What value is delivered?

Visier People Location Check-ins is designed to solve problems related to hybrid work arrangements and site occupancy. The unique problems solved by Visier People Location Check-ins are listed below:

  • Manage Flexible Work Arrangements: Provides insights into the frequency that remote or hybrid employees visit the office. This enables organizations to ensure employees or groups of employees are adhering to their agreed-upon in-person attendance requirements for any location or facility.

    Why is it important? Physical presence in the office facilitates face-to-face interaction and collaboration among team members. Certain tasks and projects may require real-time collaboration, brainstorming sessions, or immediate access to resources or equipment available in the office. By ensuring employees are coming to the office when necessary, organizations can foster effective teamwork and maximize the benefits of in-person collaboration.

  • Measure Effectiveness of Remote, Hybrid, and In-Person Employees: Helps you connect work type (i.e., remote, hybrid, or in-person) to business outcomes. This enables organizations to compare performance, engagement, turnover, or productivity* by work type or compare willingness to come into the office by demographic, organization, or location. Organizations can make data-driven decisions to optimize productivity and retention, and improve the employee experience.

    Why is it important? Measuring the effectiveness of the hybrid work program allows the organization to assess the impact on employee performance and productivity*. It helps identify whether the work arrangement is improving or hindering individual and team performance. By understanding the program's effectiveness, the organization can make informed decisions and take necessary steps to optimize productivity levels.

*Individual production is available under the Visier People® Total Rewards & Hourly Workers application.

  • Optimize Occupancy of Facilities: Provides an overview of the occupancy of your facilities, which enables your organization to assess whether the continued cost of the lease and other on-site expenses are justified.

    Why is it important? Office spaces come with associated costs, including rent, utilities, maintenance, and other operational expenses. By optimizing occupancy, organizations can ensure that their facilities are being utilized efficiently, minimizing unnecessary expenses. It helps avoid the waste of resources by aligning the space usage with actual needs, potentially resulting in cost savings.
