Company Recognized for Innovative Approach to Preventing Employee Fatigue
LIVONIA, Mich. (January 13, 2015) – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions, today announced that it has won a coveted gold award in the “Best Advance in Time and Labor Management” category of Brandon Hall Group’s Excellence in Technology Awards. The company received this honor for its highly innovative EmpCenter® Fatigue Management solution.
Employee fatigue in the workplace is a serious issue for many organizations across all industries. From reductions in staff despite growing workloads, to general anxiety over the economy, employees continue to show signs of wear. In many industries, fatigue is first and foremost a safety issue, yet there are broader reasons for concern. Overtired employees are less productive, more prone to mistakes and more likely to take unplanned absences—all factors that can increase an employer’s operating costs. While there are a number of fatigue risk factors outside of an organization’s control, the science and strategy behind scheduling—both planning ahead and reacting to absences and other deviations—are firmly in a company’s control.
EmpCenter Fatigue Management was designed to automatically monitor and enforce fitness for duty calculations across the organization, based on shift patterns, job types and specific tasks. As part of the EmpCenter suite, the solution combines broad-based workforce management functionality—time management, scheduling automation, leave compliance, etc.—with comprehensive support for specific industry practices and regulations regarding fatigue risk mitigation. As a result, organizations can reduce health-related issues and absences, increase productivity and employee morale, improve workplace safety and reduce exposure to litigation and risk.
“A growing number of industries, including transportation, healthcare and energy, have specific regulations and practices designed to reduce the risks of employee fatigue. This trend is easy to understand, because the research shows that fatigue can impact any business,” said Marc Moschetto, vice president of Global Marketing for WorkForce Software. “With EmpCenter Fatigue Management, we developed an application that helps organizations proactively manage employee work hours and breaks, fostering a safer and more productive work environment. We are very honored that Brandon Hall Group has recognized the strength of this solution and its impact on time and labor management.”
“HCM technology is a major enabler of business growth and our Excellence in Technology award winners epitomize the vision, creativity and resourcefulness that drive results. We are honored to recognize these excellent organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.
