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

Dwain Lambrigger — Jun 2012

So a few years ago, I was shopping with my wife and she found what must have been the most beautiful sweater ever made. The color and fabric were perfect for me; it was cool!

So what goals should be set for Workforce Timekeeper training?  Shoot, how do we qualify a goal as good in the first place? Here are a few things to think about...
