  • 1. Savings from an Automated WFM Solution
    Examples from Various Industries
  • 2. Savings
    Implementing a Workforce Management solution is a large monetary commitment
    Providers of WFM systems always promise strong savings
    Here are some actual values to back up that claim…
  • 3. Manufacturing
    If you have 1 employee, who is paid $20/hour and is away from work for15 minutes (i.e. arrives late, takes a long lunch, or leaves early):
    $20 per hour = $5 for 15 minutes
    $5 x 5 days a week = $25
    $25 x 52 weeks per year
    $1300 per year of unproductive paid time
    Most manufacturing firms have more than just 1 employee though – if you had 50 employees with the same habit:
    $65 000 per year of unproductive paid time
  • 4. Professional Services
    If your company has 50 hourly employees who are paid $15/hour each, as well as 50 salaried employees, a WFM solution can save you:
    At least 1.5% of wages for hourly workers with improved accuracy: $23,400/year in labour costs
    $25,000/year in hiring and training costs, if there are just 2 less hourly and 2 less salaried employee turnovers a year
    Up to 6 paid hours a week (for a supervisor paid $25/hour, that’s $7,800/year), with software to generate employee schedules
    That translates to $56,200/year in savings, not to mention the added value of abiding by compliance regulations
  • 5. Retail
    Let’s look at a chain of grocery stores with 50 different locations where managers are paid $20/hour:
    A WFM solution saves managers 2 hours/week, given the scheduling and attendance administration capabilities:
    2 hours/week x 50 locations = 100 hours
    $20/hour x 100 hours = $2,000
    $2,000 x 52 weeks/year
    $104,000 per year
    With optimized scheduling capabilities, managers can save 5 hours/week in overtime at a rate of $18/hour:
    5 overtime hours/week x 50 locations = 250 hours
    250 hours x $18/hour = $4,500
    $4,500 x 52 weeks/year
    $234,000 per year
  • 6. General Benefits
    Organizations can save up to 5% of their annual payroll costs with a workforce management solution, helping companies in the following aspects:
    Decreasing payroll errors
    Decreasing total payroll processing time
    Decreasing unauthorized leave time
    Improving labour reporting
    Decreasing payroll inflation
    Eliminating costs associated with paper timecards
    Eliminating the risks of employee buddy punching or time fraud
  • 7. Return on Investment
    Companies can see monetary savings as well as other benefits from implementing an automated workforce management system
    Above all, businesses strive to see a Return on Investment from their WFM system – with the right planning and implementation strategy, this is almost guaranteed!
