Posted on October 20th, 2016 in PC Tracking Software | Comments Off on Why You Need Tracking Work Attendance
Tracking your employee’s attendance is important to your company’s bottom line. Attendance is defined, quite simply, as showing up for work, but how can you track it? By implementing well-defined policies and a tracking system.
Management and human resources departments will find that having an effective attendance policy in place creates a better work environment because employees know exactly what is expected of them.
What is Workplace Attendance?
Attendance is the act or fact of attending (being present at) work. Attendance is also used to define the number of persons present on a particular day at work.
Attendance is also referred to as ‘ present at work’ or ‘presenteeism.’
For example, an HR department may make notes like these :
Rob had a wonderful work attendance record; he rarely missed a day from work.
The attendance on first shift averaged only 75% on Mondays while employees recovered from their weekend fun.
What is an Attendance Policy?
An attendance policy provides the guidelines and expectations for employee attendance at work as defined, written, disseminated, and implemented by an organization.
Attendance policies exist most frequently for hourly or non-exempt employees for whom an organization must generally track hours.
Time at work record keeping is required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that governs the payment of overtime.
Additionally, employees for whom attendance is tracked often perform jobs that are interdependent on other employees being in attendance. Such jobs include production line work in a manufacturing facility.
An attendance policy is sometimes used interchangeably with an absenteeism policy. My view is that an attendance policy is much more narrowly defined and limited to attendance, as opposed to absenteeism policies which address absenteeism management issues and more.
So now we can see the importance of the attendance for both company and employee. So it is necessary to track it, for the better management of company, and employee work efficiency improvement.
However, for some employees, they don’t like to use traditional fingerprint reader time attendance machine, and some times may waste time if too many people use one machines. For company, it is very annoying to spend money on it and arrange a post to collect and analysis the data.
So the iMonitor WorkAuditor may help you, which is a time tracking software, actually more than a employee management software . It will tracking computer start up, power off, log in and log out, then analysis those data and export as employee’s clock-in and clock-out information, which means the attendance information will record automatically.
Further more, WorkAuditor can track all computer and internet activities of employees. As the supervisor, you can see what website, application the employee visited and used, how long time they spent on that, even more, you can block those websites or applications to make employees focus on their work. And as a employee management software, WorkAuditor can also help you to monitor the employees working time, idle time, rest time.
