Are your staff filling in their timesheets accurately?
It is important to check that your staff have completed their timesheets, but it is also important to check that your staff have completed their timesheets accurately. There are three main reasons for this:
1. Staff Management: Accurate timesheets allow managers to know exactly what their staff have been working on and for how long. Where staff are taking longer than expected on certain activities, training requirements can be identified in order to improve staff efficiency.
2. Reporting: With time data recorded correctly, the management can generate reports and be confident that the information presented to them is reliable. This information could be used for profitability analysis, job costing, sales invoicing, monitoring staff utilisation and other business critical processes.
3. Correct payroll information: It is important to check the amount of standard and overtime hours completed, to ensure overtime isn’t being paid where it isn’t due and similarly, that it is paid where it is due. Using timesheet approval gives you a quick overview of the figures before the payroll is completed, allowing oddities to be identified.
Using a combination of approval and PROMPT, Tempora provides the ability for managers enforce completion and to approve timesheets. This means that a manager can check their staff members’ timesheets and approve their time data, or reject their timesheet so that corrections can be made.
Allow your managers to verify the accuracy of their staff members’ timesheets to ensure that their time records are useable for making informed business decisions – sign up for a free Tempora trial today.
