WILLIAMSBURG, Va., YMCA Chief Human Resource Officers (CHRO) Annual Conference,

Kronos Incorporated today announced that deploying in the Kronos Cloud is gaining continued momentum with YMCAs across the country. Increasingly, YMCAs are deploying Kronos Workforce Central and Workforce Ready suites of workforce management solutions in the Kronos Cloud, relying on Kronos to manage the solutions and resulting in faster implementations and quicker return on investment.

News Facts

  • By managing their workforces with Kronos solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud, YMCAs are able to streamline workforce management so staff can focus more on the YMCA mission of helping children, families, and individuals reach their full potential. YMCA of Hunterdon County, N.J.; Greater Boston; Greater Hartford; Greater Indianapolis; Metropolitan Dallas; and Middle Tennessee are among the many YMCAs currently deployed in the Kronos Cloud to optimize tight budgets, improve operating efficiencies, and manage their diverse workforces.
  • YMCAs need to manage a complex workforce with a high percentage of part-time, temporary, and seasonal employees who work multiple jobs across dispersed locations. Manual processes are time consuming and error-prone and hundreds of YMCA branches, camps, and program sites are using Kronos today to automate and streamline processes to more effectively control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity and engagement.
  • Many YMCAs are made up of a multigenerational workforce, with a high percentage of employees being millennials who are closely connected to their smartphones. By implementing Kronos mobile solutions, YMCAs can manage employees on the go. Managers and employees can use their smartphones to instantly take action on tasks and make effective decisions from anywhere, anytime.
  • Kronos also helps YMCAs stay in compliance with federal regulations including FMLA and FLSA and helps meet safety and regulatory requirements by ensuring staffing levels are compliant and that only qualified and certified employees are scheduled for specific tasks.
