In recent years, the world of work has changed rapidly. New technologies, changing values and increasing digitalisation have led to a paradigm shift. Traditional work structures are being replaced by a new way of working known as "New Work". This new normal has implications for companies, workers, society as a whole and legislators.
A decisive factor for the success of New Work is digitalisation. Modern technologies play a central role in this as they overcome spatial and temporal barriers. Virtual teamwork, cloud-based tools and online communication platforms facilitate collaboration across company boundaries and promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas. Secure and reliable software solutions such as the ZEUS® Workforce Management System from ISGUS form a solid foundation for the implementation of New Work. Staff Scheduling,Time and Attendance and resource optimisation can be efficiently implemented with it. But legal requirements also play a role in New Work.
How digitalisation is changing our working world
The modern world has been revolutionised by digitalisation, which shapes almost every aspect of our lives. It has fundamentally changed the way we communicate, work, shop and receive information. Thanks to the spread of smartphones and internet access, the digital world has become ubiquitous. Businesses are increasingly turning to digital technologies to work more efficiently and expand their reach. However, there are also challenges in the area of data protection and cyber security. Legislators and software providers have a responsibility to protect individuals and companies, to detect dangers at an early stage and to develop quick and efficient solutions. In this context, ZEUS® Workforce Management plays a significant role. It is based on the highest security level and is closely linked to the current legal requirements. An example of this is the recently adopted European Court of Justice (ECJ) law on the recording of working time.
ECJ law on the recording of working time - a milestone for workers' rights
Last year, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) handed down a landmark ruling on the recording of working time that will have a major impact on workers' rights in the European Union. The court confirmed that employers are obliged to set up a system that accurately records the daily working time of their employees. The ECJ ruling should also help to create fair conditions of competition between companies. Employers who violate the law on the recording of working time must expect sanctions. Workers' organisations and trade unions welcome the ruling as a significant step towards strengthening the labour market.
Efficient software solutions for the modern working world
An effective software solution is indispensable for a modern working world. This is especially true for systematic time management such as ZEUS® Time and Attendance and ZEUS® Staff Scheduling. These solutions enable companies to flexibly monitor and document working hours, which is essential in terms of legal requirements. One of the most important benefits is the ability to show overtime and ensure that employees are paid appropriately and that they have a healthy work-life balance. With the ZEUS® mobile app and ZEUS® SaaS - cloud solutions modules, these benefits are enhanced. The mobile app allows employees to conveniently record their working hours while on the move, while the cloud solutions provide access to the data from anywhere. Ongoing digitalisation is an unstoppable process that will continue to shape our society. Companies that rely on powerful software solutions like ZEUS® are well equipped to meet the challenges of the modern working world.
