In Winnipeg, Manitoba, there’s a large convention centre with multiple unions, varying wage allocations, and complex scheduling requirements.
It takes more than just a great team to keep track of all these different elements, it also takes some great systems and processes.
Unfortunately, according to Warren Sawatzky, HR Director, these systems and processes were in need of a major update.
Not only was their team using separate programs for their payroll processing and employee time tracking, they were also having to manually keep track of additional information like vacations and sick leave on separate spreadsheets.
The process made life more difficult for everyone on the team. From the Controller to their Payroll Administrator, and all the way to IT.
Their people management challenges were multi-departmental.
