Everyone knows people work harder and better when they know they’re being watched or monitored. It’s simply human nature. However, once your company hits a certain size, it can be difficult keeping an eye on every one of your people. Fortunately, thanks to employee time clock software, you no longer need to be omnipresent to ensure you get the work you’re paying for everyday.
Back in the day, an employee time clock was actually a physical device that employees would insert their timecards into and then hit a button to have them imprinted. They would then leave their timecards behind, so management could review them for when employees came and went.
Since that time, technology has come a long way, to the point that such an archaic method is no longer the standard out there. Instead, you can rely on software that employees will use to enter their time in. This way, you don’t get the clutter that comes from time cards, you don’t need to waste time physically checking them all and you know no employee will sign in or out for another.
Best of all, you can use this type of software to track employees who don’t even work in your office. Perhaps, they work from home. With software you can keep an eye on them from a distance.
