Position Control

A better way to organize your workforce for enhanced visibility and budgeting 

Maximize Resources and Visibility with Position Control

Position Control offers the solution behavioral health and human services organizations need to better organize their workforce. As the foundation of our HCM and payroll solution, Position Control uses positions to create the organizational structure, rather than employees. While the positions remain static, employees can be assigned to a position, moved to different positions, or split their time between positions. At the same time, position attributes stay coded to that position, eliminating needless data entry and allowing for the organizational structure to remain intact, even as employees move into, around, and out of these positions.

Better Visibility

Position Control allows you to see your entire workforce at a glance, including vacancies, filled positions, and the whole organizational structure for unsurpassed visibility into your operations.

Better Budgeting

With better visibility into your workforce operations, you’ll be able to budget more effectively. Positions must be approved to fill before posting to prevent overbudgeting, and daily lost revenue reports can help identify which open positions should be prioritized.

Better Workflows

With Position Control, the chain of command is never broken. Approvals and requests simply flow up to the next position level if there’s a vacancy, helping to avoid bottlenecks and broken workflows.

Streamline Your Organizational Structure

It might sound simple, but most organizations struggle to keep an accurate headcount. Position Control enables you to view your entire workforce, their contact info, position details, and more, all on one organizational chart. This interactive and actionable chart also allows managers and executives to perform actions on employees, review applicants for open positions, and simulate forecasts.

Assign Inheritable Attributes to Positions

With an employee-based system, position details and attributes need to be coded to each position every time a new employee comes on board. With Position Control, those days are over. Position details and attributes are coded to the position instead of the employee, so each person that fills that position will inherit those attributes automatically. Best of all? No more “rogue” or “orphaned” positions, because each new hire must be placed in an approved-to-fill position.

Remove Budgeting Blind Spots

Most budgeting issues are caused by blind spots in our systems and issues that we don’t see until they show up on our annual reports. Increasing workforce visibility is the first step to achieving budgeting compliance. With Position Control, you can build your organization from the ground up. This allows you to strategically allocate staff to the appropriate programs, cost centers, and funding sources – maximizing your budget and controlling costs without sacrificing service quality.
