May 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Obesity, Fitness & Wellness Week -- New York Health & Racquet Club, a 40-year-old family-owned and managed company with nine locations across New York City, has selected workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated to be deployed in the Kronos Cloud. The health club selected Kronos to further improve service levels for its members, gain a competitive advantage, and continue its mission of being an employer of choice. News Facts New York Health & Racquet Club selected time and attendance, employee scheduling, and absence management applications from Kronos for use by all employees across all locations.By deploying these applications in the Kronos Cloud, the health club will realize the benefits of having Kronos perform all configuration, maintenance, and upgrades of the workforce management solution, such as enabling the IT department to focus on other priorities (see also Kronos Incorporated).

For added innovation in how New York Health & Racquet Club will manage its workforce, it selected Kronos mobile and tablet applications. These applications deliver real-time, location-specific workforce information and will further help frontline managers effectively manage in the moment by allowing them to discover potential workforce related issues and rapidly respond. As a result, both managers and employees will be able to use mobile devices to instantly take action on common administrative tasks - from anywhere, at any time.

Additionally, one of the biggest issues that the health club is looking to address with Kronos is overtime control. Prior to Kronos, managers across different locations did not have real-time visibility into a standardized, automated workforce management system, and could not effectively preempt inaccuracies and inconsistencies that resulted in unnecessary overtime. The Kronos scheduling solution allows New York Health and Racquet to monitor its employees schedule and manage overtime.

The Kronos absence management solution will also help New York Health & Racquet Club ensure that all absences - planned, incidental, or extended - are managed and accurately tracked as they carry associated costs, risks, and productivity hits.

Ultimately, with the automated and streamlined workforce management system from Kronos, New York Health & Racquet Club will more effectively leverage its workforce to deliver the high-quality service its members expect.
