The retail industry is weaning off controversial on-call scheduling software. Ahead of busy periods like the retail holiday season, here's what companies should look for in an effective schedule management solution.
By now, everyone knows how important it is for a business to be mobile. But going mobile can present some challenges too. It's relatively easy to communicate with people when everyone is in one location, but not always top of mind to do when people aren't physically in the office. And when you're not able to see your work colleagues every day, it can also be difficult to track the amount of work they complete.
The word "timesheets" can often evoke a feeling of dread for both employee and employer. If you’re an employee at one of the thousands of businesses utilizing timecards to track their staff, the end of the day doesn’t mean you can just pick up and leave. Instead, you have to fill out a timecard recounting your day of work.
For many years, software vendors have predicted the demise of the spreadsheet – but instead, it’s mutated from being a simple calculation tool to an application used for more complex business tasks. In the employee management world, small businesses to multinational corporations alike are still using spreadsheets to track staff hours, better utilize resources and improve business efficiencies.
As organizations continue to scrutinize operating costs and look for areas to drive efficiencies, shared services centers (SSCs) are a no-brainer. The concept of a multi-function SSC has been around for decades, but the strategic significance of consolidating resources such as accounts payable, HR, procurement and IT to lower costs, align skillsets, institute best practices, and drive economies of scale is still being realized by many expanding businesses.
The days of sitting day in and day out in a single office location are increasingly behind us. Faster mobile technologies, a new generation of employees who demand a better work/life balance, and stiff competition to identify the best talent – regardless of where they live – means teleworking has become the norm across all business sizes and industries.
