Introducing New Workforce Mechanics to Generate Higher Value across Consumer-facing Businesses


Surely, human beings have proven themselves to excel across a world of different horizons, but when push comes to shove, there still remains an awful little that we do better than growing on a consistent basis. This unfaltering pledge to get better, no matter the situation, has already fetched the world some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the stated group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is purposed around its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to realize all the possibilities for us that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look should be able to reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centerpiece of every horizon. Now, having such a powerful tool run the show did expand our experience in many different directions, but even after reaching so far ahead, this prodigious concept called technology will somehow keep on delivering the right goods. The same has grown to become a lot more evident in recent times, and assuming one new HRM-themed development pans out just like we envision, it will only propel that trend towards greater heights over the near future and beyond.

Ceridian, a global leader in human capital management (HCM) technology, has officially launched a set of innovations that are designed to optimize workforce planning and improve frontline employee experience. These innovations notably come in the context of Ceridian’s proprietary platform, Dayforce, which is the only solution that offers workforce management (WFM) and global payroll capabilities through a one exclusive source. In practice, this platform helps retailers and the hospitality industry empower and retain frontline workers, while simultaneously increasing operational agility at the time of making staffing decisions. Talk about how the new development will enhance the given picture moving forward, we must begin from the Dayforce’s brand-new forecasting mechanism, which will leverage machine learning to make it possible for retailers to reduce labor costs and improve productivity. Here, the idea is to optimize workforce allocation by forecasting future labor requirements down to 15-minute increments. This granular-level approach, like you can guess, should go a long way in evolving the user to become more precise over time. Next up, we have the prospect of shift marketplace. You see, in today’s day and age, a workforce must be agile enough to take up different responsibilities, if needed. Keeping that in mind, Ceridian’s new shift marketplace enables employees to take on unfilled shifts at any location they choose. Such an arrangement would, in turn, pave the way for them to meet their financial goals, and on the other hand, it will empower managers to fill their labor demand needs without incurring any extra costs that have long been associated with bringing in outside resources. Then, there is the next-generation labor planning functionality, which thrives on allowing customers to bring finance and operations together during the budget and planning processes. This is a crucial feature, because when they do so, they align their forecasting and scheduling efforts with wider corporate targets so to achieve better coordination. Complimenting the same is an assortment of scalable data models, a unified experience for long- and short-term planning, and yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily workforce insights that can be narrowed down to zone and position levels for gaining deeper understanding. Rounding up the highlights is a reimagined time experience. Such s feature reveals itself once you consider Dayforce’s newfound ability to prioritize simpler workflows, workflows that bring to the fore a straightforward clocking in and out system, and higher overall accessibility. As for managers, this new user experience delivers on its promise by highlighting what is important, including unplanned labor costs, and time-sensitive insights, such as no-shows, missed breaks, approaching overtime, and upcoming departures.

“Forward-thinking retail and hospitality organizations need to embrace modern technologies, like machine learning and real-time workforce intelligence, to tackle the staffing and compliance challenges their industries face,” said Jack Bennett, Vice President and Retail Solutions Advisory Lead at Ceridian. “Coupled with Dayforce Wallet, our award-winning, on-demand pay solution, Dayforce is a single holistic platform for workforce management, pay, and talent that unlocks quantifiable value and gives retail and hospitality leaders an edge to better compete – and win – with today’s boundless workforce.”

Founded way back in 1932, Ceridian has risen up on the back of its flagship cloud platform, Dayforce, which is well-equipped to pack together functionalities like human resources, payroll, benefits, workforce management, and talent management for the purpose of offering an integrated HCM experience. The company’s excellence in what it does can also be understood once you consider that it serves, at the moment, more than 1,280 retailers around the world. This includes various industry leaders like American Dream, Buehler’s Fresh Foods, Costa Coffee, Sobeys, as well as SPARC Group LLC, which has many leading retail brands under its umbrella, such as Aeropostale, Brooks Brothers, Forever 21, and Reebok.

“We are a special place to work because our engaged team members are a key differentiator for our business. With the Dayforce platform, we will be able to deliver a modern, mobile-first employee experience that enables direct communication, seamless shift bidding, and access to on-demand pay with Dayforce Wallet, which will help to differentiate Sobeys in a challenging labor market,” said Sandra Pasquini, SVP of HR Operations & Systems at Sobeys.
