Modern workforce management software should help you find scheduling solutions and logistical clarity – two things that are exceedingly difficult with outdated systems. You can establish a use case for a new workforce management solution by drawing attention to hiccups, roadblocks, and frustrations with current time and attendance workflows. If you’d like concrete data comparisons, our Ceridian experts can help calculate return on investment (ROI) based on your current workforce management practices using our ROI tool.

Dayforce Workforce Management integrates multiple employee management features like Time & Attendance, Labor Planning, Scheduling, Absence Management, and Task Management. Using clocks that are synchronised organisation-wide and scheduling software with employee self-serve features, you can help ensure unified workforce management efforts.

Each Workforce Management module works in unison with a single rules engine supporting your efforts. Our workforce management software collects, organises, and distributes shift information and employee data, and it turns these figures into digestible reports. Dayforce offers users timecard reporting, scheduling budget guidelines, compliance risk assessments, and more.

Dayforce is an industry-agnostic solution, offering workforce management tools to organisations across the globe.

While workforce management software cannot ensure compliance, it can help equip you with tools and resources to monitor your own compliance. Dayforce helps users manage and reduce compliance risk with customisable modules and reports. With these features, you can take one step closer to abiding by fair scheduling regulations and avoid miscalculating overtime wages.
