How To Manage Remote Staff Members

workforce management for remote workers Islandia

Despite a couple of high-profile companies recently pulling their offsite workers back to the office, the global trend of increased telecommuting is not slowing down.

According to Global Workplace Analytics: The percentage of employees (non-self-employed) who work at home has grown by 115% since 2005, nearly ten times faster than office-based labor force. http://globalworkplaceanalytics.com/telecommuting-statistics

While companies who allow telecommuting often benefit from decreased operating expenses, increased productivity, an expanded hiring pool, and happier employees, virtual offices can create challenges when it comes to Workforce Management.

Workforce Management Challenges for Employers With Remote Workers

  • Tracking time and attendance accurately
  • Employee schedule confusion
  • Time card submission
  • Shift trading
  • Overtime management
  • Incompatible technology

Telecommuting is made possible by technology that allows companies to provide their products or services to clients using a remote workforce. In addition, employees use technology to communicate, collaborate on projects, and interact with customers. In a similar way, Baron Workforce Management Suite brings industry-leading smart technology that makes Workforce Management easy for remote employees.

Baron Workforce Management Suite is the comprehensive Workforce Management system from baronHCM. It consists of Baron Time for onsite and offsite employee time and attendance and Baron Scheduling for scheduling both in-office and offsite workers.

Let’s look at the tools that address the pain points previously listed.

Tracking Time and Attendance for Remote Employees

Remote employees can clock into the Baron Time virtual time clock from their laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Supervisors have 24/7 oversight of who is working when and where.

What About Salaried Employees?

Contrary to a common misconception, tracking time and attendance is just as important for salaried workers as it is for hourly employees. Most labor laws apply to both hourly and salaried employees, thus business owners must have accurate records of clock in/out times, breaks, and meals. Accruals calculation, overtime pay compliance for non-exempt employees, and ACA work hours standards are just a few of the reasons that employers must track employee time and attendance accurately for all workers, regardless of how they are compensated. In addition, they need a paper trail to validate the records in case of an audit or labor dispute.

Sharing Scheduling Information

Baron Scheduling is the least complicated way to effectively schedule telecommuters. One of the most valued employee perks of telecommuting is flexible work hours (when allowed by management). For most organizations, however, it is usually necessary for team members to be online at the same time for at least a few hours during the day. This can be challenging if employees are spread among different time zones. Baron Scheduling has tools to manage all the complicated logistics of remote team scheduling. With centralized cloud-based schedule management, hours threshold SMS warnings, and automatic schedule notifications, Baron Scheduling has the tools to manage your workforce with ease.

Clear Up Scheduling Confusion

When schedules are centrally managed in a cloud-based system, supervisors and at-home workers are all on the same page and can access the information at any time. Automatic notices inform all necessary parties of critical scheduling and time card information.

Submitting Time Cards

Baron Time provides self-service time cards that employees can access 24/7 from any internet-enabled device. Remote staff members can enter time and verify time cards under customizable company rules. When they clock in or out, the time is captured immediately on their virtual time card. This eliminates the end-of-pay-period scramble that often results from outdated and non-automated old school manual timekeeping systems.

Easy Shift Trading

Baron Scheduling has a Virtual Trade board that allows telecommuters to bid on open shifts, request shift trades, and view approvals without having to talk to a manager. Employees and supervisors don’t have to exchange endless texts and emails to work out schedule changes. All stakeholders can see the schedule and updates at any time, night or day.

Managing Overtime

“Out of sight, out of mind” is expensive when it comes to needless overtime and can also result in employee burnout, higher attrition, and reduced productivity—all of which are pricey in their own right. Baron Time overtime alerts allow businesses with a virtual office to meet their scheduling, workflow, and cost of labor objectives with smart automation that allows supervisors to concentrate on other things besides managing overtime.

Compatibility Problems Solved

Employees who work from home don’t always use the same hardware and software that is used at the corporate office. Because Baron Workforce Management Suite is cloud-based, it functions seamlessly on desktops, laptops, iOS and Android devices. It also eliminates the need for expensive software upgrades.

The baronHCM Guide to WFM Implementation

WFM implementation Islandia

Today’s post is for business owners who have recently decided to adopt a Workforce Management system but have not yet implemented it. By following a few guidelines, you can have a smooth system implementation and begin to enjoy the benefits right away.

Here is the baronHCM guide to Workforce Management implementation.

Make a Plan

We can help you develop a realistic timetable for the transition and decide which processes to transition first. Take advantage of our experience in helping businesses like yours transition quickly and effortlessly.

Transition in Stages

If your company has several departments, you may want to tackle it in stages. Once one department has successfully transitioned to all the new functions, you will have solved a few unexpected snags. You can use the knowledge gained to prevent the same snags when the next department transitions.

Communicate the Benefits

It’s natural for associates to worry that a new system could impact their pay or add a layer of complication to their busy day. If managers can prepare employees so they know how the new systems will benefit them, they will be more likely to comply willingly. Emphasize the transparency and convenience of self-service time cards and having 24/7 access to accrual information. Demonstrate how the virtual trade board can make it easy to pick up extra shifts or swap shifts when needed.

Train Employees Thoroughly

Baron Workforce Management Suite is so easy to use, we have never had a client whose employees couldn’t catch on quickly. Even if your labor force is tech-savvy, however, make sure you train thoroughly, measure the effectiveness, and then remind them to use the system continually until everyone is on board. You can’t take advantage of the many features of Baron Workforce Management Suite unless they are being used consistently and correctly.

Be Prepared for Possible Resistance

If you have offsite associates who will be GPS tracked for the first time, be prepared for some blowback. Employees who are used to plenty of independence may resist the increased oversight. Remember, as their employer you have every right to verify that your employees are working where they are supposed to be working. Explain that accountability is a two-way street; though they might feel micro-managed, tracking time to the minute benefits them when they work fifteen minutes past their usually shift end time or clock in a few minutes early. (If that is not allowed at your company, make sure you use the easy schedule enforcement tool in Baron Workforce Management Suite.)

If you are adopting a biometric time clock and an employee is especially resistant, be aware that this might be an indication that he or she is guilty of time theft. Compare the hours worked before and after using the new clock for insight. If you discover a compelling drop in hours—congratulations—you have finally stopped paying for time not actually worked!

Answer Questions

Make sure you are available to answer questions about the new system. If your team members see that you are dedicated to alleviating concerns, they will be more likely to support you. However, don’t go so far as to make the new practices optional. Some businesses have failed to implement a new system because they got so much resistance from their workforce they eventually gave up. Lowering labor costs, reducing admin hassles, and improving productivity will benefit everyone in your organization. Don’t let staff member resistance deter you.

Designate an Implementation Manager

Ideally, all of your team managers will soon be committed to the new system and become fully fluent in all of the features. However, by assigning a competent and dedicated person to own the project company-wide, you can centralize the implementation-specific communication and training and count on your point person to make sure each department sticks with it until all departments and systems are transitioned.

We are dedicated to your success. Let the Workforce Management experts at baronHCM help you start enjoying the myriad benefits Baron Workforce Management Suite provides.

Intro to Workforce Management With baronHCM

intro to workforce management New York

Business owners: have you noticed that many organizations are implementing some sort of Workforce Management software? Perhaps organizations that you work closely with, companies that you have partnered with, or even competitors’ organizations. If you do not yet use a Workforce Management system and have been too busy to look into them, you may be wondering why “Workforce Management” has become a buzzword.

At baronHCM, we are uniquely qualified to explain because we offer the most advanced Workforce Management software on the market. Workforce Management systems are meant to simplify how your business manages staff members. But beware, some Workforce Management systems are confusing and difficult to use, which defeats the whole purpose. With our Baron Workforce Management Suite we’ve created the most powerful yet simple-to-use tools to help you transform your processes.

Benefit #1: Streamlined Administration
Administrative tasks like scheduling, clocking in and out, and tracking essential information are easier than ever with our Workforce Management software. The time saved frees up your administrative staff to accomplish more with fewer people.

Benefit #2: Reduced Labor Costs
Another vital advantage that Baron Workforce Management Suite gives to organizations is the ability to cut labor costs. When you’re able to smoothly track what your employees are doing and when and where they are doing it, you can maximize productivity, limit overtime, and develop effective scheduling strategies.

Benefit #3: Improved Accuracy
Baron Workforce Management Suite also helps reduce time card errors. For example, our Baron Workforce Management Clock has PunchLogic, which doesn’t allow employees to unwittingly clock into the wrong activity. Fewer errors translates to less time sorting them out after the fact.

Benefit #4: Audit Protection
The last benefit we’ll talk about today is the fact that our Workforce Management software assists you in staying compliant with ACA, DOL, state, and local regulations. Most regulations require you to collect, review, and submit information that pertains to your staff members and their hours worked. Regulators want this information to be accurate and submitted in a timely fashion. With Baron Workforce Management Suite, our automated tools collect the information for you and generate reports at the click of a mouse. Our platform is fully integrated, so your data keeps its accuracy from one tool to another. Hassle-free compliance gives you peace of mind so you can concentrate on building your business.

Not PBJ Compliant Yet? Relax. We’ve Got Your Back.

PBJ reporting system New York

Attention owners and operators of long-term healthcare facilities. Operating a healthcare business is challenging enough without stressing about new and ever-changing government standards. In today’s post we will review an ACA quality-of-care regulation called Payroll Based Journal (PBJ).

Payroll Based Journal became effective for the quarter beginning July 1, 2016 with the first submission to the PBJ system due no later than 45-days after the quarter ended November 14, 2016.

What is Payroll Based Journal?
Payroll Based Journal is mandated staffing and census data from long-term health facilities that the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) began collecting. CMS created a free system for long-term healthcare facilities to send the reports to. The system is called the Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (QIES). CMS requires the following information in the reports:

  • A unique employee ID for each direct staff care provider (no SSN’s allowed).
  • A complete, accurate record for each facility that identifies their direct care staff (includes agency, contractors, and certified medical personnel as defined by CMS).
  • Residence census specifics (Medicare, Medicaid, other).
  • Direct care staff turnover and tenure (start and term dates).
  • Total hours of care provided by each category of staff per resident per day including start and end date and the hours worked per individual.

Whew! That’s a lot of specifics! But don’t panic. baronHCM has a solution for you to meet the PBJ reporting mandate. Our Baron Workforce Management Suite will help you track and manage your employees so that the process is smooth and effortless. With our automated, innovative tools you’ll be able to avoid PBJ penalties and reporting delays.

Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM includes TimeWorksPlus and TimeSimplicity – the dynamic PBJ duo that automates data collection, PBJ report creation, and data submission.

TimeWorksPlus is an automated timekeeping system that not only tracks employee hours to the minute but also job codes. It has a built-in audit trail that allows you to meet the demands of an audit.

TimeSimplicity is a powerful scheduling system that tracks shift coverage and proactively identifies gaps in necessary staffing as mandated for providing quality of care. Communication is crucial, and with TimeSimplicity’s text and email collaboration and its Trade Board features, it empowers employees and supervisors with clear lines of communication to resolve staffing issues within a few minutes.

The TimeWorksPlus mobile app is called TimeWorks Mobile. It enables staff members to punch in or out via their mobile device, which means your tracking of hours continues without a hitch when employees are working off-site.

Which FLSA Law Did You Break Today?

FLSA compliance tools Islandia

Many business owners who have been penalized for labor law violations never realized they were noncompliant. But we all know that ignorance is no excuse. Here are common FLSA violations to avoid:

1. Misclassifying Employees

Any employer who fails to follow DOL rules regarding classification is risking significant penalties. Employee classification affects a host of things including benefits eligibility, minimum wage standards, overtime pay eligibility, and workers’ comp eligibility. Business owners who misclassify are in jeopardy of state and federal penalties and should consult the comprehensive DOL classification rules.

2. Docking Pay From An Exempt Employee

An employee who is exempt from the overtime provision has other rights under the FLSA. One of these is being paid for an entire day even when working less. Business owners who dock pay when a non-exempt employee leaves during the day are committing a punishable violation. Note that an employer can generally take other disciplinary actions.

3. Miscalculating Overtime Pay

Most workers should be paid time-and-a-half for time worked over 40 hours in a week, but business owners continue to violate this law, even though it has been around for decades.

4. Minimum Wage Violations

Two Walt Disney companies were required to pay 3.8 million to workers for wage hour violations that included allowing hourly rates to fall below minimum wage due to paycheck deductions for uniforms.

5. Off-The-Clock Non-Paid Work

Employers must pay their workers for all work performed. This means they cannot ask staff members to perform work off the clock. This was another offense in the Disney case mentioned previously.

At baronHCM we understand how time-consuming it can be to ensure compliance with FLSA provisions, not to mention other laws that affect the workplace such as ACA and PBJ. Employers are also subject to local and state laws regulating minimum wage, overtime, family leave, predictive scheduling, and extra hours for part-time employees.

Employers need a powerful, yet easy-to-use Workforce Management system that includes smartly-designed compliance features. Baron Workforce Management Suite has dedicated compliance tools that help you comply with DOL regulations without having to hire more HR staff. Avoid penalties, store records for verification, and reduce your risk of a wage dispute.

Why is HR The Last Department to Get Tech Tools?

HR automation tools Islandia

For the past several years, we have observed that many companies have been successfully implementing technology in CRM, accounting, merchant transactions, manufacturing, online marketing, and inventory management. As IT teams swell, it seems as if HR is often the last department to get on the automation train. 

If your company is still using manual processes to track employee time and attendance and create and manage employee schedules, you’re missing out on the multiple benefits Workforce Management solutions like Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM can provide to your HR department.

Here are 3 compelling reasons to automate HR:

1. Lower Labor Costs

Employees unwittingly forget to punch out for unpaid breaks and meals or can’t remember their hours when filling out a time card after the fact. Employees intentionally pad time cards and punch in for co-workers who are tardy or absent. Multiple studies reveal that time theft is widespread. You may not believe it happens at your organization, but statistics suggest otherwise.

Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM tracks time to the minute and lets you create employee schedules in minutes. This also allows you to manage overtime strategically and gather actionable data about employee hours and schedules.

2. Reduce Administrative Burden

Baron Time automates time card management and shifts the task to the employees. Let the system and staff members do the work! Employees submit time cards and drop and pick up shifts from the Virtual Trade Board. When your HR staff can process payroll in minutes, they are free to work on company initiatives that have a bigger payoff. Ensure your labor force is paid accurately and on time while eliminating all the tedious manual work.

3. Simplify Labor Law Compliance

Baron Time and Baron Scheduling (the employee scheduling system in Baron Workforce Management Suite) will enable you to easily and effectively comply with FLSA, ACA, and PBJ standards. Track hours worked, PTO, overtime, and breaks. Avoid fines, store records for verification, and reduce your risk of a time card dispute.

Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM can transform your employee timekeeping and scheduling. And it probably costs a lot less than you think. Let us show you how you can quickly implement affordable Baron Workforce Management Suite to help you administer timekeeping, limit the cost of labor, and stay compliant.

baronHCM: ACA Compliance Made Easy

ACA compliance system

Introduction to ACA Compliance For New Business Owners

Hello! Today’s post is for new small business owners who are unfamiliar with the Affordable Care Act and how it impacts their business.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) (informally “Obamacare”), is a United States Federal Statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23rd, 2010. The act was developed to raise healthcare outcomes, reduce costs, and improve methods of distribution and accessibility.

Does it affect my company?

Any business with over 50 full time or full time equivalent employees is directly impacted because it is required to meet the ACA requirements. As part of this legislation, the healthcare benefits offered must also meet a specific level of quality.

It may sound overwhelming to someone who has never dealt with business regulation, but don’t fret over it.

Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM offers businesses like yours a quick, automated answer for ACA compliance.

Step one is to track your staff members’ hours so you know who is full-time and who isn’t. Baron Time automatically tracks hours worked to determine each employee’s status, whether FT or FTE (full-time equivalent). It also produces an electronic “paper” trail for accurate and untampered reporting purposes and provides a Work Week and Work Month report that contains the total of hours worked for that week, and/or pay period.

What if I have employees whose hours vary and I want to keep them under the full-time limit?

The qualifying number of hours that determine an employee’s status of full-time or full-time equivalent for ACA are 30 hours per week or 130 hours per month. Baron Scheduling enables you to define an hour limit per employee that gives you an immediate notification when you attempt to add a shift to an employee who is at the threshold of 29-hours.

What else do I need to worry about?

Baron Time provides an extensive ACA checklist to assist you in knowing what other things you need to do to safeguard against thousands of dollars in non-compliance penalties.

You can visit http://baronhcm.com/ for more details on what baronHCM can do to help you comply with ACA and DOL regulations.

Baron Workforce Management Suite Simplifies Retail

retail time and attendance system Islandia

No two retail businesses are exactly the same. Different products, different marketing techniques, and different target markets are just a few of the differences you’ll find in retail. But there is one common component in the retail industry and that is that each business has associates to manage.

That’s why we at baronHCM want to expedite the way retail owners track and manage their associates. We’ve simplified the work for huge retailers all the way down to the smaller franchise stores. Regardless of the size of your business, we have a solution for you!

Our goal was to create an advanced platform that was simple, effective, and would work for everyone. We wanted to help organizations save money, reduce timekeeping errors, and avoid non-compliance.

We came up with Baron Workforce Management Suite; using industry-leading web-based tools, it met all of our goals. The result is an outstanding experience for retail owners.

Baron Workforce Management Suite makes it effortless to track employee time and attendance. It also allows you to rapidly integrate that information with your payroll software and other HR systems. With Baron Time, you can handle things such as time card approvals, time off requests, and custom reports.

We have also significantly upgraded how your staff members can track things that are important to them. With Baron Time Employee Self-Service (ESS), employees can view their schedules, check their accrual balances and submit time-off requests to management. Employee empowerment boosts morale and productivity.

Customers are always flowing in and out of retail stores, and it’s crucial to make sure you have enough associates at the store to assist them. The Baron Scheduling Schedule Preferences feature eliminates confusion by identifying when an employee is available to work.

The system will inform the scheduler of a conflict if they attempt to add a shift to an unavailable staff member. That way you can know that your store will always have the required personnel.

Why You Need Automated WFM for Salaried Employees

salaried employee WFM system Islandia

 

Some employers with only salaried personnel often believe automated Workforce Management is only necessary for organizations with hourly employees. The object of this post is to explain why this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Why Companies With Salaried Employees Need Workforce Management Systems

1. Compliance

The alphabet soup of the various labor laws—FLSA, ACA, PBJ, FMLA—apply equally to all employees, regardless of the way they are paid. Accurately tracking hours, schedules, PTO, overtime, separation policies, and employee classifications is critical for maintaining compliance and having the needed paper trail to protect you in case of a labor dispute or audit.

2. Overtime Management

Non-exempt salaried employees are subject to overtime pay protections. Mismanaged overtime can be a real budget buster. It can also result in employee burnout, higher attrition, and diminished productivity—all of which are costly in their own right. The larger your organization, the more unplanned overtime costs you. Customizable overtime alerts in Baron Time take the hassle out of monitoring and managing overtime.

3. Analyze and Improve Resource Allocation

The job codes in Baron Time enable business owners to automatically track how much time each department or employee spends per account, project, product, or any other operational classification.

4. Reduced Admin Burden

How many hours a week does your HR team spend tracking accruals, submitting payroll, and responding to employee requests for information? The tools in Baron Workforce Management Suite ease the burden on your HR staff and empower your employees to access important data without needing to contact HR and wait for a reply.
