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.

PBJ File Rejected? Let’s Fix It.

PBJ reporting system Islandia

Today’s post is for PBJ (Payroll Based Journal) managers at long-term care facilities who have had a PBJ file rejected by the CMS. Whether you entered the data manually or used a PBJ reporting platform, you are probably eager to identify and correct the problem to regain compliance, reduce your audit liability, and confirm the standard of care provided at your facility.

Manual PBJ Increases the Risk of File Rejection

Manual PBJ data entry is time-consuming and susceptible to human error. Investing in an automated system will save you time and money and protect you from violations. Baron Workforce Management Suite from baronHCM takes the inconvenience out of PBJ compliance with a system that is quick, easy and cost-effective. The PBJ tools in Baron Workforce Management Suite aren’t an afterthought; they were designed to meet the challenges of real-world SNF staffing scenarios right from the beginning.

The Most Advanced PBJ Solution

If you used an automated system with PBJ tools but your file was still declined, perhaps the PBJ tools are substandard or too complicated to use. Baron Workforce Management Suite PBJ tools are user-friendly and can be set up in minutes.

Regardless of the reason your file was rejected, Baron Workforce Management Suite has the solution. Here is a list of the most frequent reasons PBJ reports are not accepted.

  • Duplicate Employee ID Numbers: The ID is a unique identifier and cannot be assigned to another member of current or former staff. This ID cannot include any PII (Personally Identifiable Information) such as a Social Security number.
  • Incorrect Calculation of Time Worked: Employee time worked is calculated in fractions rounded to the nearest 10th.
  • Reporting Hours by Shift vs Date: Hours reported are assigned to a calendar day which ends at midnight. For example, if a team member logs a shift that starts at 9:00 PM on 10/7/2017 and ends at 5:00 AM on 10/8/2017, 3 hours would be entered for 10/7/2017 and 5 hours for 10/8/2017.
  • Not Reporting Hours for Contract or Agency Staff: Hours for each staff member furnishing patient care (including agency and contract employees) must be reported.
  • Wrong File Type: The CMS only accepts XML files.
  • Job Code Errors: When an employee’s primary role changes during a shift, the report must include a job code for each specific primary duty.
  • Reporting Hours for Meals: Paid or unpaid meals should not be included in the hours reported.
  • Data Not Auditable or Verifiable: The report submitted cannot be a stand-alone record. It must be corroborated by other records such as time cards, payroll records, invoices, or employee contracts.

No More Compliance Headaches

By implementing Baron Workforce Management Suite, you can eliminate each of these PBJ errors going forward. Call 631-266-2500 today to schedule a demo. We can help you get all of your information entered quickly and show you how easy it is to use Baron Workforce Management Suite to handle your PBJ reporting timely and accurately.

Note: The requirement to submit hire and termination dates was originally mandatory but in 2017 the inclusion became optional.

3 Easy Ways to Reduce Labor Costs With Automated Workforce Management

affordable WFM system Islandia

Even though Baron Workforce Management Suite is very cost-effective, some employers still aren’t convinced that it’s worth it and hang onto old school manual timekeeping systems. Today’s post is addressed to employers who are using manual Workforce Management methods because they don’t believe that investing in an automated system will yield a worthwhile ROI.

Here are 3 critical ways Baron Workforce Management Suite helps businesses control labor costs:

Employee Time Theft

If you haven’t caught any of your staff members fudging on their time cards—it’s only a matter of time (pun definitely intended). In a survey of over 500 retail and service industry personnel, over 30 percent admitted to calculated time theft.1 The two types they recognized specifically are buddy punching and recording incorrect start and end times.

Buddy punching, logging erroneous start times, and early punch-ins and late punch-outs result in an average of 4.5 fraudulent hours per week, per staff member. For one staff member earning a wage of $10 per hour, that can be a loss of $45 per week.

Reduce Administrative Costs

With pen and paper time cards, your managers spends tedious hours troubleshooting timesheet inaccuracies and then manually slinging the data into the payroll system. When your HR staff can complete payroll in minutes, they are free to work on company initiatives that have a bigger payoff. Overtime policing can also be time consuming, which leads us to number 3:

Control Costly Overtime

Companies that mismanage overtime for hourly team members can really take a financial hit. Manual timekeeping systems don’t have built-in warnings to inform supervisors when employees are approaching or have exceeded their authorized hours. The larger your business, the more unplanned overtime costs you. Baron Workforce Management Suite customizable overtime notifications are one of the most popular features in our system.

Bottom line?

Baron Workforce Management Suite will rapidly pay for itself and continue to save on labor costs every single payroll!

Two Ways You Are Getting Ripped Off Every Time You Run Payroll

stop employee time theft Islandia

As employers, we like to think we can trust our team members. Without trust, not much can get done, but there are a couple of areas that provide an easy opportunity for your employees to take advantage if you aren’t watching carefully, and it can cost you thousands.

There is an Epidemic of Employee Time Theft
In a survey of over 500 retail and service industry workers, over 30 percent admitted to deliberate time theft.1 The two types they mentioned specifically are buddy punching and recording incorrect start and end times.

Buddy punching, recording erroneous start times, and early punch-ins and late punch-outs result in an average of 4.5 hours per week, per staff member. For one worker earning a wage of $10 per hour, that can be a loss of $45 per week. Not a big deal? Consider this…

Let’s presume you have 15 employees, each working at $10 per hour, and each of them are taking an average of 4.5 additional hours per week. At this rate, you will be spending $675 per week in illegitimate time. In a year, you will spend $35,100 for labor you never received; you just bought your employees a very nice new car for no good reason.

If you have more than 15 staff members, or you are paying more than $10 an hour, the story only gets worse.

How Can You Protect Yourself From Employee Time Theft?

Easy! Better time clock management. baronHCM provides Baron Workforce Management Clock, which is specifically designed to minimize early punch-ins, late punch-outs, and it makes buddy punching almost impossible. The low cost for this solution will surprise you, and the savings it will deliver are far and above the nominal cost. Give us a call at 631-266-2500 to find out more.

Need To Convince Your Boss to Invest in a WFM System?

automated WFM system

Are you trying to persuade your boss to implement an advanced Workforce Management system such as Baron Workforce Management Suite? Today’s post is for HR managers who want to upgrade from manual processes to an automated system but don’t have the authority to make the decision. Many business owners who have not implemented a Workforce Management system mistakenly think they can’t afford it or don’t believe they need it.

Let’s look at 6 convincing arguments for automated Workforce Managment.

1. Team Scheduling Ease

Effective employee scheduling is at the heart of Human Capital Optimization. Scheduling affects productivity, cost of labor, labor force morale and turnover, resource allocation, admin efficiency, and DOL compliance.

Baron Scheduling, the employee scheduling tool in Baron Workforce Management Suite, does more than just allow supervisors to create schedules in minutes; it allows them to empower their workforce to engage with scheduling and eagerly take over many tasks previously performed by managers. Baron Scheduling helps get rid of over-staffing, decreases overtime with system warnings, promptly identifies gaps in coverage before it’s too late, and slings email and SMS warnings.

“Scheduling … is having a huge effect on the bottom line. Increasing scheduling effectiveness offers a competitive edge that can make HR a budget hero.”1 Workforce management consultant Lisa Disselkamp

2. Eliminate Employee Time Theft

Manual timekeeping systems can be exploited in a number of ways from hours padding to buddy punching. Many employers who switch to an automated system are surprised by the decline in employee hours the very first pay period. Even if you notice just a small reduction, this advantage will compound, promptly paying for the cost of adopting an automated system like Baron Time, the employee time and attendance tool in Baron Workforce Management Suite.

3. Analyze and Improve Resource Allocation

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

4. Decrease Administrative Expenses

With paper timesheets, supervisors and admin staff spend tedious hours troubleshooting timesheet inaccuracies and missing information, and then manually entering the data into the payroll processing service. When HR staff can process payroll in minutes, they are free to work on projects with a greater ROI.

5. Increased Employee Morale

Baron Scheduling makes it easier to accommodate employee’s scheduling preferences. Improving staff members’ work/life balance increases loyalty, reduces burnout, spurs engagement, and saves on labor costs by resulting in increased employee retention.

6. Compliance Peace of Mind

Labor audit liability should concern every employer in the country. Take, for example, the Affordable Care Act. ACA standards can be complicated to comply with because you have to know all of your staff members’ schedules and how many hours they’re going to work each week. With Baron Time, this type of information is tracked automatically and gives managers complete control and 24/7 oversight. They can monitor, track, and make required changes instantly.

A Win-Win: Improve Compliance Without Adding More Work

Baron Workforce Management Suite paired with one of our biometric time clocks can significantly lessen your risk of being fined for noncompliance while simultaneously decreasing the time needed to track employee time and attendance.

Baron Workforce Management Suite quickly pays for itself and the ROI compounds each pay cycle. Of course, if you have been trying to talk your boss into acquiring one, you already knew that. Call 631-266-2500 today to schedule a demo of Baron Workforce Management Suite (for both of you).

Data Mine Your HR Records: A Scientific Approach to Increase Productivity

data mine HR records Islandia

Today’s post is for business owners who have little experience with data analysis, use manual timekeeping and scheduling processes, and want to use a scientific approach to better manage their workforce.

Workforce Management 101

Capturing Workforce Management (WFM) data is the first step to creating a Human Capital Optimization strategy. In order to gather and manage the data, you need effective tools. Affordable Baron Workforce Management Suite provides such tools and is ideal for the WFM beginner. Baron Workforce Management Suite is as easy to use as your favorite phone app and automates time-consuming HR processes while gathering the data that is essential for improving productivity and, by extension, profitability.

You Can’t Improve What You Don’t Understand

Let’s look at a few ways Baron Workforce Management Suite captures strategic data. Baron Time is the cloud-based employee timekeeping system in the suite. It can be used in combination with Baron Workforce Management Clock to capture punch-ins, or team members can simply punch in/out in the employee dashboard from any internet-enabled device. Baron Scheduling paired with Baron Time has key benefits for employee timekeeping, schedule creation, employee shift trading, and general inter-departmental communication. But for the purposes of this article, let’s look at the types of data Baron Workforce Management Suite automatically captures.

Ease and Accuracy

Baron Time tracks time to the minute. Why is this important? By simply automating punch in/out, you can find out exactly who habitually punches in early or punches out late. Do you know exactly how much overtime your associates log? With old school manual timekeeping systems, you have to look through all the time cards, find the ones with overtime listed, and add it up. Baron Time tracks overtime automatically and you can view it by simply looking in your manager portal.

  • Scheduling: Are the people with the necessary skills and/or certifications scheduled at the right time? How are production levels influenced by scheduling changes? Does workforce morale fluctuate from shift to shift?
  • Absences, tardies, breaks, and time theft: Who punches in early? Who forgets to punch out during breaks? Who consistently punches out late every day, adding many unauthorized minutes a week to their time card?
  • Coverage gaps: What shifts are understaffed? How does this impact production, customer service, and workflow? Are your managers wasting time trying to find workers to cover shifts at the last minute?
  • Overstaffing: What shifts are costing you more in labor than is required? Are team members wasting time due to overstaffing?
  • Overtime: How much are you spending in overtime every month? Could this be minimized with smarter scheduling or automatic messages?
  • Mobile staff: Are your offsite and mobile staff members where they should be?
  • Schedule flexibility: Can your staff members easily trade shifts? Would you have improved worker retention if schedule preferences were better accommodated?
  • Admin time: How many hours a week do your managers spend researching and correcting time card errors, tracking accruals, doing compliance reporting, submitting payroll, responding to employee requests for HR information, and dealing with other labor force problems?

To recap the process:

1. Capture data about human resource management.
2. Analyze the data to see opportunities for improvement.
3. Make changes.
4. Identify whether the revisions were effective and adjust where necessary.
5. Continually monitor the results, especially when there have been significant changes in workflow, staff, labor law standards, or business objectives.

Of course, each one of these steps can be broken down considerably. For example, here are some sub-steps to number 3 above:

  • Eliminate redundancy through automation
  • Reduce time devoted to non-billable processes
  • Improve documentation management
  • Let employees take over time card management, accrual monitoring, and shift trading

Case Study: Cabinet Shop

cabinet shop employee timekeeping system

Running a small manufacturing business in the United States is not for the faint of heart. We have seen so many proud “Made in America” operations go belly up due to foreign competition and the recession that those unfamiliar with the industry might be surprised to learn that there are still some domestic manufacturers that have not only survived but are prospering.

Today’s case study looks at a custom cabinet shop geared to the high-end residential market. During the 2007-2009 recession, the owner started incorporating lean manufacturing practices, which he credits for helping his organization weather the economic downturn.

Though lean manufacturing processes were originally designed for large assembly-line manufacturing operations, many of the basic principles can be applied to organizations of any size or industry.

From 2008-2013, the owner concentrated on increasing the efficiency of production processes and materials management. Around 2013, he realized that lean manufacturing principles could increase the efficiency and profitability of his workforce. He knew that paper timesheets, an old school time clock, and manual scheduling systems were cumbersome and inefficient.

His main goals were:

  • Eliminate redundancy through automation
  • Decrease time devoted to non-billable processes
  • Leverage data to continually increase profitability
  • Improve document management

Solution — Baron Workforce Management Suite

Baron Workforce Management Suite consists of Baron Time and Baron Workforce Management Clock for cabinet shop employee timekeeping, Baron Scheduling for scheduling, and Baron Mobile for mobile functionality. Let’s review how Baron Workforce Management Suite capably fulfilled each of his original objectives.

Eliminate Redundancy

Before Baron Workforce Management Suite, each worker would fill out a time card, then a supervisor would approve it, then the hours were manually entered into the payroll system by one of the HR staff. Three different people touched each time card each payroll period! Baron Workforce Management Clock permits employees to clock in at the shop or on their smartphone when picking up materials, out on a bid, or at a job site. Time card data is captured automatically and can then be accessed in a variety of different formats. Managers can approve them at a glance in the cloud-based system or set the system to auto approve. The data is then imported directly into payroll.

Reduce Time Devoted to Non-billable Processes

Prior to implementation, Workforce Management took most of the HR team’s time and a significant amount of time for supervisors and employees as well. Now that employees manage their own electronic timesheets and hours are imported directly into the payroll system, the HR team has time to help with sales and billing. And the owner has determined that even if the organization triples in size, he won’t need to hire more HR staff.

Before Baron Workforce Management Suite, the supervisors had been using Excel spreadsheets to design employee schedules. Baron Scheduling has customizable templates and drag-and-drop functions that permit managers to create team schedules in minutes.

Leverage Data to Boost Profitability

Baron Scheduling empowers the owner and management team to analyze and adjust worker schedules to maximize employee efficiency. Overtime alerts and schedule enforcement have lowered labor costs and increased the bottom line.

Improve Document Management

Manually capturing, storing, and accessing HR data was ridiculously inefficient before the implementation of Baron Workforce Management Suite. Employee time and attendance, schedules, time cards, PTO tracking, payroll processing, and compliance reporting ate more than twenty hours a week for the two-person HR team. Now, there are no more error-prone paper time cards to enter into the payroll platform, no tedious accruals tracking, and audit-ready records protect against any DOL action.

5 Ways WFM Improves Customer Service

improve customer service at my company Islandia

A customer service rep can’t solve customer problems if she is preoccupied with her own HR concern at work. There are many direct and indirect benefits of optimizing your timekeeping, scheduling, and payroll processes. Today’s message outlines 5 ways implementing Baron Workforce Management Suite will improve the customer service at your company.

Eliminate Coverage Gaps

Customer service 101: Have enough associates to give customers timely service. Schedule adherence ensures adequate shift staffing and the flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances on the fly.

Scheduling Stability Let’s Employees Focus on Customers

Complex schedules made effortless! Flexible shift definitions and schedule templates with up to five organization levels. Multi-manager, multi-department, multi-location capability. Everything you need for streamlined management of a few to hundreds of staff members in any industry. With customizable job coding, you know that you have employees with the required skills serving your customers.

Happy Employees Provide Better Service

Accommodating schedule preferences minimizes employee turnover, thereby improving the overall competence level of the department. Time card self management enables associates to concentrate on their work instead of trying to get schedule, shift change approval, time card, and accrual information from HR.

Absence and Overtime Management

Accurately capture and utilize attendance history to pinpoint trends, set alerts for violations, automate time-off requests, and evaluate the overall influence of unscheduled absences. Then adjust schedules and notifications in minutes to accommodate the findings. Strategic absence management makes sure that customer service doesn’t break down due to uncontrolled employee absences or unscheduled breaks.

Manager Super-Vision Of Mobile Staff

Monitor employee status in real time, from anywhere. Review remote staff levels, monitor current clock-in/out and breaks. Filter by department, manager, or location. Review, edit, and approve schedule and time cards on the go. Managers who save countless admin hours a week with Baron Workforce Management Suite have more time to train associates to give better service.

Are you the owner of a restaurant, cafe, or diner? Then today’s post is for you! As you know, there is so much more to running a restaurant than coming up with delicious food – although that’s key! Once you start attracting more people, you’ll have to work hard to keep your restaurant staffed to cater to all the customers.

We at baronHCM know how essential it is for owners like you to efficiently manage your staff members. So that’s what we help you do!

Baron Scheduling teams with Baron Time to add even more helpful pieces customized to streamline your administrative processes.

This is crucial in making sure all of your customers are getting top notch service.

We sell the same system used by large international chains including Subway, Jimmy Johns, and KFC, but it can be customized for the smallest boutique coffee shop. No matter your size, we can help you keep cooking!
