reduce labor costs Pottstown

Even though Workforce Management Suite is very affordable, some employers still aren’t convinced that it’s worth it and hang onto pen and paper time and attendance systems. Today’s post is addressed to employers who are using manual Workforce Management procedures because they don’t believe that investing in an automated system will yield a considerable ROI.

Here are 3 important ways Workforce Management Suite helps companies limit labor costs:

Employee Time Theft

If you haven’t caught any of your associates fudging on their time cards—it’s only a matter of time (pun definitely intended). In a survey of over 500 retail and service industry personnel, over 30 percent admitted to deliberate time theft.1 The two types they indicated specifically are buddy punching and recording erroneous start and end times.

Buddy punching, entering erroneous start times, and early punch-ins and late punch-outs result in an average of 4.5 fraudulent hours per week, per employee. For one staff member earning $10 per hour, that can be a loss of $45 per week.

Reduce Administrative Costs

With old school manual timekeeping systems, your managers spend tedious hours troubleshooting timesheet inaccuracies and then manually slinging the data into the payroll system. When your HR staff can process payroll in minutes, they are free to work on organization initiatives that have a bigger payoff. Overtime policing can also be time-consuming, which leads us to number 3:

Minimize Expensive Overtime

Companies that mismanage overtime for hourly team members can really take a financial hit. Manual time and attendance systems don’t have built-in warnings to notify managers when employees are approaching or have exceeded their authorized hours. The larger your company, the more unplanned overtime costs you. Workforce Management Suite customizable overtime warnings are one of the most popular features in our system.

Bottom line?

Workforce Management Suite will swiftly pay for itself and continue to save on labor outlays every single payroll!
