How Executives Use Time and Attendance
- nettime solutions staff
Many organizations have specific goals in mind when considering a time and attendance system.
• Increase in employee productivity
• Improve compliance with applicable wage and hour requirements
• Control payroll and associated costs
• Expedite billing
Employee activities can drive operational efficiency as well as cost. In order to see what’s happening, executives need to be able to see how departments are spending their time and whether or not those activities are in line with the company goals.
Unfortunately, you don’t know what you can’t see and obstacles can only be addressed if they are visible. Because payroll usually has the biggest budget, often 50-75 percent of an organization’s cost, taking a passive approach to managing it isn’t the best way to operate your organization.
A comprehensive workforce management system can provide your executives with the operational details they need – whenever, wherever, in real-time.
The most common areas executives focus on for an effective time and attendance system are:
- Automated paid time off requests and rules
- Access to time off balances
- Ability to request a change to a timesheet
- Ability to request approval for a missing clock-in/out
- Email and text message alerts
- Training history and expiration notifications
- Employee schedule, job schedules, and open positions
- Online payroll check access, eliminating mailing direct deposit advance notices
