In little more than one year in the HR department at Omicron Canada, Tyler Cheyne reduced late and inaccurate timesheet submissions by 75 per cent. He took charge of the end-user portion of the company’s Timesheet software and redesigned the employee orientation for the system.

“The biggest issue was people’s comfort with the system. There are certain levels of ability that people have with learning a new system and (it’s about) catering to the different levels of need and helping those who may need a bit more assistance,” said Cheyne, HR advisor at the 200-employee company based in Vancouver.

Cheyne’s efforts helped him earn this year’s Rising Star Award from the British Columbia Human Resources Management Association (BC HRMA), presented at its annual conference in Vancouver in late April.
