Kronos to release gamification feature in Workforce Central suite


Chelmsford, Mass.-– Kronos Inc. is releasing a new leaderboard feature within its Workforce Central suite designed to reward and recognize employees, managers, and teams for positive job performance and adhering to an organization’s time and attendance policies and procedures. Scheduled for official release in Dec. 2014, Kronos leaderboards can be enabled in the Workforce Central suite so organizations can reward employees, managers, and teams for following proper time and attendance policies and procedures with a variety of features.

These features include:

o Recommended time and attendance challenges that award points for a perfect time card, approval of time cards, perfect attendance, no missed punches, overtime-related bonuses, and pre-defined exceptions – such as punching in on time. Different point values and multipliers can be assigned for each action;

o Capability to build additional challenges based on specified workforce management attributes, workflow notifications, and exceptions created by the organization, as well as the ability to alter the text and change the name of the leaderboards and challenges;

o Automatic near-time leaderboard updates tied to specific employees and/or teams based on time and attendance gamification rules, game time frame (e.g. pay period), and employee eligibility as determined by the organization; and

o Toggle function between peer-to-peer and team-to-team leaderboards and challenges based on organizational charts and reporting structure.

Configuring specific workflow notifications in Kronos leaderboards allow organizations to build unique challenges that award points to employees when a manager inserts comments about exceptional performance.
