IMPORTANT Kronos Go-Live Update

The Arc Baltimore is in the process of transitioning from two different systems for HR/Timekeeping/Payroll/Scheduling to a singular system Kronos Workforce Dimensions. The new system is now live for all staff and supported individuals.

During the transition to the new Kronos system, staff will notice important changes in the work processes listed below.

All employees will have access to Kronos Workforce Dimensions.

Tele Punches: Due to some issues the phone number for Asher Telephony will be updated to 443-279-1401. Effective 3/04/20 all staff are asked to use the updated phone number.  

Asher Telephony can only be used to punch, once the phone number is dialed the system will request your employee ID # resulting in a punch. Punching will be the only capability available. For all other time inquiries staff will be able to log into the Kronos Site, or use the Kronos mobile app.

Accessing the new Site: Under staff portal click on Kronos WFD to access the new system.

Username: Your Username for the new Kronos system will be your current Employee ID #.
