One of the issues with paper timesheets is that many times they are inaccurate. Employees will often forget to track time that takes place outside of normal working hours, preventing you from paying legitimate billable hours. In other situations, employees may embellish their timesheets. An extra ten minutes a day may not seem like much, but it adds up. The time spent completing timesheets also takes time away from an employee to accomplish important tasks. A great solution to these issues is utilizing an effective time tracking software.
Time Tracking Software Makes Companies Efficient
Your goal, as an HR administrator, is to
empower individual employees to perform, but also to weigh in on decisions that
make the workforce stronger. Providing workers with a quick and easy way to track
their time is something that allows you to evaluate that workforce with little
to no interruption in their productivity.
Research shows that how frequently employees must
log their time has an impact on its accuracy. For instance, workers who log
their time on a daily basis are found to be more accurate than workers who do
so at the end of a week, month or pay period.
Depending on how you capture workers’ time and
their work schedules, daily logs may be unrealistic. With time tracking
software, you can efficiently measure when workers clock in and out, no matter
what hours or days they work. This information can provide real-time insights
into your workforce and minimize the time needed for data entry.
Consequences of Incorrect Time Tracking
If an employee worked hours that were not paid
by the employer, such as overtime due to incorrect time tracking, then the
employee can file a wage complaint with their state employment agency. Wage
complaints will sometimes result in an investigation by the employment agency
which may lead to a lawsuit or loss of the employers business license, as well
as fines and penalties.
