Are you paying for hours not worked?

SHARE

Picture this: Your employees are paid to work 7:30 am- 16:00 pm. Dave, however, is starting at 8:00 am and finishing at 15:30 pm every day. Yet, when he submits his weekly timesheets, they show normal start and finish times. Could you identify when this is happening?

Our customers frequently tell us that this is an issue.

When manual timesheets are used to submit hours worked by staff, how do you know they’re accurate and more importantly, what can you do about it if they’re not? Essentially, you could be giving money away unnecessarily.

For example, you have 10 drivers, each of which is adding, on average, 15 minutes extra time a day that they didn’t work. Therefore, over the course of a week you could be paying 12.5 hours of overtime that isn’t due.

How much is that worth to your business?

A simple solution to this would be to install reliable Fleet tracking software and here’s why:

  • Firstly, because it helps to reduce or eliminate concerns over accuracy of manual timesheets.
  • Secondly, you’ll know when your vehicles started and stopped.
  • Last, but certainly not least, you can minimise needlessly digging into your company’s bottom line.

By looking at the bigger picture, you could decrease your level of financial risk and help to reduce the admin involved with timesheets, ultimately enabling you to invest that time back into the business.
