Made in Germany
A global leader in innovative fans and motors, ebm-papst has the ideal solution to virtually any air technology or drive engineering challenge, with products ranging from household appliances and automotive components through to industrial ventilation technology. Even though the family business now boasts 28 production facilities and some 15,000 staff worldwide, the genius of its engineering prowess still flows from its three central sites in Germany. ebm-papst opted for digital workforce management as part of a continuous process to optimize its resources.
The project was geared toward making production and HR processes even more efficient and flexible and getting staff actively involved in time and attendance management. The ATOSS Enterprise Solution has now been rolled out to 3,700 blue- and white-collar employees at the company’s Mulfingen site.
White-collar staff are also using the intuitive Staff Center to record their working time, correct times already entered and request holidays, ensuring that their working time account is always transparent. Automated workflows for holiday requests and corrections to time entries are now placing much less of an administrative burden on the workforce and management.
Meanwhile, planners are also using the ATOSS solution to schedule some 2,200 production staff, taking account of the applicable laws, collective agreements, working time accounts and qualifications right from the planning stage. Proactive warnings indicate potential rule breaches and training needs when qualifications are due to expire. The result is a legally watertight manufacturing process, less planning input and improved planning quality at the same time.
The next step will see the ATOSS solution introduced for around 3,000 staff in Hungary. This is truly workforce management across all borders.
