From stadiums to nursing homes to construction sites, when you manage a large hourly workforce, your employees are your biggest asset to your business. So when it comes to time and attendance, you want a system that puts your employees first. After all, time and attendance systems were designed to track employees: whether it be their schedules, hours worked, PTO, tasks completed, on-the-job injuries or location. However, not all time and attendance systems offer the tools to increase employee engagement and lead to higher employee satisfaction.
3 key features of an employee-centered time and attendance system:
Down to the Minute Time Tracking and Overtime Calculations
When your employees contribute to the success of your business, you want to be certain you are paying them accurately. Implementing a time and attendance system that tracks all hours worked and accounts for overtime and pay rules, shows your employees that their hard work matters and gives them peace of mind that they will be paid for every minute of their time.
Almost 90% of American adults have mobile phones1. And that number doesn’t even include tablets and other wireless devices. We live in a mobile world, and when you manage a distributed workforce, not all of your employees have access to a desktop. Implementing a time and attendance solution that allows employees to clock in, clock out, view schedules or request PTO from their cell phones helps employees feel connected and in control, even when they are miles away.
Employee Points System
In order to keep engagement high, it is important that you recognize employees for good behavior and reward them for their accomplishments. A time and attendance system with an employee points module can help you do just that. Using an employee points module, you can assign positive or negative points when an employee punches in on time or late, takes a meal break or punches out early or as scheduled. You can even assign points to non-attendance related activities. When a specified threshold is reached, you can send a nice message to the employee or notify the manager to reach out.
