Revisiting a Quick Q&A on PTO in Workforce Timekeeper

Dwain Lambrigger — Mar 2012

There has been a lot of feedback that has come my way regarding the questions that were answered in the last blog entry on PTO. The purpose of this entry is to expand on those answers, clarify them and provide a little more substance to them. So let's look at these questions again...

Nurses, Use Your Kronos Timeclocks!

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2012

I’m sure you have heard this before. Your nurses are too busy to sit around the timeclock waiting to punch in and out. They need to get to work, and worrying about department transfers will simply slow them down, or worse yet, take them away from what they are supposed to do, care for their patients.

Kronos Training for the Rest of Us - Part III

Dwain Lambrigger — Feb 2012

This is a continuation of the blog series dealing with non technical learners training on Workforce Timekeeper. In this entry, I will discuss how we should build training materials for non-technical learners understanding Kronos Workforce Timekeeper. In previous entries in this series, I discussed some of the characteristics of non-technical learners, why they are not technical, and how to adapt to them. We should take into consideration these learners both when developing materials and in training events. So lets revisit some of the tactics we should take when building learning materials.

Kronos Payroll, a Boeing 737, and Big Picture training

Bryan deSilva — Jan 2012

Air Traffic Control to the Payroll Office … We have an employee questioning why the health care deduction changed on their last pay check … Beware of turbulence …

Being a technical guy (ok, ok, I.T.) partnering with Payroll departments for 25 years, I’ve come to the belief that payroll processing and commercial airline piloting are really very, very similar disciplines. You Payroll folks know the routine – get 99.9% of the checks correct this year, and all you’ll hear about is the .1% that were incorrect. Meet our airline counter-parts – 100% safe landings should be more of a “requirement” than a “goal”, right?

Dwain Lambrigger — Jan 2012

So what is it that makes non-technical people stay non-technical? I mean, after all, if non-technical people became technical, they wouldn't be non-technical, would they?

Kronos Training For the Rest of Us - Part 1 - Introduction

Dwain Lambrigger — Dec 2011

I was passing e-mail messages with a colleague this week when she asked a question that I thought would be valuable. "How do you go about training people that are technically savy?" (I am paraphrasing the question here). After thinking about it, I realized that this is a huge issue. One that a lot of HR Managers and Corporate Trainers deal with every day. Believe it or not, in the year 2011, there are people (even under the age of 40) who just don't use computers too much. Sure, they have a computer at home, to send an e mail or surf the web, but that's it. They have cell phones, not the 5G itele cool 8 mega pixel smart phone, just a phone. They make call and sent the occasional text, but that's it. These people are out there; in fact, it is safe to say they are a silent majority of workers not only in America, but around the world. Why are they silent if there are so many of them out there?

How can Kronos Training be Uniquely Valuable?

Dwain Lambrigger — Nov 2011

Is it safe to say that Steve Jobs has in some way affected your life? I know, I know. Not another Steve Jobs tribute. I am probably the last person to talk to this. I don't own an iPod, iPad, MacBook, or any other Apple product, be it tangerine, blueberry, strawberry or ..
