Why a Closed-Loop Payroll and HR System is Best

Workforce Management A Closed-Loop System is Best

A closed-loop system for workforce management unifies HR, payroll, and time and attendance data by using a centralized database of information.

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.

What’s Missing from Your Workforce Management?

Let’s dig in and find out so we can help you fill the gaps. If you’re looking for ways to update or streamline your workforce management efforts, this guide is an excellent place to start.

Act

In a busy work environment, it is very time-consuming and challenging to pull business data from multiple sources, leading to a reduction in accountability, accurate reporting, and informed decision-making. Companies need a solution that tracks this important information for them and provides alerts and dashboard views that bring visibility and, in turn, accountability into the organization. This enables them to easily report to executives the level of compliance in critical areas to reduce the risk of costly penalties and legal action. A closed-loop compliance model ensures nothing falls through the cracks.
