Kronos Workforce Timekeeper: Adding Comments and Notes to a Punch

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2013

Providing better information to a Kronos Timecard 

Managing timecards for your employees requires a lot of review and understanding. For example, when an employee forgets to punch, who will be adding that punch? More often than not, you are assigned that responsibility. Now, can you just add the punch with the time you thought the employee came to or left work? No, you need to confirm this with your employee. Once they confirm the time they arrived or left, you need to add that punch. Here is the catch. Once you add that punch, Workforce Timekeeper no longer considers that punch “missing”. An easy way to ensure that this punch was missing originally is to assign a comment and note.

Kronos HR/PR: What Is Your Policy On...Policies?

Jeff Millard — Jan 2013

When you look at medical or life insurance policies there are generally two layers to them. There is the big concept, large-type section and, of course, the infamous minute detail, small-print section where the gnashing of arcane points is explicitly called out with mathematical precision. Written Pay & Leave Policies in most companies are the same with the big ideas called out in the HR/PR Policy docs and the hair-splitting details called out in…well? Where are all those pay precedence, rounding precision, cascade sequence, over limit, allow less than zero policies documented?  In most companies you actually have to look at the configuration code – Payrules, Workrules, Paycodes, Leave Cascades, etc to know what will really happen when various work and leave hours are run thru the mill. Is this best practice?

NGUI Training...Training what Kronos Says Doesn't Need Training

Dwain Lambrigger — Jun 2012

I know this because those were her exact words. Anyway, I tried it on and found it to be a little itchy. "Don't worry about it," my wife replied, "that will go away after a few washings, besides, it's on sale!" Well, guess what, it's been washed 10 to 15 times by now, and though it still looks cool, the thing continues to itch like crazy. I purchased something I really liked, but was less than happy with so I could save money.
