Looking for a time and attendance solution is not an easy undertaking. While the web is a powerful tool that can help you quickly browse through various vendor offerings, you won’t a true picture of what each vendor can actually provide.

3 Key Features To Look For In A Time And Attendance Solution

Here are three features to look for:

  1. Support

This is an important feature, yet, many companies unwittingly ignores it and instead focuses all of their attention on the price. Price is incredibly important. No one wants to pay more that they actually should and it’s within their right to make sure that’s the case. However, focus too much on the price, and at the expense of everything else, and you will likely end up with the cheapest solution that will not meet your requirements, may not even last for 5 years, or worse, with little, to no support.

  1. Industry Expertise

Employment Acts are being amended by several jurisdictions in order to keep pace with the 21 century workforce expectations. The time and attendance you select should be easily scalable to adhere to applicable laws as they change. Make sure you select a provider that can proactively monitor employment laws and regulations to help you keep pace with changes that could affect your business, whether –you want to minimize payroll costs, or are looking to automate data gathering compliance tasks.

  1. Self-Service Offerings

Today’s employees do not want to waste time calling their HR department to request time-off. Your provider’s solution should have capabilities within its application, for employees to review personal information, view overtime and hours worked, and make vacation requests. An employee self-service solution like ATS TimeWork OnDemand is accessible through any Internet browser (Google Chrome, FireFox Opera), smartphones, desktop and tablet apps, that enables employees to perform a variety of HR-related tasks on their own, without needing to file paperwork with — their HR or payroll practitioner.

Some companies start of with a list of things that they are looking for in a provider as a starting point. If you do not have a list of requirements, it’s a good idea to write a simple one that will help you compare your options. The right vendor can help you streamline your current manual business practices so that you can focus more time on other tasks that can propel your organization towards its profitable goals.

Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry

July 20th, 2017 | Posted by ATS in Google | Machine Learning | Recruitment Software - (Comments Off on Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry)

When Google announced it was entering the recruitment space, some wondered why? A behemoth like Google would have done its due diligence before deciding to use its power to offer job seekers and employers alike a difference choice.

 

Google Is On The Verge Of Shaking Up The Recruitment Industry

In her article,  for HR Dive, titled Google for Jobs now open to site owners and job seekers Valerie Bolden-Barrett writes in part;

“Google for Jobs is a potential game-changer for employers and job seekers that stands to revolutionize recruiting. Right now, the new search largely pulls from major recruiting websites to formulate search results — but this new behavior could change how the big job boards work. They were already keeping an eye on changing behaviors from applicants that opted for mobile capabilities. Google could further disrupt the marketplace.

Much like LinkedIn and Glassdoor, which forced employers to reconsider external channels of input, Google for Jobs could herald changes in recruitment strategy. Google’s use of AI and machine-learning in the process is nothing less than what’s expected of an innovative high-tech company, and is largely in-line with what experts predicted for online recruiting going forward.”

It has also been reported that the new job search engine will have filters to narrow down jobs. For example, a candidate can sort by full-time or part-time, the job titles, category and posting date. And, that Google will also add a filter for commute times, so candidates do not have to apply for dream positions that require sitting in traffic for two hours.
