The gift of time (and attendance)

43% of hourly workers admit exaggerating their hours. So, with almost half of your workforce taking you for a ride, what are you doing about it? The truth is you’re probably losing a pretty penny when it comes to employee time theft. That’s employees fudging their start time, slimming down their lunch break, and not even mentioning that early finish. If you’re in the pits of paper timesheets, you can add a heap of workload and human error to that to-do list. Let’s be real,…
