Coronavirus and the Shift In Workforce Management
Time & Attendance Resources to Help You Solve Workforce Challenges Caused by Coronavirus
As some staff return to physical places of work whilst others are still working from home, it’s possible your workforce is split over different locations. You might also be utilising shifts to reduce staff numbers in one location and maintain social distancing, or discussing whether flexible working is the future for your organisation. We have collated the following resources which may be useful in helping you maintain workforce visibility and reduce HR administration through the challenges this situation presents.

Historic attendance reports if your staff members contract coronavirus
Should one of your staff test positive for coronavirus, you will need to quickly and accurately identify when they worked, and which other members of staff they may have come into contact with. Bodet’s Time & Attendance Systems allow you to produce historic attendance data for this purpose, based on declared clocking times. Protect your staff by ensuring you can immediately inform those affected, so they can follow government advice.
Our Visitor Management System allows you to produce the same historic attendance reports for visitors to your premises as they sign in electronically.CONTACT US TO SEE HOW WE CAN HELP

Display coronavirus safety information on Clocking In Terminals
Bodet’s Kelio Visio X7 Smart Terminal can be used as a communication touchpoint with your staff, making it a vital tool in distributing information about new coronavirus safety measures. Not only can it display reminders such as maintaining social distancing directly on the terminal screen, the staff survey function can be used to ask workers to return home and contact your HR department if they report they have symptoms.
Broadcast coronavirus safety information to your staff
As staff return to work during the coronavirus outbreak, there will be important safety information you need to communicate to your employees. However, since workers will be returning to a familiar environment, there is a danger this information could be forgotten without frequent reminders.
In addition to Time & Attendance Systems, Bodet also offer Industrial Bell Systems. As well as regulating shifts and breaks, Bodet's Harmonys System provides the opportunity to communicate critical information to your staff throughout the day, either using live or pre-recorded announcements. These can be automatically scheduled, and broadcast across your whole premises or to customisable zones.
Example Coronavirus safety announcements include:
- Coronavirus cough sneeze (male voice)
- Coronavirus social distancing (male voice)
- Coronavirus wash hands (male voice)
