Can You Reduce Your Overhead?
To ensure profitability, business owners need to control expenses in every aspect of their operations. Many owners of small and mid-size businesses have ruled out purchasing a third-party time and attendance or scheduling system because they think they can’t afford it.
These owners are still using the manual systems they have always used. These include paper timecards, Excel spreadsheets, old-school punch clocks, and shift schedules written on dry erase boards in the break room. When an employee needs to trade a shift, it triggers numerous texts and phone calls between managers and employees. These owners probably realize that it’s not the best system, but at least it’s free, right?
Perhaps you are one of these business owners. If so, thanks for visiting our blog. (We appreciate you visiting our blog even if you are not a business owner!) The purpose of today’s article is to explain that by spending just a little money each month, you can save an extensive amount on labor, which is probably your biggest expense.
First off, let’s think about three ways you may be losing money each pay period. Keep in mind that this is not an all-inclusive list.
1. Paying Employees When They Are Not Working
Manual timekeeping processes are subject to errors. Employees often record their official starting time even when arriving late and do the opposite when leaving early. Ditto for breaks. Even your most trusted associate probably doesn’t err on your side when calculating hours from memory days after the fact. Another expensive trouble is buddy punching which is potentially more costly.
2. Failing to Limit Overtime Due to Avoidable Scheduling Confusion
Unplanned overtime negatively influences the bottom line as well as employee morale.
3. Scrambling to Cover Shifts
If your managers don’t have a simple way to adapt to last-minute schedule changes, they waste time tracking down employees to cover shifts. This decreases productivity and frustrates team members.
