Quinn Hotels has selected Kronos to manage more than 1,180 employees at The Slieve Russell Hotel, Buswells Hotel, The Iveagh Fitness Club in Ireland and The Belfry in the West Midlands in the UK.
The Kronos solution has enabled the hotels to eliminate payroll inaccuracies and provide real-time visibility to employee absence information.
Kronos was first rolled out at the Slieve Russell Hotel approximately four years ago and more recently at the other establishments in the group
Kronos replaces a predominately manual time and attendance system and has already helped the group to manage payroll administration and workforce management consistently accross the hotels.
It provides each hotel with a solution for managing time and attendance, which interfaces with the hotel’s existing payroll system.
This has significantly reduced payroll administration time and assists with eliminating payroll inaccuracies.
Kronos alerts managers to trends in absence and sickness and they use Kronos to input staffing schedules for the coming weeks, from which a report is created to highlight the cost of running all the departments for that period, which assists in controlling staffing costs and budgets.
“We selected Kronos as it can deal with the complex nature of hotel shift patterns, provide us with essential visibility to employee absence levels and trends and accurately monitor and measure the time and attendance of our employees,” said Orla Murphy, HR Manager at Quinn Hotels.
“Kronos enables us to automate processes and eliminate unnecessary paperwork.”
Employees will clock in and out of shifts using Kronos through a combination of biomentric fingerprint scanners and swipe card readers.
Keith Statham, Managing Director, Kronos UK, commented:
“When a huge part of your workforce is made up of employees responsible for customer service, they become arguably the most important element of your business. They represent the major operating cost and your largest controllable expense - managing them efficiently is a critical task.”
