Jul 29, 2016 11:30:00 AM

 

Kronos Workforce Central Version 8.0 is the ultimate Workforce Management tool, allowing organizations to create and execute strategies that maintain and nurture a healthy and engaged workforce.

User Adoption Assessments: Are they really necessary?

“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”

- Sir Winston Churchill-

Strategic planning without analysis is ineffective. The design or evolution of a strategy should be based on analysis of previous results.

Are your Kronos™ users just "standing there?" 


The world of technology is driven by innovation and continual change. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of evolving technology we use everyday. The average adult spends 45% of the 15 hours and 45 min he/she is awake using some form of technology. However, our frequent personal use of technology does not necessarily transform into user adoption of workplace technology.

What exactly is user adoption? We define it as…
