The key to complying with the 40-hour law and increasing your team’s productivity

Escrito por: Diego Silva, Gerente de Proyectos en Moveapps.

The new 40-hour law in Chile is now a reality, which establishes a reduction in the workweek from 45 to 40 hours presenting a challenge for many companies in the country, especially those with a large number of employees and high production. However, technology can be a great ally in this adaptation process.

The implementation of technology in human resources management can help companies optimize their processes and maximize efficiency, which can be particularly important when it comes to complying with the new law. At Moveapps, we have prepared a summary of some ways in which technology can help companies in this new scenario.

Time Management:

Technology can be used for employee time management, including monitoring work time, scheduling, and task assignment. This allows for greater efficiency in managing employees’ time, which can help reduce non-productive time and increase productivity.

Technology can also be used to improve communication and collaboration within your company. Online communication tools, such as UNIVO, can facilitate communication among your employees, which translates into improved efficiency and coordination in the workplace.


Automating business processes can help companies save time and reduce the need for manual labor. For example, automating payroll can reduce the time spent on managing wages and hours worked, which can be particularly important when it comes to complying with the new 40-hour law.

Time and Attendance Management Systems:

These systems can help companies monitor their employees’ work time and ensure compliance with the 40-hour workweek established by the law. They can also help employees accurately record their hours worked and maintain a record of their work time.
