Companies are upgrading their workforce management technology to offer better and secure remote working facilities that will improve the work’s quality and efficiency.

Covid-19 has posed a challenge to organizations worldwide, and it will forever alter how many workplaces operate. The workplace will never be the same again. Businesses must now consider workforce management’s future and rethink how their existing structures and processes will function in this new environment.

The better news is that this technology is already available. It offers contactless fever detection clocking terminals, software that automates routine and complicated employee management tasks while providing a wealth of business data.

There’s never been a better time to look over or update the workforce management system. Here are some of the areas in which it can help the companies plan, manage, and adapt to the “new normal.”

Employee health and safety

Workforce management software enables companies to manage the employees’ health and safety better. They have the tools to ensure optimum shift patterns and rotations that take health and safety standards, processes, and regulations into consideration. The system will tell the companies working when and where, with whom the team members have communicated, whether they have been self-isolating, and when it is safe for them to return to work. It will also let the company know whether a return-to-work interview is required.

Workforce planning and optimization

The pandemic has brought attention to the significance of flexible, innovative workforce management planning and the need for accurate real-time data. Without comprehensive information on employee time, attendance, absences, activities, skills, and scheduling, it’s nearly impossible to manage the workforce efficiently. Employers must now figure out how to optimize and plan for fluctuating demand and environmental conditions.

Managing new ways of working

Employers were aware of the benefits of providing flexible and remote working options even before Covid-19. Increased productivity, decreased absenteeism, and recruiting and retaining talent are just a few of the advantages. A good system will offer a fully automated system to the company to track hours worked, keep Flexi balances, and handle planned and unplanned absences. Employees should clock in or use honor-based email timesheets to log attendance on a computer, tablet, or mobile device.
