Workforce management systems can boost productivity and optimize performance
Having the right workforce management systems and analytics technology in place can help public sector organizations improve their ability to make timely operational decisions about their workforce, recent research has been able to reveal.
Organizational processes that are simply out-of-date and legacy technology can limiting some public organizations’ access to the right information. However, implementing workforce management and analytics technology is providing some leaders with key decision-support information essential for critical workforce decisions.
Using real time data can provide a host of useful features, including optimized staffing levels and capacity, improved efficiencies, avoiding under-staffing customer contact areas, and reduced overtime costs. Leaders were able to make timely decisions since they no longer had to wait for manually generated analysis of historical data that may be weeks or months old.
“Growing organizational complexity and an increasing need for speed mean that timely workforce information and analytics are becoming essential operational tools for decision-making.” said Shannon Jackson, Associate Director, Leadership and Human Resources Research, the organization who published the research.
“In lieu of data and facts, many operational leaders are still relying on experience, gut, and manually produced spreadsheets to make decisions. Updated technologies are required to help close the gap between corporate planning and operational execution.”
