Case study: for a client organization with employees work in shifts, working and non-working days depending on the job profile and specific timesheet rules and transfer, Smartree created a new instrument for payroll planning: MyStaff Schedule.
Thus, for a total of approximately 450 employees, the payroll process became more efficient by creating rule exceptions and reducing costs associated with improperly distributed work to a smaller or bigger number of employees than necessary..
In this particular case, after analyzing the specific business needs, several profiles have been created each one associated with a set of specific rules: Normal, Front Office, Manufacture and so on.
- The Normal profile includes TESA employees with normal working hours (8 hours a day). Saturdays, Sundays and holidays are set by default as non-working days and hours worked in these days are regarded as overtime.
- The Front Office Profile includes staff from Front Office and Call Center for whom the work schedule is 8 hours a day, but with the opportunity to work on Saturdays and Sundays and to take rest days on normal working days. For hours worked on Saturdays and Sundays there is a bonus.
- The Manufacture Profile includes employees working in shifts of 12 hours from Monday to Sunday. There is a bonus for night hours and non-working day activity.
After this stage, the program planning and the calculation of the indicators of processes timesheets and thus the payroll could be resolved quickly by creating rules for all months.
