LOWELL, Massachusetts, & WESTON, Florida – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM), payroll, HR service delivery and workforce management solutions, today announced that Mosaic Forest Management Corporation, a company engaged in sustainable harvesting on the coast of British Columbia, Canada, uses UKG Pro and Ready for UKG to take control of an extraordinarily complicated payroll framework that has over 200 payroll rules within a payroll group in Ready.

Mosaic is the Forest Manager for TimberWest and Island Timberlands, two affiliates that have operated on Vancouver Island for over a century, providing sustainable forest management on their private forest lands and Crown tenure areas. Mosaic provides a range of services from harvest planning to operations, marketing and sales, finance and payroll. Payroll requires complex payroll administration, including scenarios where field employees can, in a single day, work in a variety of activities with different pay rates, which change more with the number of employees. hours worked and other bonuses.

Prior to automating time tracking for unionized employees with UKG, most of the record keeping including overtime, double time, weekend work, shift premiums and vacation administration , was done manually. Once these manual calculations were completed, a report was created and then imported into Pro for payroll processing. Managers spent a lot of time on paper approvals of timesheets and overtime. Mosaic was looking for a solution that could support its complex compensation structure and transform the payroll experience for payroll, HR, managers and employees. It selected UKG for its best workforce management solutions.

“UKG has provided one of the only fully integrated platforms with the functionality to handle multiple work rates and the complexity of our shift premium rates,” said Louise Bender, Director of Personnel at Mosaic. “We were able to configure Ready to process our rules for different pay combinations. We now have automated consistency across our organization and have access to meaningful data in real time. ”

For Mosaic managers and employees, the UKG mobile app provides an excellent end-user experience. Employees find it easy to record their work history on their phone, and they have visibility into manager changes and approvals, as well as one-off electronic access to their payslips that provide detailed insight of their hours worked, various bonuses and pay codes, as well as their various rates of pay. Managers receive an easy-to-use electronic report and they can divide the report into groups for further review. Overall, the company is saving dozens of hours each month through administrative improvements.

“Previously, payroll administrators could spend more than three hours a day entering data, validating it and calculating payroll – time they now spend on higher value-added activities,” said Chahat. Sharma, project manager at Mosaic. “The interventions of our IT department have also been eliminated, such as extracting data from our old system and monitoring file flows in Pro for payroll processing. ”

According to Sharma, using UKG for HCM management and workforce management has accelerated the company’s transition from manual processes to an automated solution.

“Our success is cross-functional and we appreciate the time savings and efficiency achieved with the UKG products we have implemented,” said Sharma. “The interface between Pro and Ready is simple. For our salaried employees, we capture employee data via UKG Pro Onboarding and tick a box if we want this information to be available in time tracking. Because of this simplicity, we are able to take advantage of product features including time off, calendar views, and vacation carryover management. For our unionized employees, complex payroll rules are processed in the UKG time solution and then sent back to the payroll gateway for payroll processing. The integration works very well and helps ensure data integrity.

“Once business leaders have had the opportunity to experience the impact UKG can have on their operations, their business and their employees, they realize that HR technology is a critical infrastructure for their organization.” , said Chris Todd, president of UKG. “We congratulate the Mosaic team for using UKG to drive transformative change to their business and for achieving measurable improvements in the benefits of operations while improving the employee experience. ”
