With over 50 branches nationwide, it entails a lot of supervision by their HR department. Expanding a business would need a lot of people. With this concern, their HR department will need a system to help them. “Lahat ng time naming nauubos sa payroll. Wala na kaming time to generate reports and sa other strategic aspects ng HR.” as explained by Ms. Alma Carriedo, HR manager of World Balance. All the HR processes in World Balance are done manually from payroll up to leave management. One of the goal of the companies would be to have paperless transactions and a company who is adapting to the trend of technology. With this concern in mind, they looked for an HRIS system who will help them achieve this. As they have arrived with the decision of getting Workwise with the help of Direc business, an authorized reseller of Workwise, they are expecting a lot of things. One of it would be to have a faster payroll process. Before they used to process their payroll for a week, with the help of workwise they expect to process it for 2 days only. Apart from payroll, they want to have a systematic and a more efficient process in timekeeping. For generation of payslips and leave management, they expect to have a more transparent process for the benefit of their employees.

When asked about the expectations of their employees with Workwise, Ms. Carriedo quoted, “They are excited because they can access it in their smartphones na anytime and anywhere. Part of it is easier application of sick leaves and vacation leaves. Since Workwise is like Facebook, better communication within the company because of the bulletin feature and chat facility. “ To empower their employees, is to empower the whole company as well.
