UK organisations embracing workforce management technology
According to a new report commissioned by Kronos Incorporated and conducted by Aberdeen Group, UK organisations consistently show they are more likely to implement strategic workforce management solutions such as absence and leave management or analytics compared to international counterparts.
The results of the Aberdeen Group report, “Productivity: Managing and Measuring a Workforce” (January 2015) confirm that organisations that automate workforce management processes with fully integrated solutions – as opposed to operating point solutions in silos – outperform their competitors.
Brenda Morris, general manager, UK, Kronos, commented, “Whilst the UK economy is seeing steady growth, conditions remain turbulent. Organisations face the threat of increased global competition, rising costs, and compliance risks. Although the survey highlights how organisations have already gleaned benefits from automating some core workforce management processes, this is often done in silos and greater benefits can be achieved by implementing a more integrated solution. By using technology to automate core processes, organisations will free up employee time to focus on more meaningful activities, which creates a more engaging, motivating work environment and in turn delivers increased productivity. There are benefits to be gained for businesses of all sizes and if harnessed effectively across all areas of a business it can clearly help them compete more effectively in an increasingly competitive marketplace.”
