Organizations have been using timesheets to efficiently monitor employees’ time, to effectively measure their productivity and to provide a means to track time for payroll, billing and project management. Timesheet has to be simple to use so that employees can utilize it efficiently. The timesheet is a great timesaver for administrators and an easy job for staff to complete even during downtime or on the go.
What are the current challenges you face with manual Timesheets?
- Scribbled and stained timesheets are wasted papers
- Timesheet handled manually wastes time and cost
- Inappropriate payment to an employee
- Can be misplaced or lost
- Queries and exceptions delay the timely input of information into payroll
- Inaccurate project costing due to lack of data on man-hours worked
A bigger challenge lies in the fact that employees are bad at filling out timesheets. They either forget, guess or delay. A survey from Harvard Business Review reveals facts on the way employees manage time
