Learning is a lifelong journey. No matter what industry you work in, there is always more information to process and implement. In the field of Workforce Management, we are introduced to new information, strategies, challenges, and concepts almost every day. Keeping up with this evolving field can prove to be challenging. The best way to stay up to date with Workforce Management trends is to have a list of resources that provide the latest WFM news, information, and strategies. Here are the top five resources that every Kronos user should know:
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” - Dr. Seuss
Kronos Fans is the largest Kronos user group in the world, hosted by Improvizations, Inc. Dedicated to providing timely support and discussion on Kronos and ADP eTime, Kronos-Fans discusses both technical and functional subjects. The group fosters ongoing discussions about Workforce Central (including time and attendance, scheduling, absence management, HR, payroll, hiring, and labor analytics) as well as WIM, java and clock issues, or other setup and configuration questions.
When you join Kronos-Fans, you become part of a virtual community dedicated to helping answer any questions or problems encountered by Kronos users. Kronos-Fans is a strictly educational environment, monitoring and removing any solicitation, recruiting or job posting from the discussion.

If you are looking for relevant information on WFM trends and strategies, Workforce.com is an extremely beneficial site. Workforce is a multimedia publication that covers the intersection of people management and business strategy. The unique content allows HR professionals to approach their jobs from a more strategic, big-picture, business-results perspective. Workforce features detailed newsletters, videos, and articles, as well as opportunities for networking and job searching.
Specific questions about your Kronos applications can be directed to the Kronos Research library. Found at Kronos.com, the resource library features literature on virtually any Kronos application. Search by keyword or topic to download detailed reports, whitepapers, or case studies with valuable insight on how to get the most out of your application.
