CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 24, 2014 — Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a long-standing user of workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated recently added workforce analytics and mobile applications from Kronos to more effectively manage its workforce and improve productivity.
Based on the benefits it achieved – including a reduction of labor costs – through the use of the Kronos time and attendance application, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital purchased the Kronos workforce analytics application designed specifically for the hospital environment, delivering instant insights for faster, fact-based decision making.
The workforce analytics solution will help Robert Wood to more effectively control costs, manage budgets, and measure productivity through timely adjustments to labor levels and fluctuating patient volume. This will help the hospital select the right level of labor from the most cost-effective source and preempt costly labor-related errors as it transitions to a value-based care delivery model with an increased focus on costs, quality, and outcomes.
For added innovation in workforce management, Robert Wood also selected Kronos mobile applications – available on both smartphones and tablet devices – making it easier for leadership, managers, and employees to complete a wide range of workforce-related tasks from any location, at any time.
The latest Kronos solutions will allow Robert Wood to empower and engage its workforce while further controlling labor costs, minimizing compliance risk, and improving workforce productivity.
