Workforce Management: A Closed-Loop System Is Best
In many businesses, manual processes and multiple systems are used to maintain workforce management tasks. The problem with this approach is that information is not consistent across all systems, which can lead to errors, missing data, and an overall lack of visibility in the organization. A closed-loop system for workforce management unifies HR, payroll, and time and attendance data by using a centralized database of information.
With a closed-loop system, there is feedback and information provided by the system to compare the current state against the desired state. A closed loop for HR will enable you to measure results and drive improvements to meet the compliance and operating objectives. It enables you to ensure defined policies are enforced, which can be a big challenge if HR relies on managers and others to enforce policies and capture information related to policies. Again, this challenge grows with more locations.
A single system for HR, payroll, and time and attendance will create transparency throughout the organization and make it easier to pull the reports.
It is important that the feedback is automated to enable monitoring through dashboards. It is also important for the system to constantly provide feedback on data quality and gaps. If there are gaps in critical data, then the system won’t be able to provide accurate data and analytics; dashboards and reports will be missing information, and managers will lack confidence in the analysis.
