WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands recently announced that The Salvation Army in Canada has selected its EmpCenter suite to standardize workforce management processes nationwide.
The Salvation Army is the largest non-governmental provider of social services in Canada that supports vulnerable people in 400 communities daily across Canada and more than 120 countries around the world. Its work in Canada is made possible by a dedicated staff of 10,000 employees assisted by nearly 150,000 volunteers. The diverse programs of The Salvation Army rely on the efficient deployment of staff and volunteers, and therefore present significant workforce management challenges.
The Salvation Army determined that WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter suite was uniquely capable of providing a solution that could be delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS) to minimize internal maintenance and support.
“Every improvement we make in reducing administrative hours and maximizing worker productivity helps us offer greater support to the people and communities we serve,” stated Josie Delpriore, Director of Employee Relations at The Salvation Army in Canada. “WorkForce Software becomes a valued partner in that mission by providing the technology and expertise to help us automate everything from employee work schedules to tracking volunteer hours, on a single technology platform.”
“The Salvation Army has an impressive history of transforming communities,” noted Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software, “yet they also contend with a variety of workforce management challenges. EmpCenter was designed to help large, decentralized organizations like theirs by managing their entire workforce within a single enterprise platform, simplifying intricate union and compliance requirements and providing more time to focus on their core mission. We look forward to helping The Salvation Army enhance its labour practices, and are proud to help them advance their transformative work.”
