How Workforce Management Technology can Help Companies Adapt to New Normal

HR Tech Outlook | Monday, May 03, 2021

Workforce management software allows businesses to effectively monitor their workers' health and safety. They have the means to maintain optimal change schedules and rotations that take into account health and safety practices, procedures, and regulations.

Fremont, CA: Covid-19 has presented a threat to organizations all over the world, and it will forever change the way many workplaces function. Nothing will ever be the same in the workplace again. Businesses must now understand the future of workforce management and reconsider how their current systems and processes can operate in this new world.

The good news is that this technology already exists. It provides contactless fever detection clocking terminals, as well as applications that automate routine and complex employee management activities while collecting a wealth of business data.

There has never been a better time to review and upgrade the workforce management system. Here are some of the ways it can assist businesses in planning, managing, and adapting to the “new normal."

Employee Safety and Health 

Workforce management software allows businesses to effectively monitor their workers' health and safety. They have the means to maintain optimal change schedules and rotations that take into account health and safety practices, procedures, and regulations. The system would notify the organizations operating when and where the team members have communicated if they have self-isolated and when it is safe for them to return to work. It will also inform the organization if a return-to-work interview is needed.

Workforce Planning and optimization

The pandemic has highlighted the importance of flexible, creative workforce management planning, as well as the need for reliable real-time data. It is virtually impossible to handle the workforce effectively without detailed details on employee time, attendance, absences, tasks, expertise, and scheduling. Employers must now determine how to optimize and prepare for varying demand and environmental factors.

Managing Various Ways of Working

Even before Covid-19, employers were conscious of the advantages of offering flexible and remote working choices. Increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and the ability to attract and retain talent are just a few of the benefits. A successful system would provide the organization with a fully integrated system for tracking hours worked, maintaining Flexi balances, and handling scheduled and unplanned absences. Employees can use a computer, phone, or mobile device to clock in or use honor-based email timesheets to record attendance.
