Unionized Labor Needs Configurable Timekeeping

Configurable workforce management software supports complex union rules and industry-specific cost requirements. These are rules that spreadsheets and HR employees can’t efficiently and consistently apply. If an organization’s workforce management software can’t customize to fit unionized labor needs, that organization is going to have a problem on its hands.

With WorkSight, organizations compensate employees for jobs worked based on any scheduling level necessary — their permanent position, their longer-term assignment, or their short-term job for the day. These three tiers ensure that the proper person gets paid the proper amount for the proper job. This is incredibly important — especially for unionized workers, who are held accountable at several levels.

Also, when calculating premium pay, organizations need to consider variables such as which employees possess certain skill levels, have earned additional certifications, are performing specific tasks, or are working weekends, holidays, vacation days, or hours and shifts considered to be less desirable.

Our customers’ schedules flow through to the timecard automatically without rekeying, and employees can record their efforts by work order. We make unionized labor timekeeping easy. With WorkSight, organizations can control costs, enhance cost accounting, and use the past to predict the future.

WorkSight can configure around any workforce management needs you might have.
