Challenges

Focused on eliminating unemployment, Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona employs people at its retail stores and provides janitorial, maintenance, and landscaping staff to hundreds of organizations. Goodwill managers struggled to correct employees’ missed punches and make historical edits in an undersized system. Limited pay codes didn’t reflect the range of positions that some employees worked. Employee data and accrual balances weren’t always accurate, and limited reporting didn’t meet the needs of managers and HR staff.

What Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona needed was a solution that could:

  • Show employees’ missed punches and easily allow corrections
  • Provide accurate employee data, including real-time accrual balances
  • Enable unlimited pay codes to track employee time worked at a number of positions
  • Generate real-time reports to help managers track overtime and payroll to stay within budget
“The Kronos solution is clear and intuitive. Employee data is correct. We can run reports and track anything with pay codes. Data flows more accurately than previously.”
