With workers concerned about their health and job security, it is vital payroll teams look at what they can do to improve confidence, so workers don’t lose faith in the company they work for. When the bedrock of trust between an employer and employees is the payment they receive for their day’s work, this is an area that simply can’t go awry.
Yet, with so much upheaval during 2020 – impacting construction sites, the roll out of furlough schemes, fluctuating staff numbers, etc. – keeping a clear track of who is working where and when will not have been easy without a workforce management system in place.
These systems are not there simply to handle the scheduling of employee timetables, they also keep track of the actual hours worked – monitoring overtime, lateness and sick days for thousands of workers, whether they are full time, part time, contractors or sub-contractors, across multiple sites.
