Workforce management firm Bodet has developed a new employee attendance system incorporating interactive reporting which supports Continuing Professional Development (CPD).In a statement, the firm said CPD not only benefits employees, improving their career progression, but higher staff skills results in increased productivity and adds value to the organisation.Bodet's Kelio Visio X7 smart terminal allows employees to identify themselves by proximity card or, for greatest security, using the inbuilt biometric fingerprint sensor. When staff register, the terminal identifies them and time stamps the record which is then stored on the master database in real time.Employee records can be accessed by HR administrators, and these can have training notes, CPD plans and any relevant training documents, such as certification, attached to them to give full visibility of the developmental status of each member of staff. There is also the facility to add automated reminders within this system, so that if training is due for renewal or it is time for a staff review, HR administrators receive notification, and can in turn advise the relevant employee.With the relevant software modules, as employees clock in and out, the time period can be attributed to an activity, such as training or secondment. Managers can also use the messaging capabilities of the Kelio Visio X7 to communicate directly with staff to advise them of available training opportunities, or display company-wide bulletins for larger CPD events.Bodet's managing director, Richard Manby said, “The Kelio system is a completely new approach allowing greater communication between employees and HR management. As it is now easier to track professional development of staff, CPD can be regulated, resulting in a more engaged employee base across the widest range of industries.”
