Now Hiring! - Workforce Central Job Aids and Training Material

Raymond Ney — Jul 2011

On a recent venture when working with a Kronos customer we identified some questions on ownership, responsibilities, and some questions on delegation.

(Kronos Supplemental Pay; A Sea Story ) I raised the issue that although many companies have no problem coming up with new and complicated differential/supplemental pay schemes, none of us seem to be able to associate the overhead cost of maintaining these schemes year after year. In putting this question out to my loyal readership, both of you commented with some insight about the issue.
