Canadian Trends in Workforce Management In 2017

Published: December 23, 2016

Organizational management is undergoing an incessant and gradual overhaul. The change is evident on a global scale and the intensifying competition in the business domains has mandated the organizations to set sail according to the changing winds or else, they would lag behind in the race. The change in the in the basic organizational settings is majorly trending in the workforce management sector.

Organizations are putting a greater magnitude of their efforts and interests in leveraging the performance, productivity, and the pace of organizational growth by optimizing the efficiency of their human capital. Canadian organizational sectors are depicting similar inclinations by welcoming an immense influx of technology and innovation to reshape their contemporary management mechanisms.

While accumulating Big Data in its optimum accuracy, reducing wastage and redundant expenditures and coping with the costs and consequences of absenteeism still continue to be an area of prime concern for the local business sectors. Here, we share the trending patterns of workforce management in Canada for this year and the next.

Automation will Rule the Game

Following the global patterns of workforce management, Canadian organizations too are making significant investments in automating their conventional patterns of workforce management.

Incorporating tech-driven systems as a smart solution and an effective replacement for the otherwise manual tasks and procedures is not only transforming the basic operational management designs. It has also proven to be effective in bringing in immense benefits and outcomes in return, making up for the cost incurred in the automation and overhaul.

Hence, as it happened this year, the automation of workforce management designs through smart systems like Time and Attendance software will continue to revolutionize all organizational sectors and industries in Canada in 2017.

The Integration of Fragmented Operational Units

The automation of systems and the use of smart technology have made it convenient for businesses to integrate and interconnect the various areas that were previously working as independent units. This trend has been observed in industries and market sectors in big and small organizations alike.

Managing a disintegrated organizational setting, especially if there are a myriad of operational units, makes it quite a tedious and exasperating task at the management’s end to accumulate and analyze data, devise policies, and lay down the future discourse.

Hence, most organizations have made it their top priority to integrate and tie all the fragmented entities and subsidiary units of the organization by cumulating the impact and accuracy of their individual data, performance and efficiency, formulate a better strategic planning for the organization.

Resource Wastage and Slam Dunk Costs – Core Hindrances to Optimizing Returns

Redundant costs, resource wastage and the increasing expenditure in the labor supervision and workforce management have turned out to be a crucial area that needs to be addressed on an emergency basis. The inefficient management mechanisms, inaccurate data records due to human error and the increasing payroll costs has mandated the organizations to incorporate urgent and effective measures to cope with this growing concern. Addressing the issues in real-time is a primary challenge and many organizations are striving to adopt an instant and smart approach to issue resolution and conflict management in real time.
