Using our knowledge and the expertise of our qualified partners, including Atlas Workforce, we can help you find the best practices and methods for your unique business needs.
Workforce Management solutions consist of automated systems, processes and models to ensure that labor costs are optimized with customer service goals.
Workforce management solutions can improve sales and customer service, reduce costs, increase morale and provide a fast ROI. The Atlas web-based system provides multiple location management, multi-level management hierarchy support, workload control, electronic scheduling, labor reporting, messaging and individual employee access.
Labor planning and forecasting can take hours to get right. Many companies rely on an “hours matix” to tell their stores how many hours to run each week. This method does not accuratly account for seasonal or weekly changes in the business and can lead to increased overtime and reduced customer service. It is also not uncommon for companies to control payroll by telling all their stores, “just cut five hours next week”, without the proper guidenance to store managers for them to make the right decisions. This leaves the managers guessing as to how many people the need during key times of the week.
Time & Attendance
ML Group provides a web-based time and attendance system through our partner Atlas Workforce Management.
Atlas Time and Attendance allows your business to control all aspects of employee time and attendance while reducing clerical errors and administrative labor for payroll management and processing.
Every employee will have access to the system. Corporate users and field management will have detailed reporting and tracking of schedules and labor. Store managers can manage their employees, approve time off requests, create schedules, and view actionable reporting such as potential overtime. Store employees can view and print their schedules, request time off and trade shifts with other employees (with manager approval).
