In today’s fast-paced world, businesses need to adapt to changing work environments and shifting industry landscapes. The rise of the stand-up economy, that is, industries with a highly mobile workforce, has created more complexities in employee management. The growth in these industries where it’s common to have workforces made up of seasonal or shift workers, constantly adapting with the business’ changing work requirements, highlights the importance of using technology to effectively manage each employee’s individual tasks and needs. This is why Employee Self-Service (ESS) tools, such as Ready People were created to solve complexities of the modern workforce and make it simple.
Allowing employees access to what they need, when they need creates a powerful workflow for the whole workforce, especially leveraged with powerful and intuitive all-in-one systems. Here’s how an ESS platform for workforce management, such as Ready People, can help your business stay ahead in the stand-up economy by empowering your employees, improving operations, and ultimately driving growth.

The geofenced clocking system available on the Ready People app for Ready Workforce by Zambion customers, employees are able to clock in for a shift directly from their phones, allowing them to eliminate steps like having to be at a computer to clock in for their shift.

This means less time spent on administrative tasks, improved work-life balance, and increased job satisfaction.

Having the ability to perform these administrative tasks without being at a computer speeds up the flow of information between employees and their managers.
