News Facts

  • Organizations around the world are overcoming their unique challenges by deploying the Workforce Ready HCM cloud platform.
    • Mammoth Resorts - With four unique mountain destinations, the Mammoth Resorts workforce fluctuates from 1,100 off-season employees to nearly 4,500 peak-season employees. With Workforce Ready, Mammoth has a single-source HCM solution that simplifies the crucial seasonal hiring process, provides real-time data and comprehensive reporting to support better workforce decisions, and minimizes compliance risks associated with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and complex California labor laws.
    • Dowco, Inc. - Dowco is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of products for the marine and power sports industries. Following deployment of Workforce Ready, it experienced a 20 percent increase in productivity thanks to improved alignment between staffing and production. More importantly, Dowco eliminated the burden of manual, paper-driven processes, allowing the HR team to focus on reinventing company culture through technology and engaging employees through self-service.
    • Rehab Resources - Workforce Ready replaced manual, time-consuming processes previously used by Rehab Resources, and the suite's ease-of-use prompted the organization to double the number of employees using the platform within 18 months of initial implementation. With 900 employees, Rehab Resources' physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists provide services at skilled nursing facilities, short-term rehab programs, hospitals, schools, and other outpatient locations. Workforce Ready tracks professional licensing and certifications, automating alerts for expiring credentials to minimize compliance risks. The solution identifies which employees are qualified to work at specific facilities, simplifying scheduling to make managers more productive. Employees are also able to punch in and out remotely via a tablet application.
    • Saint-Gobain PAM UK - Saint-Gobain PAM UK is a leading supplier of iron products to the water, construction, and utilities industries, and infrastructure and civil engineering projects, from international pipelines to domestic drainpipes. With 350 employees across three sites in the U.K., the manufacturer replaced its manual spreadsheet time and attendance processes with Workforce Ready for time and labor management. Visibility into the workforce has improved and supervisors are now empowered to manage their teams more effectively.
  • Rapid international expansion of Workforce Ready continues, with organizations in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, and the U.K. now leveraging the solution.
  • Workforce Ready continues to transform the human resources experience, optimize workforce management, and manage continually evolving, complex compliance requirements, such as FLSA, with recent enhancements including:
    • Additional compliance functionality to simplify year-end reporting for ACA, enhanced support of working time regulations in the European Union, and new payroll-based journal reporting requirements, which is particularly important for healthcare organizations;
    • A unified user experience that includes new workflow options, streamlined benefits enrollment and administration processes, and additional notifications to ensure managers and employees are communicating important information effectively;
    • Expanded scheduling functionality that makes building better schedules even easier, as well as more time tracking and time-off management capabilities to unlock newfound efficiencies; and
    • An innovative software development relationship with Google for Work has yielded further integrations between Workforce Ready and Google Calendar, Contacts, Drive, and Maps to aid productivity for organizations globally that use both platforms.
