Employee management systems can help improve overall staff productivity
Employee management systems are helping UK companies improve the overall productivity of their staff, which grew by 0.5 percent from the fourth calendar quarter (Oct to Dec) of 2015 to the first calendar quarter (Jan to Mar) of 2016, according to the latest Employment and Labour Market statistics released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
Output per hour in services rose by 0.5 percent in the first quarter on the previous quarter and was 1.1 percent higher than a year earlier. Output per hour in manufacturing rose by 0.7 percent on the previous quarter but was 1.5 percent lower than a year earlier.
Output per worker and output per job were 0.3 percent and 0.4 percent higher in the first quarter compared with the previous quarter, respectively. Average hours worked were broadly unchanged on the quarter, resulting in similar growth rates for each of these measures.
Whole economy unit labour costs were 0.4 percent higher in the first quarter compared with the previous quarter and 1.9 percent higher than the same quarter last year, as earnings and other labour costs have outpaced productivity. Unit wage costs in manufacturing grew by 0.4 percent on the previous quarter and by 2.5 percent compared with Quarter 1 2015.
Employee management systems – the key to better productivity
Tensor plc is a market leader in the employee management systems’ segment. We supply an extensive range of systems designed specifically to help HR departments record accurate data regarding the employee’s activity, their performance, as well as their attendance.
Our flagship WinTA.NET integrated workforce management solution incorporates a dedicated Absence Planning and Entitlement Management feature.
WinTA.NET is a web enabled, mobile / wireless technology based Time & Attendance system designed for those companies employing 20 people to 10,000+. The solution provides total control over the creation of working rules, Access Control, Job Costing and System Security and has specifically been designed for multiple companies, each managing multiple sites.
Our comprehensive, yet user-friendly software comes pre-loaded with graphical calendar charts that provide a colourful way of viewing an individual’s or a department’s absence records.
Each employee can be allocated different entitlements for absence such as annual leave or allowed sickness. As absence is booked and taken, the remainder available for each entitlement is updated. Entitlement formulae are used to calculate more complex entitlements calculated on a rising scale based upon length of service.
WinTA.NET supplies the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, the system would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then informs you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
