Payroll and HR Process Improvement

Our client, a factory with 60 employees needed comprehensive HR support.

The Problem

Due to the expansion of their factory operations, our client significantly increased the number of hourly employees. Therefore, it was critical to start carefully managing working hours. Management also needed to prepare for future increases in employee headcount.

Our Solution

We consulted with our client and launched an HR business process reengineering initiative. Our plan included the following:
• Payroll processing for hourly non-exempt employees as well as exempt employees, expatriates, and part-time employees
• Time and labor management (TLM)
• Timesheet calculation automation
• Time tracking via facial recognition system
• Paid-time-off (PTO) management
• An electronic PTO request and benefit accrual system
• A human resource information system (HRIS)
• The establishment of an employee database
• Onboarding and offboarding procedures
• Benefit and performance management systems
• ACA compliance measures

The Results

By working closely with our client, we were able to provide them with the following lasting benefits:
• Single-source access to all employee data
• The elimination of erroneous data, duplicate data entry, data inconsistency, and noncompliance risk
• Electronic data storage solutions resulting in reduced costs and increased office space
• A streamlined HR administration and compliance process, enabling our client to focus on people over procedures
