A recent article, 5 Timesheet Best Practices Your Small Business Should Implement by Curt Finch says that the right choice of time tracking software is one of the toughest issues many businesses face. Trying to be productive and compliant to some government regulations.
With so many available options, it can be difficult to determine the right software, the right methods and the best practices to implement company-wide.
Here are some tips for implementing time tracking software for your company.
Implement time tracking company-wide
When the leaders value and use time tracking themselves, and apply the same rule company-wide, it can be a powerful motivation for everyone involved.
Provide the necessary training
Making sure everyone understands the necessity of correct time tracking can change the way your employees respond to your new timesheet policies. If they don’t understand what is involved, it can lead to mistakes and lost information on timesheets.
Automate the process
Automating your processes will not only alleviate that data risk, but will also help keep you compliant. If you’re properly training your staff with the timesheet system, your company will be able to make the most out of it.
Move to hourly employees
Move all employees to hourly pay, where each party clearly understands what’s expected (on productivity and efficiency) and there’s far less room for one to take advantage of the other.
Record your time everyday
Make sure everyone in the company is recording their timesheet at least once daily to maintain good records and best practices.
To promote daily time record, make sure the process is not so complicated. Recording a timesheet should only take few minutes each day.
Following the basic rules listed above with proper implementation of the new systems will surely help you run the business smoothly and efficiently.
