This summer (2017), our Kronos timekeeping system is moving from an in-house server to an upgraded, secure web-based system. The upgrade will include new timeclocks, remote/mobile access to view your timecard and more flexibility with managing your time. Nursing and personal care clinical staff will also be piloting a new staff scheduling system which will be a module of the new Kronos system.

A fairly new concept in computing, the “cloud” refers to centralized computing, hosted off-site from a client’s location, to offer scalability and flexibility while lowering overall lifetime costs of the system due to multiple clients sharing hardware. The responsibility of the upgrades, hardware, and maintenance relating to the hosting of the system is on the vendor; not Masonic Villages. The Workday “cloud” is safe and secure. Workday undergoes several security audits each year, has numerous security certifications, and as of this date has never been subjected to a data breach.
