In the application

Decision-making basis thanks to workforce analytics software

With the GFOS solution, you create the basis for all business decisions. For example, it helps you to quickly answer questions about overstaffing or understaffing. In addition, workforce analytics software enables statistical HR analyses of working time tracking software per cost center, attendance and absences as well as a balance display in the traffic light system. Data from the past can be fed into the forecast in order to make predictions for the future. 

A dashboard with an overview of important HR key figures ensures easy handling: fairness rate, motivation indicator, planning quality, life-domain balance, health rate, demographic change, headcount statistics, reasons for leaving, fluctuation rate and break behavior. You can create further key figures yourself using our trend analysis generator.

Easily evaluate the equity ratio

The equity ratio illustrates how balanced the distribution of work assignments is in shift planning.  This metric is given as a percentage and supports those responsible for planning, particularly when designing duty and shift schedules.  Due to illness or special circumstances, it is often necessary to make adjustments to schedules.  However, this should not result in unfairness that puts employees at a disadvantage.  In order to provide those responsible for planning with support, the key figure helps to ensure fair planning for each specialist and within each planning area.

Motivation indicator to support your planning

The motivation score focuses on factors that can influence the motivation of skilled employees.  They have the opportunity to mark their preferred duty times and shift times in the desired books.   Staff planning is then carried out either automatically by the software or manually by those responsible for planning. A percentage calculation using the workforce analytics key figure can be used to determine the extent to which the requests are fulfilled. A higher fulfillment rate helps to positively influence employee motivation.  Repeated transfers within a day and other changes can in turn have a negative impact on motivation.  These and other factors are included in the calculation of the motivation score.

Digitally mapping planning quality

The planning quality reflects the quality of the deployment plan created.  This ensures that the plan created is carefully thought through and offers optimum coverage of requirements and needs, while at the same time leaving room for unforeseen failures.   Various elements are visualized, from requirements and planning to the number of changes after the plan has been approved.
