Just in Time: Tracking Time and Attendance

Access the Full Webinar Video

Time and attendance management is critical for workforce development programs. It enables organizations to toss out those manual timesheets and ensure that every minute is tracked automatically, establishes a transparent work environment, cultivates time management and improves compliance by eliminating the chance of human error. It can also ensure that employees or laborers are paid on time and without error, which is key to fostering satisfaction. 

Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) has a transitional jobs program that supports over 300 workers, across 30 sites, to get same-day pay while gaining skills and work history. After launching a project to replace their payroll processor, unexpected delays put them at risk of not being able to process payments to their workers. Register for our upcoming webinar to see how they used Exponent Case Management and FormAssembly to fill the gap between transitioning to a new payroll process without interrupting service. 

Sign up to access this on-demand webinar to learn: 

  • The benefits of tracking time and attendance digitally 
  • How to support employment outcomes at every stage
  • How to leverage ECM’s Workforce Development Module and FormAssembly to track time and attendance 
  • Ways to improve efficiency and compliance
