One of the biggest difficulties with ever-shrinking the government budget is figuring out ways to stretch money without cutting constituent services. It turns out that the largest portion of state and local government operational expenditures is spent on workplace expenditures – things like labor costs, employee work and leave tracking, and compliance. With that being said, how do we navigate the complex world of labor costs to reign in this spending?

Managing these workplace expenditures can be tricky when considering laws, labors costs, timekeeping, and productivity. However, better understanding of how to manage and track labor costs will be a cost-effective way to save your government’s budget and make it more efficient.

Join GovLoop’s upcoming Virtual Summit where The State of Ohio’s Timekeeping Administrator, Janet Wampler and Krono’s Vice President of Public Sector Professional Services, Donald Pagel will share best practices for the private sector to optimize limited budgets and manage labor costs to benefit both your government and constituents.

Stretching budgets to their fullest potential stems from managing and tracking labor costs as smartly and efficiently as possible. From this training, Wampler and Pagel will share their expert advice to reign in workplace expenditures through automated tracking of labor costs. A well-managed operational budget will benefit your government by creating efficiencies in:

  • Controlling labor costs
  • Increasing employee satisfaction
  • Minimizing compliance risk
  • Managing leave liability

The lessons from the online training will help government officials at all levels get control of their workplace expenditures. By automating labor costs, your government will reduce the cost of operating the workplace, improve efficiencies within your government, increase productivity through better tracking, and make your government more transparent. Diving into the complex area of labor costs is a wise choice for any government managing a tight budget.

“Tips and Tricks for Tracking Labor Costs in the Public Sector” is part of GovLoop’s State and Local Innovators Virtual Summit, an all-day, virtual event with 6 different online trainings, networking opportunities and resources to help you do your job better. It takes place on September 16th. You can see the schedule and register here for free. You can earn up to 6 CPEs by attending, so be sure to register and share with your colleagues!
