“Managing a multinational workforce is incredibly complex, with seemingly endless region-specific pay rules to ensure that all employees – regardless of where they work – are paid accurately. There is no “Workforce Management for Dummies” guide to ensure that organizations with far-flung employees are properly compensated, scheduled appropriately, and absences tracked accurately. Based on three-and-a-half decades of experience, and significant, ongoing investments in global product capabilities, Kronos offers the industry’s most respected and widely used workforce management solution.”
