Kronos for State and Local Government

Advanced government workforce management approaches are essential given the intense pressure on state and local governments to preserve precious budget dollars and help ensure the continuity of services and programs. Against the backdrop of a weakening economy and plummeting revenues, government leaders need to be more careful than ever about how they spend their budget dollars.

And, because the largest portion of state and local government operational budgets are tied to workforce expenditures, the focus on these expenditures also represents the greatest opportunity for budgetary savings and operational improvement.

With Kronos for State and Local Government, we help control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and maintain accountability & transparency by providing:

  • Automated and streamlined management of your attendance and leave policies — no matter how complex.
  • On-demand visibility with labor analytics showing performance against targets, such as grants and leave liability — so you know right away if there’s a problem.
  • Mobile management to support a paperless workflow and employee self service for your on-the-go workforce.
  • A robust Public Safety scheduling solution to meet the staffing, deployment, and communication needs of first responders.
  • Achieving a Lean Government Workforce

    Making workforce management processes more operationally efficient through the application of lean can result in higher capacity, even if the size and number of these processes remain unchanged.
