Timesheets play a critical role in providing a clear record of how many hours your staff are working, to ensure that they are being paid for the hours they work while managing overtime and the wellness of your team. Many businesses still rely on paper based processes. Unfortunately, paper based timesheets often get lost and delayed and are more prone to human errors such as miscalculations, illegible handwriting or misremembered times and dates. This costs the business both time and productivity, and with delayed billing due to no supporting signed timesheets, staff are not getting paid on time.
As your business grows and your team expands, it can become difficult to keep track of each employee’s growth, productivity and hours they have worked manually. The Guardian presents a graph revealing that labour productivity grew at 1.1% over the last decade, recording its slowest growth in 60 years.
Outdated, repetitive processes like paper based timesheets and scheduling, play a major role in affecting staff engagement and productivity. When tasks become tedious, workers are at higher risk of fatigue and reduced alertness, which can result in errors that can jeopardise the business and their safety.
This is why more businesses are transitioning to automated payroll systems, using technology integrations to reduce admin tasks, boosting efficiency across the workforce.
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of digital timesheets.
