"ADP's Workforce Now Time & Attendance solution is designed to make it easier for companies to comply with labor laws and regulations in Puerto Rico, and in less than 60 days after launching, we're seeing strong demand across all market segments throughout the island," said Anabis Acevedo, Vice President, Caribbean Region Sales at ADP.  "Organizations increasingly strive to streamline payroll processes as a way to reduce costs and errors, improve compliance with labor regulations such as flexitime and meal penalties, and increase employee access to timely and accurate data."With the introduction of ADP Workforce Now Time & Attendance in Puerto Rico, organizations now have a single partner for all their human capital management needs.  The Workforce Now platform is a single, integrated human capital management solution for HR, benefits, payroll, talent management, and time and attendance.  Introduced in the United States just two years ago, more than 20,000 organizations have already selected this solution to help them manage their employees.  One of ADP's clients using this solution is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico, a non-profit that has provided hope and opportunities to children in Puerto Rico for more than 40 years and is an offshoot of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America."One of the key benefits that attracted us to ADP's Workforce Now Time & Attendance solution is its ability to automatically track daily overtime if staff members need to work more than eight hours, and weekly after they work more than 40 hours," said Samar H.
