According to the article, gaming resorts could significantly reduce labor spend and improve operational efficiencies by employing a more holistic approach to managing their casino and hospitality employees - yet, none are realizing this potential. While resorts today currently use simple time management systems - often just spreadsheet or basic punch clocks, they could be driving significantly greater labor cost savings and improved operational efficiencies by utilizing enterprise Workforce Management solutions that incorporate elements of Time & Attendance, Scheduling, Labor Forecasting, Workforce Analytics and/or Employee Self-Service. The article further contends that these benefits could be realized without significant additional investments in software and hardware infrastructure and that ROIs could be achieved in very short time periods if done right.
The article provides actionable advice on what casinos could be doing and outlines the tangible and intangible benefits that could be achieved from doing so. In addition to pointing out areas of cost savings, the article also outlines how effective workforce management could greatly improve internal processes, reduce non-compliance issues, as well as reduce the day-to-day burdens of managing people faced by both front-line managers and HR staff.
"In an industry where labor costs are as high as 70%, modern Gaming Workforce Management solutions can reduce annual payroll costs by as much as 5%, improve compliance, reduce employee turnover, and improve customer service levels by ensuring that the properly licensed person is ready to serve your customers at the right table - all with an immediate ROI", noted Arshad Merali, the article's author and Managing Partner at EntryPoint Global. "For example, one of the most time consuming, error-prone processes in casinos is the management of toke pools. A well-configured Workforce Management solution can determine who should get what and automatically allocate the correct amount to their respective payroll."
Additional highlights of this article include:
- Minimal changes in accurately tracking and calculating employee time can translate into major cost savings that directly impact the bottom line
