Short-time work in retail – Made significantly easier with the new SEAK update. 1003 668 Workforce Management im Handel | SEAK Software GmbH
Short-time work in retail – Made significantly easier with the new SEAK update.

Switching to short-time work has become the preferred approach for many of our customers to protect the company and its employees in the Corona crisis. For HR departments, however, short-time work means a huge administrative burden (e.g. for time sheets), often associated with a lot of manual handling and recalculations that cost a lot of time.

To make time accounting and staff scheduling in retail easier even with short-time work and to significantly relieve employees, we mobilised all our resources and developed an unscheduled SEAK update. This SEAK update “Short-time work” contains the following new functions, among others:

  • Automated calculation of daily credits for short-time work compensation
  • An overview of the developments and any overspending of the available time accounts already in the current month and as predicted for the end of the month
  • Assessment for reporting short-time compensation and sick hours to the Employment Agency
  • Export of hours via Excel (if the “Excel interface” module is available)
  • Data transfers via an interface to wage/salary is possible ( if the »interface Lo/Ge« module is available).
  • Display of the available monthly short-time work budget for planning purposes
  • Easier planning – Without queries about short-time work. (The security query “Plan despite existing absence” does not appear for short-time work. This makes daily processing easier).
  • It is possible to differentiate between the dates when switching from the previous manual billing system to the new automated billing system.
