Codicote, UK, 16 January, 2013 — Kronos Incorporated today announced that Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust has successfully rolled out SMART workforce management e‑rostering across all departments, both clinical and non-clinical, for 136 rosters covering 2,500 staff. It has also introduced the solution to support 1,000 community staff for timesheets and payroll. The Trust has seen improved rosters that meet the flexible working requirements of staff while providing the correct skill mix for patient care, as well as improved staff sickness and holiday records for managers.
Liz Pugh, HR manager at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust : “Our staff working in community services have embraced the new SMART workforce management system from Kronos. Many of them are used to adopting new technologies, often relying upon them when working remotely and have quickly appreciated the benefits of having timesheets approved without relying on the post, as well as more accurate payslips. As well as the benefits we have realised by having Trust-wide information, our managers have really seen the benefits with improved information that they can easily access, including sickness and holiday data. It’s easy to use and gives us a one-stop shop for information.”
Tristan Spencer, director, SMART, A Kronos Solution : “Harrogate and District NHS Trust has been able to realise genuine cost benefits from efficient roster planning as well as meet staff working requirements while still deliver high-quality patient care. With centralised information, managers are also able to have an accurate picture of staff records across the whole Trust services, including the wider community services, for improved analysis and planning.”
