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?

3 more reasons to have Deputy Scheduling with Xero

Deputy continue to move forward faster than any other scheduling company on the globe. Deputy are moving so fast the gap between Deputy and other products in the market is widening, no competitor is keeping pace.

What about these Xero integration gems….

1. Payslip export

Along with exporting to Xero timesheets, you can now export to Xero Pay Slips directly! This means you can skip the timesheet approval process in Xero and go straight to payroll. It’s perfect for when there are elements of pay that aren’t just “Hours”. Eg. distance travelled, allowances, tips etc. If you want to track wages across tracking categories, we recommend using Timesheet export.

 

2. Auto update

Exactly one year ago Deputy launched Xeroshare. This site allows Xero customers (even those not using Deputy) to utilise industry rates in their Xero account. Deputy can read the rates directly in Xero which allowed configuring overtime and allowances using our bracket notation. There was just one little annoyance, you had to keep syncing the employees in Deputy. Today we’ve introduced a minor update, now you don’t have come to Deputy to update/sync the rates again. Simply setup “Updated Employee” -> “Sync Pay Rates” integration under Location Settings -> Add-Ons -> Xero.

 

drum roll……..and now for the big one….

3. Xero payroll for the UK

After working closely with the Xero Payroll team Deputy are proud to be the first add-on partner to release an integration for Xero Payroll UK. This will enable Deputy customers to streamline business processes and further reduce their administrative burden. Deputy already enriched the payroll process for thousands of Aussie and US businesses. Now Deputy are delighted to do the same for our customers in the UK.

Deputy partners in the UK are notably excited about what this means for their clients, already Deputy are hearing statements such as “This integration helps us to improve the efficiency of businesses across the UK, it’s a real game-changer for business operations today.”

 

The Deputy team are outstanding, have insight beyond the next 20 scheduling companies combined globally. I remember sharing with a partner more than 10 years ago that cloud was the way to go but they insisted on staying with traditional time and attendance. The world has changed, the game has changed and employee scheduling has changed forever thanks to Deputy.

Deputy is now in more than 70 countries around the world.

Ask Questions to get the most accurate answers when selecting an employee scheduling software for your business

I received this question recently…

I have already evaluated Deputy. According to my staff I am unable to run two rosters (one for Kitchen and one for Floor) in my restaurants without having two ipad time clock kiosks at each site. The alternative was to have the kitchen and floor rostering combined so that I can have just the one ipad kiosk on site. It is a strange restriction that your competitors have managed to avoid.

After speaking with the customer and getting a full understanding of the issue we discovered….That this was simply a misunderstanding as the software is more than capable of handling unlimited departments on a single iPad kiosk.

Deputy_Mobile_App

The most popular way for employees to sign in & out globally with Deputy scheduling software is to use existing smart devices. Most employees today either have an iPhone or an android phone, each employee can use their own phone, download the Deputy app and start signing in and signing out. Employees can also see their own schedule, apply for leave, or simply build in future availability so that the person completing the schedule is automatically notified of the employee’s intentions.
