We hear frequently in daily life that “time is money.” For employers, no statement could be more true than when it comes to their staff’s time and productivity. In short, every minute on the clock translates to employee wages. With employee wages often being an employer’s greatest expense, finding ways to control and minimize that cost should be a high priority.
To help in that initiative, in August we’re introducing a new, web-based Workforce Management Clock with smart features to further reduce the cost of employee labor while also reducing the administrative time required by supervisors and HR to report on employee time.
Save on labor by tracking employee breaks and meals
One of the most common sources of lost productivity and overpaid wages is employee breaks and meals. Simply stated, without a technology in place to accurately track these breaks, employers almost always end up overpaying, leading to increased wages, overtime or lost productivity. This can also lead to additional administration and editing time. With our new web-based Workforce Management Clock, this problem is solved.
What many employers don’t realize is just how much they are overpaying in wages due to poor break and meal tracking. This is especially true when employers are not using any sort of web-based time tracking software.
Often, employees are not asked to record breaks simply because it’s not convenient. In other cases, it can be problematic to sort out paid and unpaid time related to a break. Why not simplify this task with break keys that will track and manage those minutes automatically?
Simplify Department Transfer
When employees switch between departments throughout the work day, it often results in increased administration for supervisors or confusion at the clock for employees. Department changes often have important pay implications. They generally involve new pay rates, shift differentials or other pay considerations. With our new dedicated “Transfer” key, moving between departments, job codes or other pay categories is not only more intuitive for the employee, but also saves time for the supervisor and HR in sorting out the pay details.
