Kronos Adds Employee Contact-tracing Capability
To help organizations and their essential employees during the COVID-19 pandemic while providing new functionality to support protective measures for reopening, Kronos Inc. introduced an automated reporting capability for employee contact tracing that will be available for Workforce Dimensions, Kronos Workforce Central, Kronos Workforce Ready, and Kronos iSeries Central customers globally at no additional charge.
Kronos' automated reporting capability streamlines the employee contact-tracing process. Leveraging data science to analyze labor records and time and attendance data collected by a Kronos solution, the new capability can generate a simple report organizations can use to quickly identify and communicate to employees who may have come in contact with a co-worker who has tested positive or is presumed positive for COVID-19.
As state, local, and health officials dedicate an increasing amount of resources to various contact-tracing initiatives, this information can empower organizations to partner with health officials to rapidly notify potentially exposed employees and ensure their people receive appropriate care, treatment, and proper direction – such as self-quarantining instructions and initiating heightened cleaning efforts in exposed work areas – to help reduce the risk of further virus transmission.
