The process of issuing W-2 forms to employees can be laborious and demanding in terms of resources for organizations, particularly when utilizing conventional paper-based approaches. On the contrary, CloudApper AI TimeClock provides UKG clients with a modern and effective resolution by means of its innovative self-service functionality. This article examines the ways in which CloudApper enables clients of UKG to electronically distribute W-2 forms to their employees, thereby improving convenience, security, and overall employee satisfaction.

The Challenge of Traditional W-2 Distribution

The conventional process for distributing W-2 forms entails the printing, folding, filing, and mailing of physical copies to employees. This methodology is rife with inefficiencies:

Time-consuming: Manual printing, addressing, and mailing are labor-intensive, diverting HR resources from strategic tasks.

Costly: Printing, paper, postage, and mailing fees add up, especially for large workforces.

Prone to Errors: Manual processes increase the risk of missing deliveries, incorrect addresses, and lost documents.

Environmentally unfriendly: Paper consumption and related waste contribute to environmental concerns.

W-2 Distribution Through Self-Service

CloudApper AI TimeClock seamlessly integrates with UKG systems, enabling a transformative approach to W-2 distribution through its self-service feature. This feature offers two intuitive options for employees to access their W-2s electronically:

  1. Click-to-Request: Employees can simply click a dedicated button on the CloudApper AI TimeClock tablet interface to request their W-2 electronically. This triggers an automated notification to the HR department or manager for approval. Once approved, the W-2 is securely delivered to the employee’s registered email address.
  2. Conversational AI Assistant: Employees can engage in a natural language conversation with CloudApper’s AI assistant to request their W-2. The AI assistant guides them through the process, verifies their identity, and initiates the secure delivery of the W-2 via email.
