At UMMS, your time is respected, your expertise is valued and your work is acknowledged. An important part of our unified work across UMMS is creating a transparent and standardized system for employee scheduling, productivity and pay programs. Our goal is to eliminate unnecessary work and increase efficiencies, while building a more collaborative work environment. To achieve this, we are moving to one system, called Kronos, for managing all employees’ job roles and titles, scheduling, and compensation. Find all the answers to your questions about this transition here, including FAQs, training information, and more.
Starting this fall, all UMMS employees will have access to a single, standardized productivity system that will provide a consistent way to set targets and measure progress toward goals. This process will create clear expectations between managers and employees–no matter where you work within the System–and create efficiencies that can be reinvested in our workforce and in our patient care.
Knowing exactly what your job title means and understanding what is expected of you is central to a fulfilling work experience. With our new Time & Attendance system, you’ll know exactly what you’re paid–and why. Clearly defined job titles, base pay rates, pay differentials and paid time off policies will help all of our employees work with confidence anywhere within UMMS, and importantly, understand the path for advancement.
Our work at UMMS is regularly rewarding, sometimes challenging and always worthwhile. With our employees’ wellbeing and our patients’ safety top of mind, we are prioritizing a positive work-life environment across our System. More effective staffing strategies have been shown to improve patient care; reduce preventable readmissions, infection rates and fall rates; minimize the need for overtime; and increase our employees engagement with their work. This new process will standardize and optimize scheduling based on patient need and employee satisfaction, and let you, the employee, have more control over your schedule.
