Easy, time-saving attendance tracking for on-the go managers.
You’re busy; let’s admit it. You’re in meetings, working on projects, or need to be out of the office for hours daily.
You have an employee Steve, who comes into work every Monday with a headache, a pair of sunglasses on and a couple days worth of stubble. If your employees need a sick day you just ask them to email you. When you’re the supervisor of multiple people, it can be hard to keep track of who is asking for sick days and when. You’re not keeping track of those days in any other way but through email, you probably wouldn’t notice that Steve asks for three consecutive Fridays off every month. However Software Techniques Inc’s employee tracking software can eliminate that issue. Not only is it allowing you to keep track of when your employees take leave, it also allows your employees to keep track of when they are taking days off. And, best of all, since it’s all online you can access it anywhere. You can even still accept request for leave days in your email, yet all information is still stored in the employee’s online file, even if you “misplace” the leave request.
It’s just about impossible to keep track of when and if your employees are showing up to work. It can be frustrating not only to you, but your employees when one particular worker is always coming in late, or taking sick days with no one to catch them. If you don’t already have an efficient system in place, tracking “repeat offenders” can cause problems; employees can begin to become unhappy with their coworker and with you as these repeat offenders slip through the cracks. By implementing a time and attendance software you can finally track your employee’s sick days and hours with ease making it possible to catch employees who have difficulty making it into work on time or who constantly take a days off.
If you’ve got a lot of part time employees, you may not notice that Lucy is always twenty minutes late to her shift. And if you’ve got an employee like Lucy who is always late, you can address the issue. That can put your mind to rest that your employees are getting in on time, and keep her co-workers happy as well.
Attendance and punctuality is a huge problem for HR employees to deal with.

Keeping on top of attendance makes your company run smoother. Put your mind at ease with employee tracking software, you’ve got enough on your mind as it is.

Tracking attendance can become a nightmare if an organization does not have an effective means to do so. Time management is a huge part of the human resources problem, and can quickly become a serious issue if the process is not streamlined. Creating schedules alone can be a very time consuming task for any manager. Throw in requests for paid time off, vacation, sick leave, and more, and the situation becomes very difficult indeed to manage. Doing so manually would be a full time job in and of itself even for a smaller company. Continue reading

The good news, however, is that more employees approaching retirement than ever are willing to stay on afterwards in a part time capacity. This willingness to stay on after retirement can be a life saver for some organizations whose talent pools are going to be badly drained. Continue reading
It may come as no surprise that the strength of a brand has more to do with a company than just its sales. A strong brand can also have a huge effect on the efforts of an organization to recruit and retain talent. In fact, a recent study has shown that 8 out of 10 job seekers would rather work for a highly regarded company at a lower salary, than would for a poorly regarded company at a higher salary. Anyone could tell you that job seekers prefer working for “cool” companies, but the results of the study seem to reinforce that notion even more. Continue reading
