Even in an age in which robots and other machines have become increasingly common in the manufacturing workplace, your workforce continues to play an invaluable role in meeting your organization’s production targets and customer expectations for quality.
However, to use your workers’ skills and talents most effectively, you need to hire and manage them within the parameters of applicable labor laws. Failing to maintain labor compliance can not only result in financial and reputational risk for your organization, but also pose a threat to worker safety, well-being and morale.
To ensure you’re doing all you can to build a productive and committed manufacturing workforce, you can take advantage of workforce management tools that automate workflows for time and attendance, scheduling, leave management and more. These tools can be configured to comply with federal and state labor laws governing overtime, shift differentials and paid leaves. As a result, every hour of worker time is spent productively and you meet your goals for efficiency and compliance.
