Clemson University Looks for Increased Efficiency with New Workforce Management Tools
Clemson University has recently decided to implement additional workforce management tools in an effort to increase employee productivity, decrease costs, and minimize risks associated with compliance.
According to a recent announcement, the decision to roll out the new tools was based in part on the university's ability to leverage their current Kronos implementation to achieve a 40-percent reduction in overtime costs. The plan includes upgrading to the most recent version of the Kronos platform, taking advantage of a redesigned user interface. Clemson will implement additional features, including:
"We are strongly committed to faculty and student success and always strive to improve all facets of operations to enhance that," commented Kathy Shivar, HR manager for student affairs at Clemson University, in a prepared statement. "Adding more innovation in our workforce management processes makes sense for increased efficiency. The latest Kronos offerings will modernize many critical functions and will offer a single, seamless process as opposed to working with disparate systems. Overall, we anticipate big productivity and cost benefits, which will further help us advance our student achievement goals."
According to the university, the new tools will allow previously manual HR processes to be moved into the digital space, saving significant time and increasing information transparency.
