How to Make It Easier for Employees to Track Time


Rikke Westvig

Time tracking is a great way for companies to get control over how the employees and managers are spending their time. It can help the companies to become more profitable by improving efficiency across the board. The right software for time tracking can work with payroll as well, providing an accurate system for payments and accounting, and it can ensure that everyone at the company is honest and accurate with their time. However, one of the big problems that companies have had when it comes to implementing the software is actually getting people to use it.

Some people have trouble with getting used to using the software. Those who are in creative fields may find this especially problematic, because the way they work is not always regimented into concrete tasks. However, they can still track what they are doing and working on; they just need to start. Other people may think that you are using the software to spy on them. That’s not the case either, and you need to be sure they are aware that you are using the software for their benefit as well as yours.
