Managing costs in uncertain times

When times become uncertain, it is often one of the first steps for companies to look for ways to reduce costs. In order to analyze possibilities to cut expenses in Human Resource Management, having a clear overview of the company’s structures and knowing where costs and liabilities lie, is crucial.

Ingentis org.manager not only displays the organizational structure but also key metrics of the entire workforce including headcount, employee hours, leave balances and salaries. Easily evaluate the impact of options such as freezing hiring, postponing promotions or seeking voluntary agreements to reduce excessive leave balances.

The software can also support figuring out for which positions it would be reasonable to reduce hours or in which org units headcount could potentially be cut.

In addition, the powerful simulation feature enables the evaluation of various business model scenarios as well as the effects of changes on key figures, such as costs and liabilities, as they are updated automatically in the reorganization process.

Big data visualization, for instance in the form of a Sunburst Chart, and relevant visualization rules allow to see e.g. all positions that exceed their assigned budget at a glance.

Know your employees’ skills

In times of change it becomes particularly significant to know exactly which positions and people are especially critical in an organization as well as the skills that make them so important.

Ingentis org.manager lets you view your entire workforce not only by roles but also by skill sets. Additionally, with our software, essential positions can be tagged as such and skills necessary to fill these positions can be documented enabling you to maintain a clear overview of truly important positions and their staffing status.

In disruptive times, this benefits you by knowing which employees possess the relevant competencies and can be made available for critical functions or projects even across business units.

Keep your workforce safe

Managing HR in disruptive times with Ingentis org.manager

The network visualization shows departments meeting a chosen quota of people working from home.

Some situations require companies to act in a particular way. In times of a global pandemic as in 2020, making sure that office space is not fully occupied in order to reduce the risk of infection seems reasonable. Organizing this in larger corporations may, however, be difficult.

Ingentis org.manager can help by tagging employees as working from home, working on-site or working a hybrid arrangement. Once a quota of how many people can be in the office at the same time is determined, the software can visualize whether this quota is met by the company as a whole, by business unit, division, or department. As an example, this can be done using the Sunburst View. All entities not meeting the quota could be highlighted, pointing out that there is still some need for action. Another possibility is to use network visualizations to get a quick overview of home office quotas across different departments. Additionally, the simulation function can be used to model situations of who can be at the office at what time. 

Being able to react quickly

Extraordinary situations create new responsibilities – also for organizations. During and after a global pandemic as in 2020 businesses can go one step further in trying to better understand the risk of infection transmission and susceptibility throughout the workforce. This necessitates the collection of additional employee data. In addition to the aforementioned location information (working from home fully, partly, or not at all), this may include recent travels, commute possibilities (e.g. own car, carpool, public transportation) and family compositions. It can even go as far as accumulating basic health information, such as vaccinations or other medical conditions that could influence the risk of infection transmission or susceptibility. Collecting and storing this type of extended data, however, requires employee consent.

Ingentis org.manager can support companies in gathering and visualizing this kind of information to have a better idea of infection risk for each employee as well as an overview of who is able to work from home and to what extent. This can be especially useful should another outbreak occur in the future as it allows for companies to react quickly by having the available information at hand.

The responsibility to adequately secure employee data, including enhanced data, remains paramount. Ingentis org.manager offers an access protection feature for sensitive information. Thereby data can be stored and displayed in ways to which employees have specifically consented. Even though the collection of this new data may require some effort, it comes with the added benefit of being able to keep the workforce safe more easily.
