Managing a police force, correctional facility, fire rescue squad, or municipal government – no matter how large or small – can be a tedious task. With rosters of employees working around the clock to ensure public safety, there’s tons going on, which can become pretty difficult to keep track of.

Cue workforce management solutions!

When it comes to keeping up with the hustle, bustle, and ins and out of every day, a workforce management solution could be your saving grace – with the best solutions helping you to track the activities of your employees far beyond just when they clock in and out of work.

Below are 3 ways public sector HR leaders can benefit from introducing a workforce management solution to their team.

Better Manage Time & Attendance

Workforce management solutions keep you in the loop of who’s on the clock and when, so there are never any surprises or no-shows. If one employee requests PTO but in order to grant it to them, their position needs to be filled, the software will comply to ensure everyone is where they need to be and minimum staffing requirements are always met.

Minimize Payroll Costs

Doing payroll manually can be confusing, time consuming, and even costly as mistakes may literally cost you. Workforce management solutions can automate your entire process from start to finish by managing compliance, rules, holiday pay, straight time and time and a half, premium assignments, overtime, FLSA calculations and shift differentials, handling multiple pay periods, detecting open and closed pay periods to track when pay periods need to be closed, and so much more.

Stay on Top of Employee Skillsets

Say goodbye to the days of scrambling to fill a shift and accidentally placing an unqualified employee in the empty slot. Workforce management solutions can ensure that the right person, with the right skillset, is in the right position, at the right time, every time.
