With so many agencies submitting candidates and only a few being reviewed at a time the chance of a candidate making it to a review and in front of a hiring manager is low.

Kronos Workforce Central

Kronos Workforce Central is well-suited for large organizations seeking a simplified time-recording system or are trying to get away from manual timesheets being submitted. Larger organizations would see a greater return on investment while using this system. It is less appropriate for smaller organizations with fewer employees, as the cost of the system likely would be greater than the investment of the system.

Pros

  • Centralized location
No photo available
  • I personally feel like timekeeping is very well thought out and has some powerful tools built in. There is a bit of a learning curve but with strategically placed SMEs we were able to get the use and functionality we needed out of the system.
  • Workforce planning has been crucial in planning operational support in our retail and customer service centers. It is also editable and modifiable as needed.

Cons

  • There are so many other agencies submitting candidates it is hard to make a placement
  • Only a few candidates are reviewed at a time and sent to the hiring managers
  • Lack of feedback

  • Without proper implementation and guidelines around accountability Kronos can become a burden just like any other misused system. With that said, there are managers who manage near 50 people in our organization and if employees don’t manage/update their time cards a manager will be overwhelmed to keep it accurate for them. When it comes to floating hours and tying it to new locations or cost centers via pay codes it can be a challenge to correct mismanaged time cards.
  • One complaint is that that timecards don’t always update in live time when approving or adjusting hours or time off. When in a crunch to approve timecards prior to payroll being run it can be a little intimidating to submit a timecard that doesn’t represent a full-week of work although you entered or approved the correct hours. Speed and processing of the system lags, so can cause frustration.
  • More automation around requests and approvals would be beneficial to high volume managers. Having to manually approve each request or change can be very time consuming for leaders who must log into the system to do so. Automation around holiday or sick time requests would be nice and would provide some relief to teams. Additionally, creating features to approve such requests visa email link or similar would save the time of having to log into the application.

I am personally not a huge fan of Kronos Workforce Central. It crashes on me too often, and it runs slowly. It is not a quick program to use at all. Once it actually starts working, it is simple to use, but it is not one that you can use if you need information promptly.

Having no experience with Kronos prior to using it in March 2016, their customer service team taught me how to use it the right way after my initial training at work. I am well-versed in data analysis using Excel and Access primarily, so once I discovered that Kronos had a reporting feature built in, I've used the feature quite a few times to help our properties evaluate their production costs and make good labor decisions. I give Kronos a 10 because once a person takes the time to learn how to use the software, they'll realize that Kronos is far more effective than most, and gives users more ways to access their information where and when they want to.

Alternatives Considered

We have made several placements through Fieldglass - not sure how their review process differs from Agile-1

Can't compare. Quickbooks was easy, but lacked functional reporting which is essential to manage employee time

Return on Investment

  • Have not made a placement through Agile-1 yet
  • Lack of feedback leaves us wondering why our candidate was not a fit
No photo available
  • This has had a positive effect on payroll as there is not a lot of room for errors with this software. We have found that the hours we are paying people are the hours that they are actually working. We should see a great improvement in paycheck errors as well as the money saved for paying people when they really shouldn't be getting paid ie: overtime.
