Automated T&A increases workplace happiness

SMART Access & Identity 2023 Access Control & Identity Management

In today’s challenging economy, we each must maintain a job in order to earn the money required to live. However, we can easily become unhappy with our jobs if we encounter frustrations in our work environment.

Today’s most successful companies have learned the importance of maintaining a positive, fun and inspirational work environment. When employees find joy in their jobs, employers enjoy enormous benefits, too. People who feel empowered and in control at their workplace tend to be more creative and productive, thereby increasing worker retention and making it far easier for employers to recruit new hires.

How can time & attendance empower the employee?

Efficient time and attendance services can help mitigate clerical errors that cause employees to feel unhappy or dissatisfied with their jobs, while empowering them at the same time.

Another convenient time and attendance service lets employees view the schedule for an entire department. This can be very useful for employees to swap shifts. Also, when requesting time off, viewing the department schedule helps employees understand how their decision will affect the team. Giving employees this option is a great way to make them feel respected and appreciated.

There are also services that allow employees to manage their own personal information, such as a change of address or new educational achievements. This can give employees a sense of privacy and control over their personal details, and encourage them to keep their information up to date, while helping employers stay compliant with recordkeeping requirements.

In addition, some time and attendance systems allow workers to punch in and out remotely. A critical feature in our post-pandemic world where so many workers now work from home, this service gives remote employees access to their logged hours and the ability to control their schedule more freely while still being productive. While this isn’t possible for all industries, remote-working employees may experience an increase in efficiency of up to 47% – especially as time goes on and we get better at it.

A good time and attendance system is a crucial element for a functional business. It gives employees multiple ways to clock in and out and manage their paid time-off, and it integrates directly with a payroll service for ultimate convenience. But most importantly of all, time and attendance services can empower employees and help to create and maintain a healthy, positive and productive workplace. Suprema’s time and attendance solution, BioStar 2, makes all of this possible, and more.
