For most governments, the cost of full- and part-time employees is our single largest expense. We need to be able to to better understand and track our labor costs to improve grants management, streamline the payment process and optimize staffing levels. Beyond our day-to-day challenges, major compliance and audit risk factors are looming. Governments are risking non-compliance with workplace regulations like FMLA and they aren't able to easily report on the large leave balances that their workforce has accrued. All of this adds up to a situation government simply can't afford in these difficult economic times.
