Premier Farnell introduces attendance management tool

Premier Farnell has launched a time and attendance management tool to manage the sickness absence of the 350 employees based in its Leeds distribution centre.

The implementation of the system, provided by Kronos, will allow employees to better manage their time and enable the electronic components distributor to increase payroll accuracy and productivity.

The tool will be fully integrated with the organisation’s Empower payroll system.

Nick Chaney, global supply chain analyst manager at Premier Farnell, said: “Our existing time and attendance system no longer supported the needs of the business as we support a growing multi-channel experience.

“One of the key advantages Kronos will bring to the organisation is real-time reporting with live data to give us up-to-the minute information about the business. Managing in real-time rather than in arrears will enable us to proactively manage and support our people better.

“We also anticipate introducing self-serve facilities with Kronos, where employees will be able to see their own timecards, request holidays and check shifts as we continue to work to improve the employment experience at Premier Farnell.”
