Your Kronos Test Script, What's Really at Steak?

Jeffry Charnow — Mar 2012

A coworker and I decided to reward ourselves after a hard day’s work. You know – look for an oasis away from work where you can forget about everything for at least a little while.
We were in a steak house looking over a really great menu when we came across the 72 oz Steak Challenge. You have probably heard about these contests before, eat the whole thing and it's free. This was one of the most well defined contests I have ever seen. Seriously, just look at these rules:

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. The prior articles covered why an organization might use some of the new Workforce Central (WFC) features and why they should consider upgrading. Simply speaking, what’s in it for us? 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.

Now We Have Kronos Timekeeper, It's Payroll Time! Part I

Dwain Lambrigger — Jan 2012

You are a payroll manager who has recently learned that the parent company is requiring you to use Kronos Workforce Timekeeper. They have been on the system for years, however, they are now requiring all of the satellite businesses to implement it as well. I can’t get into the detail, but I will review the basic steps required.
