Over the past decade, improvements in HR technology continue to be abundant. Yet, many organizations hesitate to implement technology based on lack of knowledge, cost, or simply being comfortable with a tired, manual process that is seemingly getting the job done.

The question is, if there is access to a seamless transition into a simple, easy to use HR workforce management system that mitigates micromanaging, would you still remain with your manual processes?

When it comes to effectively running a business, efficiency is the main goal. Efficiency is defined as signifying a peak level of performance that uses the least amount of inputs to achieve the highest amount of output. So, what can businesses do to increase efficiency with technology, even when current processes appear to be working just fine?

Workforce management systems are designed to increase the level of efficiency and productivity within an organization, helping managers stay on top of important tasks without micromanaging employees in order to do so. These systems work to simplify processes from scheduling, time and attendance, to payroll and more. Listed below are pivotal organizational improvements inherent in workforce management technology to eliminates micromanaging.

Cloud Technology

Using the cloud, all data is saved within one platform, creating a secure, accessible space for business data and information to be stored.

With the use of cloud technology, permission sets can be set to allow staff access to HR information within the cloud. Employees can view their schedules in real-time while managers can make changes to accommodate absences and callouts on the fly. With information available in real-time from any device, it is easy to plan ahead, make shift schedules changes as needed, and eliminate the need for micromanaging.

Additionally, managers can eliminate the need for micromanaging with easy access to analytics that provide valuable data on employee performance. This information is critical when evaluating an employee for a potential promotion or to identify those employees that are falling behind and require a performance improvement plan.

Streamline Workflows

No need for micromanaging these time consuming and error prone manual tasks that are virtually eliminated with a workforce management solution.

Make it Work with HR & Payroll


A business must ensure that employees are paid accurately and on time. Manual systems used in the past are prone to errors. Integrating payroll into your workforce management platform is essential in ensuring an accurate payroll.
