In a world of Smart phones, social media and an app for just about everything, it was no surprise to read an article about sports teams embracing technology. According to an article in the Toronto Star and NFL.com, NFL latest to abandon old media for iPad, apps “20 of the league’s 32 teams have implemented iPads for playbooks or video study, a trend teams and developers say saves time, paper and, most importantly, money.”

Does this mean that all sports leagues will be rushing towards this new technology? It would be great if they all did, but change is difficult for many people to accept. More importantly, the issue of security will be top of mind for most NFL executives, coaches and players.  Another quote from the article cited the following; “In the US, Stanford University’s football team recently converted to digital playbooks, citing a desire to save money and reduce the team’s carbon footprint.”

In the National Football League where the playbook is regarded with the same level of security as the CIA and FBI affords the President of the United States, teams adopting new technology want to make sure their data is secure.

Today, more than ever, companies are keenly aware what type of functionality that need in an employee time management solution. Oddly enough, when shopping for a time and attendance system, these same companies forget their requirements and opt for a solution based on its price. We do agree that price is important but when selecting a time an employee time management solution, it is important to make sure the product matches your requirements. Otherwise, you will be selecting a solution that meets some of your requirements while everything else is blurred by the attractive price point.

Every company has specific needs when it comes to a time and attendance comparison. And, assuming every solution is the same can be costly and present problems when it comes time for implementation. You may have determined that the multiple spreadsheet approach to keeping track of employee hours, vacation and pay policies has become too complicated and time-consuming. It’s important that you get your key operational personnel involved as you assess the needs of your organization pertaining to your time and attendance comparison.

After sales support should be an important element within any time management solution comparison. Look for a company that can prove a level of support that meets your company’s expectations and ask for references that support such claims. All too often companies rely on flashy demos that create an illusion of what’s to come. And when a time and attendance solution is selected is based on flash you are usually buying a bill of goods.

Of course some companies have had bad experiences but, that’s not only with time and attendance. Has your company purchase a CRM, Talent Management or HRIS software based on price? If so, is it still meeting your needs? If not, why? Share your stories, good and bad.

We came across a wonderful article by Frances Burks titled “Disadvantage of Overtime Work” and the issues associated with this phenomenon including: health problems, employee performance and the financial drawback.

In recent years, a wave of lawsuits have uncovered the fact that some employers did not have an effective tool to track and control employee overtime and other pay premiums. While there are some similarities with how overtime is paid in some jurisdictions, others vary significantly. These overtime class action suits demonstrate the need for workplace compliance. 

The easiest way to improve compliance and protect your organization from wage and hour lawsuits is to implement the ATS time and attendance system. The ATS time and attendance will help your organization:

  • Apply multijurisdictional pay and work policies
  • Track, manage and pay daily, weekly and bi-weekly overtime, premiums, call- ins and collective bargaining agreement overtime pay
  • Provide accurate audit trails and records of hours worked in the event of wage and hour disputes
  • Automate employee pay and rate changes mandated by complex collective bargaining agreements
  • Ensure compliance with provincial, federal and state regulations such as FMLA and FLSA
  • Generate reports for wage and hour claims, wrongful termination litigation, and other legal inquiries
  • Provide audit trails and accurate records of hours worked in the event of a wage and hour audit

 The ATS time and attendance system rules engine has enhanced flexibility that can determine specific types of pay. The system optimizes employee resources and reduces labour costs with employee scheduling, labour forecasting and benefit accruals. Our system helps you gain insight into the labour activities and achieve bottom-line results.
