Kronos Workforce Attendance Module Beginning Balances

Jeff Millard — Feb 2012

One of the most important ‘Best Practices’ in the timekeeping arena is the separation of pay and attendance policies across the timecard. Generally this means that what you do as far as paying the employee is isolated from what you wish to set as tardy or no-show attendance thresholds. A simple example of this would be rounding an employee’s punch back to the hour if it is up to 7min after but still being able to track every time they are late as part of a stricter attendance policy – say 1 minute for tardiness. Legally speaking, companies have to pay people for the time they work (rounding is allowed if it averages out or favors the employee) but they need to counsel and be able to terminate employees in cases of chronic tardiness or absenteeism.

Nurses, Use Your Kronos Timeclocks!

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2012

I’m sure you have heard this before. Your nurses are too busy to sit around the timeclock waiting to punch in and out.

Raymond Ney — Feb 2012

For those following the Kronos New Feature Series, this will be the last article in the series – THE END! However, comment posting will still be available for the entire series. We talked about new features available to customers upgrading to the most current version of Kronos Workforce Timekeeper.

What is this talk about an “Upgrade Studio”? So let's wipe the dust off that old Kronos version and weigh if the change is worthwhile.

Recording Vacation Time in Kronos Timekeeper... In the Schedule?

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2012

So it’s the middle of the week and you receive a time off request from one of your employees. You know, that nice form that you can’t file away until you record it in the employee’s timecard. The time off request is not for another month. Do you wait it out, hoping the paper request doesn't get lost? How about making life easier for both you and your employee by recording that vacation time in the employee’s schedule?

What is the cost to upgrade Kronos Timekeeper?

Bryan deSilva — Feb 2012

How often I've heard that question I cannot say, but daily isn't too far off. I wonder if upgrades of all software has become a commodity in customers minds. People upgrade Windows with a new machine. Upgrade Office with a new machine. Upgrade security software daily and automatically. Upgrade furniture when the 42" flat screen comes free. I see a loose pattern.

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2012

Once a pay period has closed, the payroll process begins. Basically, the payroll process incorporates preparing the time collected in Kronos Workforce Timekeeper, reviewing and validating that data, then sending it over to your payroll system. Your payroll system then processes the data and does many things, the most important of which is to provide pay checks or direct deposits to employees.
