Workforce management solutions help manufacturers control labor costs, minimize compliance risks, and maximize productivity of their entire workforce — both salaried and hourly. Today, most manufacturers track hourly employees’ benefit data such as vacation time and sick time. Yet, they are much less disciplined when tracking their salaried workforce. Salaried employees, such as researchers, engineers, and project managers, often work on projects that are tied back to customer contracts. To understand when a project is profitable — and why — manufacturers must measure all of the associated costs. All of this adds up where it matters most — better bottom-line results.
