Managing workers across multiple locations

Now the world has changed forever on how employees work and where employees work it is more important than ever to have systems that will assist you to onboard employees, collect start and finish times, and complete payroll.

These key areas can cost you some to hundreds of hours in admin with no system in place.

  • Onboarding Employees remotely
  • Collecting start and finish times against scheduled start and finish times
  • Automating payroll processing

Onboarding Employees remotely

No matter how you onboard employees into your business the time is here to stop collecting information on paper. It is time to start collecting information electronically and directly into your system.

Collecting start and finish times against scheduled start and finish times

For 20 years now it has been very common to collect employee start and finish times electronically, comparing against a schedule allows you to easily see actual time worked against scheduled time. Just seeing this report can be eye-opening for some businesses.

Automating payroll processing

If you are not automating payroll already you must change, if your staff is manually entering data into payroll from timesheets, spreadsheets, or even from an electronic time collection device, it is time to stop!

Complicate any of the above issues across multiple locations and you have intense efficiency issues that will be costing you money every week. It is time to change, change is close by, book a 15-minute call to discuss your current processes.


How late do your employees run every day?

Deputy has discovered with the use of Big Data that at least 30% of workers across Australia’s major cities run late for work every day. That is almost 1 in 3 workers running late every day.

What does this cost your business?

The only way Deputy could gather this data was by creating an electronic scheduling program that made for easy management of rosters where employees can sign in and out each shift electronically. We all know what happens when an employee is running late on time sheets and turns up at 8.10 when they are due to start at 8.00. The employee unless challenged will always write 8:00 as the starting time even through they are running late.

Going electronic with Deputy removes all of these issues where the employee can only sign in and out at the time they arrive and leave. Deputy can also take the GPS position of the employee if they sign in from their own phone.

Deputy had the opportunity to use what many today call Big Data. More than 400,000 employee shifts were used to create the data, giving statisticians more than enough information to confirm 30% to be an average nationally.

Industries worst impacted by lateness included Construction, Hospitality and Healthcare, while retail fared better than all three. Maybe retail employees are more afraid of losing their jobs?

The average late start time ranged from 8 minutes and 4 seconds to 9 minutes and 24 seconds. I wonder how the 60% of employees that always arrive on time feel about 40% of their workmates turning up late?

If employee lateness is an issue in your business click through to start a 30 day trial of Deputy now and see how you can transform your business.
