OnSide Youth Zones realises time savings and boosts employee morale with UKG workforce management

OnSide Youth Zones is the charity behind a network of 21st century youth centres called Youth Zones. Employing over 750 people across 14 Youth Zones, the sites are designed to give young people living in some of the UK’s most disadvantaged areas somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to in their leisure time.

Partnering with UKG, Onside has modernised their workforce management processes and streamline critical HR tasks, driving time savings for managers, employee and the payroll team and allowing Youth Zone employees more time to do what they do best – serve their communities.

By implementing the UKG Ready time and attendance and absence management solution Onside Youth Zones has achieved:

  • Colossal reductions in time taken to prepare payroll - from several days to several minutes
  • Driven a 60% reduction in time spent on payroll related tasks in each Youth Zone
  • Improved employee engagement through accurate pay and access to mobile self-service functionality
  • Reduced manager administration time to just 10 minutes every other day – allowing more time to spend serving their young people and communities

“Before we had UKG, recording worked hours was all about maintaining timesheets on a piece of paper. It was a manual process with employees writing down what time they came in and what time they left. By the end of the month, tabulating all this data to prepare it for payroll was a mammoth, often four-day task for the Youth Zone Business Admin Manager.”

“With a technology partner like UKG on board, it is much easier to manage the workforce and their expectations now, meaning that we have happier people for the long term.”
