TIME & ATTENDANCE
Managing and Empowering Staff
Your employees are one of the most valuable assets your organisation will have. Managing and empowering them, and providing them with a sense of well-being while they work for you improves efficiencies and staff retention. Utilising the right workforce management or time & attendance solution either on its’ own or as part of a larger Human Capital Management (HCM) platform can bring a wealth of benefits to you, your company and your employees alike.
REMOVES THE BURDEN OF MANUAL TIMEKEEPING AND IMPROVES ACCURACY
A true web-based solution which is accessible from any internet enabled device, this coupled with smart data collection methods including bio-metric terminals (finger, hand and facial recognition), ensures that every site and every employee has an appropriate method of registering attendance with all data collected in real time and 100% accurate using a common server time that cannot be altered.
COST SAVINGS ON ‘TIME ABUSE’
On average using manual time sheets or just trust produces inaccuracies, whether deliberate or otherwise – even just 5 mins per day per worker at minimum wage (for 100 employees) equates to a loss of around £21,000 per year!
PREVENT ‘BUDDY PUNCHING’ AND ‘GHOST’ WORKERS
The art of ‘buddy punching’ is where one worker clocks in for another (the term coming form the old punch card systems that were used mainly in factories years ago). Although technology has moved on, buddy punching continues in all types of business. Likewise when there is a large number of temporary or agency workers, the chances of ‘ghost workers’ where someone else takes on that identity can cost an organisation considerably. Using the right workforce management system, with the right clocking method ensures that these two costly situations are ruled out. For the employees, it helps maintain high morale as it shows that you want to protect those that work conscientiously by being fair to them.
EMPOWER EMPLOYEES THROUGH SELF SERVICE
Enable employees to manage requests for leave or absence, overtime or shift change requests and also have immediate access to view their own attendance records and also holiday entitlements, without having to ask (and most likely wait) HR. For flextime and flexible working hours employees can review and manage where they are against their targeted hours – again providing empowerment and trust to your hard working workers.
IMPROVE STAFF PLANNING
Using the system to help you ‘roster’ your staff in the most efficient way, ensuring that you allow for busy times or be able to reallocate workers to other tasks / departments in real time.
SMOOTHLY ENABLE FLEXIBLE WORKING, FLEXTIME AND HOME WORKING
Providing the ability for staff to work remotely, or from home, easily and flexibly.
REAL TIME DATA ON YOUR WORKFORCE 24/7 X 365
A true 24/7 x 365 solution ensures that your workforce are always able to register in and out of work (wherever that is), and you have real time data at your fingertips to help make decisions on how you deploy your labour assets the most effectively.
KEEP TRACK ON YOUR CONTRACTORS AND SERVICE PARTNERS
The world of work is constantly changing - gone are the days of 9 to 5, replaced by flexible and remote working. All businesses now operate in a highly competitive market with tight margins and where the customer is king. The need to ensure contract compliance, validate service delivery and automate key processes has never been higher. A smart workforce management will enable you to manage your contractors and service partners, validate time based invoices and ensure that lone-working compliance is maintained.
