Tracking Time for Remote Workers
The employment landscape has changed drastically over recent years. More and more people are working from home than ever before. There are over 100 million remote professional workers in the USA alone! The conservative estimate also suggested that this trend is on the rise. The importance of time tracking for remote workers has never been more critical than now. A 2015 report by the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicted that by 2020, 75% of the workforce in the US would be comprised of remote workers. The trend in Europe is mirroring the situation in the USA.
The remote work phenomenon is already commonplace with some businesses, while for others the concept is relatively new. Cloud-based solutions have become more prevalent making it far easier to connect with colleagues and employees in real time. Whether located across the city or in another part of the world, remote work tracing has become part and parcel of today’s work environment. Innovations in broadband and wireless technology are continuing to make mobile collaboration speedier and much more reliable than ever before. IDC research has also forecast that the manufacturing, construction, retail and healthcare sectors are already seeing massive growth rates among remote workers.
Tools that are available allow managers and their team members to keep a close eye on all the essential business operations that are related to timesheets, as well as wage and hour compliance issues. Providing a clear route for remote workers to be able to track their time has now become an essential function in today’s businesses. Meanwhile, employers need to be able to track their employees’ time and attendance regularly, no matter where they are working from.
Remote employee time tracking
Integrated time tracking software is the answer to all remote worker challenges. Payroll is already complicated enough for many organisations, add remote workers to the mix, and it could be unmanageable. It needs to have integrated time and attendance solutions along with payroll processing and beyond. The system could include clocking in and out with a specially designed time clock. Perhaps a central kiosk or a POS system on a computer. Or maybe remotely via PC, the laptop, a tablet, smartphone or even dial-in system. You can opt to receive notifications when employees are absent from work or late.
There is an option to use Geotracking features which can verify where or when employees actually clock in. When those employees work remotely, then the challenges may seem daunting. We can show you exactly how to implement a software solution that puts you on the clock for your employees, colleagues and yourself!
