UKG Handles Canadian Company’s Complex Pay Structure

Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG), a global provider of human capital management (HCM), payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management (WFM) solutions, announced that Mosaic Forest Management Corporation, a company engaged in sustainable harvesting on the coast of British Columbia, Canada, is using UKG Pro and UKG Ready to take control of a complicated payroll framework that has more than 200 pay-calculation rules within one pay group in Ready.

Mosaic provides a range of services from harvest planning to operations, marketing and sales, finance, and payroll. The payroll requires complex pay administration including scenarios where employees in the field can, on a single day, work in a variety of activities with different pay rates, that change further as a function of the number of hours worked, and other premiums. Prior to automated time tracking with UKG, most recordkeeping—including overtime, double time, shift premiums, and more—was completed manually.

“UKG provided one of the only fully integrated platforms with the functionality to handle multiple job rates and the complexity of our shift premium rates,” said Louise Bender, Director of People at Mosaic. “We were able to configure Ready to process our rules for different combinations of pay. We now have automated consistency across our organization and have access to real-time, meaningful data.”
