Pace University Transforms Workforce Management Processes
Founded in 1906, Pace University has campuses in New York City and Westchester County, New York, enrolling almost 13,000 students in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in its College of Health Professions, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Lubin School of Business, School of Education, School of Law, and Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. Academic experiences at Pace emphasize teaching from both a practical and theoretical perspective, drawing on the expertise of full-time and adjunct faculty members who balance academic preparation with professional experience to bring a unique dynamic to the classroom.
Pace University used a time-consuming manual timekeeping process for all nonexempt employees, including student employees, who represent about half of the workforce. The process took well over a week as timesheets moved from one department to another for approval, calculation, recalculation, and data entry. Overtime rule miscalculations by department managers resulted in overtime overpayments. Incorrect leave calculations often made leave balances inaccurate. Leave liability was difficult to calculate, and audits required rummaging through timecards stored in a dorm basement.
Interested in leaving manual processes behind, Pace University selected a Kronos automated workforce management solution that has streamlined payroll processing, improved compliance with pay and work rules, reduced overtime expenditures, and provided accurate leave balances and fast leave liability reporting.
Manual timekeeping resulted in OVERTIME OVERPAYMENTS and INACCURATE LEAVE BALANCES.
