestation, and labor law compliance.

    When managers have insufficient predictive and decision-support mechanisms for overtime, leave, labor law compliance, and scheduling, it puts the organization, its employees, and its budgets in jeopardy. A best-of-breed workforce management approach delivers a completely automated and configurable solution without the need for costly customization.

  • HR and Payroll Automation: Achieving Accountability and Transparency in Government and Education

    The current economy compels leaders in the government and educational sectors to focus on areas that can provide the greatest efficiencies and operational gains. 

    Gains from labor cost control, workforce productivity improvements, and transparency to HR data can be realized through the automation of HR and payroll processes.
