What is workforce management?

Workforce management is an integrated set of processes that helps maximize employee productivity and efficiency. It helps businesses of all sizes retain the right levels of staffing to meet customer requirements while maintaining profit levels.

There are five key areas of workforce management:

 
""

Workforce scheduling

Helps businesses manage employees’ skills and compliance requirements.
""

Time and work data collection

To create actionable reports and insights into labor usage.
""

Leave management

To process requests for paid leave, with visibility into potential staffing and liability implications.
""

Task and activity management

Provides a view of resource requirements to ensure work can be completed on time.
""

Time and attendance tracking

Lets you capture real-time information to compare with predicted and reported times.

Why use workforce management tools?

Workforce management and time tracking software automates some of the tasks performed by Human Resources departments, like attendance tracking, workforce scheduling and forecasting. 

The objective of workforce management is to give organizations the tools they need to become more efficient. It helps them run effectively by assigning the right person to the right task at the right time.

The benefits of workforce management software

Whether you run a small business or a large corporation, workforce management tools from Sage will help your business grow and develop. From increased productivity to better business insights, the key benefits include:

""

Increased staff productivity

Workforce management offers employees greater visibility and control of scheduling. It provides a transparent work schedule, for better time management. On the other hand, employers benefit from a drop in absences, late arrivals, early departures, extended breaks and fraudulent time-logging.
""

Reduced administrative time

A workforce management software benefits staff by automating processes like determining shift patterns and activity scheduling to minimise time spent on admin.
""

More powerful business insights

Get instant access to real time data to compare performance against budget and measure your success against objectives.
""

Improved customer satisfaction

Work trackers allow managers to see how staff perform against certain criteria to help make sure customer service meets high standards. These measurements can then be integrated into staff members’ performance appraisals.
""

Time and money savings

A workforce management software can help managers organize their teams and streamline tasks, making sure your company is not wasting money on staff that aren't required.
