Our Workforce Ready platform encourages and empowers your modern workforce with a mobile app that allows managers and employees to access HR, timekeeping, payroll, and benefits tasks from anywhere.
Instead of a mobile app that is completely different from your desktop version, our app is more user friendly by using the exact same interface as the web portal, so your employees don’t have to learn how to use it.
Before the pandemic, there were more jobs available than people to fill them; unemployment was at historic lows.

Many of us have heard that there is a lesson to be found in every challenge, which is true for both individuals and businesses.
