Want to lower labor costs?

WorkforceHub is Swipeclock’s all-in-one HR system tailored to small business. Even though WorkforceHub is very affordable, some employers still aren’t convinced that it’s worth it. They hang onto pen and paper time and attendance systems even though there are far better ways. This post is for employers who are using manual workforce management procedures because they don’t believe that investing in an automated system will yield meaningful ROI.

Here are 3 important ways WorkforceHub helps organizations rein in labor expenses:

Reduce Employee Time Theft

If you haven’t caught any of your employees fudging on their timecards—it’s only a matter of time (pun definitely intended). In a survey of over 500 retail and service industry personnel, over 30 percent admitted to time theft.1 The two types they referred to specifically are buddy punching and recording erroneous start and end times.

Buddy punching, recording incorrect start times, and early punch-ins and late punch-outs result in an average of 4.5 fraudulent hours per week, per employee. For one worker working at $10 per hour, that can be a loss of $45 per week.

Decrease Administrative Costs

With pen and paper timecards, your managers spend tedious hours troubleshooting timesheet inaccuracies and then manually inputing the data into the payroll system. When your HR staff can complete payroll in minutes, they are free to work on organization initiatives that have a bigger payoff. Overtime policing can also be time-consuming, which leads us to number 3:

Control Costly Overtime

Companies that mismanage overtime for hourly team members can really take a financial hit. Pen and paper timekeeping systems don’t have built-in warnings to notify supervisors when employees are approaching or have exceeded their authorized hours. The larger your organization, the more unexpected overtime costs you. WorkforceHub customizable overtime warnings are one of the most popular features in our system.

Bottom line?

WorkforceHub will quickly pay for itself and continue to save on labor costs every single payroll!
