How Can UKG Ready Help Your Company?
UKG Ready software can help your company modernize and simplify the way that employee information is obtained, stored, and used. UKG Ready’s Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model delivers on-demand services per employee, per month (PEPM). Mobile accessibility is provided at no additional charge via the UKG Ready Mobile application, available for Apple® iPhone®, Windows Mobile, and Android® platforms.
Make HR Management More Convenient
The UKG Ready Mobile Solution allows employees and managers to view schedules, timesheets, and time off balances while on the go. Employees can even request time off within seconds and check to see whether the time was approved using the app. Managers can view a listing of employees, approve time off requests, and view reports while working out in the field using the app.
Improve Recruitment and Job Satisfaction
UKG Ready makes the recruitment process easier and more enjoyable for everyone involved. Managers can post job ads, sort through a number of applications quickly, and keep track of applicant information throughout the recruitment process. For applicants, applying can be conveniently done using online tools. After applicants have moved through the hiring process to become employees, they will already be familiar with the UKG Ready experience. The software can be used for onboarding and benefits administration, so employees can get to know the company and what is being offered without feeling rushed. UKG Ready software also allows a continuous focus on employee development, with performance management and goal setting tools that make it easy for managers to provide consistent feedback.
Better Reporting and Visibility
Managers and employers have easy access up-to-the minute data from the entire organization. The information is organized into easy-to-read reports that can be viewed in dashboards — pulled from a single database — so that decisions can be made based on facts and figures. These features can help bring greater consistency to organizations with multiple locations, as data from all units is easily viewable in one convenient place.
While many HRMS software solutions assist with compliance readiness, UKG Ready takes it a step further with the UKG ACA Manager. The Affordable Care Act and surrounding compliance requirements are intricate, the ACA Manager helps to simplify those items to help manage compliance risks and avoid financial consequences. The UKG Ready ACA Manager allows managers to view and make changes to benefit information for employees with differing scheduling needs, providing assistance and information to manage compliance requirements with benefit offerings and reporting.
