Employee time tracking for seasonal employees
OnTheClock serves several seasonal companies and understands how important it is for them to properly track each employee’s time worked accurately. You may only need to use a time clock for a brief amount of time throughout the year and that is absolutely okay! Time tracking is helpful for all business owners in order to be successful in their journey of owning a small business.
These are just a few industries that use OnTheClock:
After all, you are running a seasonal business where time is not on your side, so make the best of it.
How an online time clock system can help seasonal companies save money
Even if your company only generates revenue 6 to 9 months out of the year, it is safe to say it is very important to track and save every dollar possible. By using an online time clock software, you will enjoy many features such as overtime and PTO tracking, a visual of who is on the jobsite via time clock GPS, and you will save many hours from manually calculating employee hours worked.
Avoid common issues that seasonal companies face:
Punch rounding - when an employer or employee rounds time worked to the nearest quarter of an hour. For example, if an employee works 8 hours and 7 minutes, the time may be rounded up to 8 hours and 15 minutes for easier time tracking when doing time cards and payroll.
Time theft - when employees get paid from claims that he or she worked a specified amount of time in which they did not work. This would include an employee coming into the office at 9:00 a.m. and writing on their timesheets that they arrived at 8:00 a.m. just so they can earn the additional hour of paid time.
Buddy punching - simply when a fellow employee punches in or out a co-worker who is not present or on the jobsite. This is a very common practice among remote-worksite employees.
Overtime tracking - each state has their own overtime rules and laws. The bottome line is that you must provide qualified employees with overtime pay for overtime hours that were worked. By not properly documenting this time data, your company can face serious legal consequences.
Businesses may face financial stress when they are paying employees for time that is not being worked. The same can be said when employers are not paying employees for time they did work.
Payroll will become higher than expected due to employees not having accurate time cards. But once an online employee time clock system is implemented into the establishment, time cards will be produced with 100% accuracy and employees will be paid accordingly.
Increase productivity, reduce payroll expenses, and have a peace of mind
As a business owner, you want what is best for your company and employees. When you receive increased productivity from your workers, your company is likely to increase profits. Additionally, money saved from reduced payroll expenses can be put towards other parts of the business that may need more focus. This could include advertising, purchasing new equipment, hiring additional employees, expanding technology, and much more.
Lastly, business owners are able to have a peace of mind, which can be priceless in itself. Easy access to a cloud-based time clock account informs you on who is on the clock, what time an employee punched the clock, and gain a better understanding on how much your payroll is going to cost for the pay period.
