ATS TimeWork Drives Productivity And Helps Businesses Achieve Their Financial Goals Faster


It has been said that the great recession (depression, depending on who you talk to) of 2008 affected so many people and their livelihoods that the scars have still not healed. In fact, many people who lost their jobs during that period have either stopped looking or have changed their field in the hope, that going back to school to retrain, will lead them on a path to finding a job.


University and college graduates have been enormously affected as well and many of them will tell you that their inability to secure a job in their field if further proof that the recession has not abated, for them. It wasn’t too long ago university grads, was assured of a finding a job after their first or second interview. That was several years ago, today however, even students with advanced degrees, including MBAs are finding the job market just as hard to penetrate. A recent poll found that “post-secondary students said they would need to borrow money to pay for tuition, living expenses and books. Although about a quarter expected to owe less than $10,000 by the time they graduate, almost three quarters (73 per cent) expected to owe more than $10,000, including 40 per cent who said they’d likely be on the hook for $25,000 or more of student debt.”


What was most striking in the report was that several of the students surveyed believed they would pay the debt in a relative short time after graduation. That in itself is a very optimistic view. Let’s hope these bright eyed students meet their forecast. In closing, let’s also hope these students and the millions of other workers that were also affected by the recession, can eventually land a job.

The Benefits Of Workforce Management Training

It has been said that implementation is the bread and butter of any time and attendance project and while this is true, the same should be said for training. It’s therefore, not uncommon for us to get request for additional training, from our customers, several months after the system deployment. Whether you’re operating in locally, regionally or on a global scale, day-to-day business processes are often time-consuming. And, if your company is one of the few still using some kind of antiquated punch clocks, chances are its costing valuable time and money to operate that way. With ATS Time and Attendance Training, learn how to use built-in modules that are designed to address these pain points and drive better business performance.

Why is training so important? Well, if your departmental managers/supervisors are not fully trained, chances are you will not gain user acceptance, which means they will not use the system. For example, some companies will wait to train end-users prior to going live. To get the best out of your time and attendance system, we suggest, preparing users who will need to perform edits on a daily basis with training as part of the business management process overview. This ensures that employee productivity does not take a nose dive after go-live and business operations continue without disruption.

To help your employees gain a thorough knowledge of ATS time and attendance system, ATS offers several hands-on training programs. These programs address the unique needs of your departments and covers specific requirements within the software. The training programs will teach you not only program functionality, but more importantly, how to use the system to the benefit of your organization.

On-Site Training –ATS offers on-site training for customers who prefers that their users be trained at their facility. On-site training classes allow the flexibility of adapting the class duration and training topics to those most applicable to your company’s environment, while also allowing for the training of multiple users without asking them to travel away from their work environments.

On-Demand Learning –offers the convenience of Internet-based sessions that are available whenever you are. All you need is a computer, and high-speed Internet connection. On-Demand Learning is an ideal way to review material, acquaint new hires with basic software skills, and with the aid of an ATS professional train your staff in remote offices.

Lunch and Learns- are fee-based 1-hour real-time training sessions on various topics of the ATS TimeWork product. You will walk away learning a specific task or understanding a feature that you can immediately use in your daily work. We hold them monthly and have a full schedule available

Very few companies can effectively use a time and attendance right out of the box. It must be modified to suit the business requirement of an organization. So, if you are in the market for a new system, then make sure sufficient time is set aside for training. That’s one ROI you cannot afford to overlook.
