Training on Time & Attendance Software

Every worker loves new technology, right? Not quite. The truth is, even in today’s business world, where certain segments seem dominated by news of an ‘always on’ culture, adopting and training on new technology can be daunting for plenty of employees.

Training Employees on New Time & Attendance Software

Perhaps you’ve recently added one or more people to your employee roster. What does it take to retain them? Often, it starts with how well they transition into your workplace.

One way to help them transition is to keep the training and learning curve as easy as possible. That includes helping them get acquainted with your time & attendance software. The same can also be said for retaining your existing employees, especially when you’re introducing them to a new time & attendance solution.

Below, we’ll outline a few things to keep in mind, whether you’re introducing new people to an existing time & attendance system, or a new system to existing workers.


The way you train can be key when it comes to helping workers get acquainted with your time & attendance software. The better they get to know your system, the less likely they are to make errors that could lead to time theft.

Train Globally and Personally

Every company looks for new ways to retain employees, and help workers engage with their work. Often, the path to success starts with how you help people come up to speed on various business systems, including time & attendance.

 

How easy is it to train on and learn your time & attendance software?

If your goal is to help new hires contribute right away, or to help existing employees embrace new technologies, what steps are you taking to achieve it?

When you introduce new people to existing systems, or new systems to current employees, some level of training will be required.

As your dedicated time & attendance solution, stratustime makes it easy for you to address a number of key questions and concerns that cover global as well as personal needs.

For instance:

One of the hallmarks of stratustime is its easy-to-use employee portal, which streamlines the learning curve for new and existing workers.

Ideally, all employees will have an easy and streamlined experience when it comes to punching in and out, tracking their breaks, logging their PTO and more. To help promote this, the stratustime experience includes an employee portal, through which employees can do the following:

At the same time, there will most likely be situations where a more personalized approach to learning the software will be the best course of action. When an employee learns a new feature that’s specific to the way they work, it can show them just how robust and vital the software is to their employee experience.

Here are two examples where a more personalized approach to training and features can be the best way forward:

 1. Workforce management features for managers and administrators

Managers and administrators can come up to speed quickly with stratustime, allowing them to utilize key features that help simplify the way they work.

2. Features that support remote and flex work options

 Workers can access stratustime, and manage time & attendance concerns, in several ways, including:

Having mobile access to stratustime can be especially vital if your professional environment encourages employees to bring and use their own devices, or when employees work remotely.

If employees work remotely, they might also need to log road miles.

While there are a lot of ways they can do so, stratustime’s Mileage Calculator for Expense Reimbursements feature lets them calculate miles within the same software they already use to track time. While this feature might not be important for all of your workers, it can be a key tool for them when they work from the road.

Whether you’re adding new workers to your employee roster, exploring a new time & attendance system, or both, make sure your solution is easy to learn, and watch employees succeed.


Workers and job seekers have a lot of options right now. Is your time & attendance solution right for them, and for the way your organization is scaling? Find out what it means to put stratustime on the clock.
