Banks Can Leverage UltiPro to Increase Employee Productivity

By Jack Klott, Vice President of Human Resources, Independent Bank

Independent Bank has served communities in Michigan for more than 150 years and is currently the fourth-largest community bank headquartered in the state. In the banking industry, we are grappling with several emerging forces and trends, but optimizing employee productivity remains an ongoing, long-term objective. It is vital that we increase the efficiency of our employees’ time because human capital accounts for such a large portion of cost.

With UltiPro, we have found an HCM solution that helps improve our bank efficiency ratios by optimizing employee processes. The user experience with UltiPro is incredible – everything our employees need related to their HR information is immediately available in their UltiPro profile. They can see at a glance their job description, compensation, their dependents, and benefits.

In addition, we have launched UltiPro Time to deliver an effortless experience for time tracking. The solution empowers Independent Bank’s employees to quickly manage their time-related activities, enhancing overall productivity. And with UltiPro’s mobile app, we’re able to increase productivity even further by enabling employees to complete time-related tasks anywhere, at any time.

Because UltiPro delivers such high usability and efficiency, our employees can accomplish a variety of HR tasks without an added burden on their time.
