As part of General Motors' overall strategy to standardize systems across GM's global operations, GM planned to implement a new timekeeping information system throughout GM plants in Canada. A common timekeeping system could increase plant efficiency, standardize reporting for headquarters, and facilitate productivity benchmarking across North America. Existing GM Canada timekeeping practices differed considerably within Canada and with U.S. operations, however, and Canadian resistance was threatening system implementation.
