Plenty of companies are using workforce management software to help them become more efficient and productive. But how can the same software help improve the lives of the team, the most valuable part of the business?
We created Tanda with the whole team in mind, that means both employer and employee. Here are some of the benefits that employees gain when a company uses Tanda.
Mistake-Free Time Records and Paychecks
Companies that still manual methods for timekeeping and pay calculation can cause employees to second guess if they’re really getting paid the right amount every time the payslip arrives.
Switching to the Tanda employee time clock ensures your staff that their daily attendance is recorded accurately. Once recorded, their Tanda timesheets are automatically calculated with our award interpreter to account for modern awards of Fair Work Australia as well as other enterprise award agreements.
Better Work-Life Balance
People that enjoy a healthy work-life balance are those that are more fulfilled and productive. Tanda’s unavailability calendar feature lets employees tell their managers whenever they might not be open for shifts. This helps the company create the work schedule around each person’s unavailability. This means that employees enjoy coming to work every day since the business fully supports their personal lives and goals, instead of clashing with it.
Once in while, employees will need to take time off work for sick, vacation or other reasons. Tanda’s leave management feature lets them file a leave request using the time clock or a web browser. Management sees the request instantly on a dashboard that also shows important events, upcoming shifts, and remaining time off allowances. This takes out all the hassles involved with filing, processing, and approving time off requests.
Quicker Schedule and Payroll Processing
Employees need to know their schedule well ahead of time so that they can better plan their upcoming week. Tanda’s web-based rostering software cuts down the time companies spend making the weekly shift schedule. Once finished, Tanda sends the upcoming schedule to staff instantly via SMS, email or syncs directly with their calendar apps. This means that employees can find out their upcoming schedule ahead of time instead of them finding out only a day before and causing staffing issues.
The last thing employees want to happen is their paycheck getting delayed. According to a survey by the American Payroll Association, 37% of employees say that they financially struggle if their paycheck were delayed by at least a week. Tanda’s payroll integration feature seamlessly lets Tanda exchange data with your company’s payroll software. This cuts down processing time from hours to minutes, ensuring that employees get their paycheck on time, every time.
Making Work Easier
Employees aren’t able to work productively when they are overstretched with too many customers on a given shift. Tanda has a Predictive Workforce feature built-in with its scheduling software. It uses sales data from the business’ point-of-sale (POS) to give an accurate forecast on how many people are needed on any given shift. This means that your team can work without being over or understaffed at any period of the day, resulting in a smoother work day and a less chaotic workplace.
A workplace that truly trusts each other achieve great things together. According to a survey done by Interaction Associates, 86% of employees say that they are more productive if they trust their employers. A separate study by advocacy group Trust Across America found that trustworthy companies outperform companies in the S&P 500. And building that trust starts with transparency.
Employees must know that their company is working in the interests of all and they are open about the information that matters to them. With Tanda, employees have access to a portal that let them know their time and attendance records, time off allowances, and upcoming shift schedules.
Makes Work Fun
People are more motivated to perform at their best in a fun and fulfilling work environment. And Tanda is designed to make daily tasks that were previously seen as boring a completely enjoyable experience.
Instead of punching a timecard or jotting their name on a logbook, employees clock in by taking a selfie on the Tanda Time Clock. Starting the workday with a smile can change the employee’s whole perspective, which can lead to a better rapport with customers and fellow coworkers. And with Tanda doing most of the admin work, employees have more time to do the things that matter to them.
More than just having a fun work environment, employees want to know that they are doing makes a difference to the business. Tanda’s features like real-time wage reporting let employees take control of their work and better benchmark their success.
Why Workforce Software Matters for the Team
For the modern employee to work their best, they need to feel that the company has their back. They need to know that the company they’re working for pays them correctly, supports their life commitments, and effectively communicates with them at all times.
Companies can make all these happen for their team by taking down outdated processes. Using workforce management software such as Tanda, employees are more motivated to work, empowered by a platform that allows companies to drive trust, engagement and the ultimate employee experience.
