Plan work schedules to improve business performance

A strategic approach to time tracking means planning and managing your employees’ time more effectively, so you can prioritize business goals and maximize staff productivity. 

Good time management ensures your team works more effectively, increasing the output of key deliverables for your business. Poor time management can significantly impact your team and the overall performance of your company.

What is time tracking software?

It enables both managers and human resources departments to track hours worked by their people and teams. It's also useful for companies who bill clients or customers by the hour as it allows for more precise invoicing.

We understand it can be tricky to keep an eye on your employees’ time tracking. In the modern workplace, you’re not dealing with staff simply clocking in and out at one centralized office space.

With the rise in flexible and remote working, you might have one or more satellite offices, or employees working in different time zones, and a mix of contracts to manage—along with freelance workers and external project teams.

This is where HR software for time tracking comes into play. Our web-based time clock software helps you securely track the hours and attendance of your employees from anywhere around the world. Meaning you have instant access to the data you need to make critical decisions about your business.

Why it’s important

You might think that introducing time clock systems or work scheduling tools is an added complexity that you don’t need. However, there are many benefits to having a complete overview of how your employees spend their time. Plus, being able to access key reports at any time means you can effectively strategize and make informed business decisions, leveraging real data into your planning.  

Time management systems allow you to take back control. It can highlight any systems or processes that need to be improved, resulting in increased productivity along with more accurate timeslips, expenses and billing.

Work smarter with the right time management software

Time management is an incredibly important skill at all levels of a business. With emails landing in your inbox every ten seconds, noisy offices, and endless additions to your calendar, it’s trickier than ever to get through your to-do list.

70% of professionals globally working from home at least once a week*, so it’s clear that the ability to manage your work schedule from any location is essential. Improving your employees’ time management skills within your business can not only increase productivity, but also provide you with critical insights into how time is best spent.

Focus on the most urgent tasks first. Then, methodically work through your list to ensure you’re spending time on key business priorities. Delegating tasks to co-workers can also save time.

Remove distractions

Working in an office comes with its distractions—coffee breaks, chatty co-workers, and so on—and so does working remotely or from home. Ensure you stay on target by utilizing time tracking software.

Take regular breaks and make use of vacation time
