Four Things To Do Before Signing Your WFM Provider Contract

Tuesday, April 18 | 12:00-1:00pm ET

The deployment of modern technology for workforce management (WFM)—in the cloud, automated, integrated—brings much upside.

First, the employer sees demonstrable gains in productivity. Second, when the technology replaces a legacy system, the reduction in cost can be significant. Together, these benefits have a tendency to yield a healthy ROI. However, the process to find and sign with the right WFM vendor, specifically for Time and Attendance, Scheduling, and Absence Management, technology is rife with potential pitfalls.

During this webinar, Brent Skinner, principal analyst at Nucleus Research, explores when employers should think about replacing their WFM technology—or deploy it for the first time. He’ll also share four things employers should absolutely do before signing a WFM provider contract. A Q&A will follow.
