WellStar Health System has selected an integrated suite of workforce management solutions from Kronos to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity. The solution will be used to manage more than 11,000 employees across WellStar Health System's five hospitals in northwest Georgia.
Previously, WellStar used a variety of labor-intensive products and processes for employee scheduling, time and attendance data collection, budgeting, and other decision support functions. WellStar's management team realized the potential for incremental cost savings with an integrated and fully automated solution with applications to support all of its workforce management business processes.
WellStar selected Kronos employee scheduling, labor analytics and absence management applications, along with biometric data collection devices. As the Kronos solution operates in real time, WellStar managers will always be working with the most current, high-quality information. Anticipated benefits include standardized employee scheduling across all hospitals; better management reporting for more effective decision making; ability to track labor laws and regulations more consistently; and improved overall workforce productivity.
