It’s almost that spooky time of year again – ghouls, goblins, gremlins and of course, the tradition of kids knocking on our doors declaring “Trick or Treat”. Every kid wants a treat! Isn’t that what we all want? So let’s avoid the tricks this Halloween and look at all the ways Softworks can “treat” you!

1. Save You Time

How much time do you or your HR manager spend each week (or day) trying to make a work schedule? It can be such a nightmare! Using our Workforce Management Software can save you and your business hours per week so more time can be spent on the human aspect of HR within your corporate environment. As Softworks have a web based system, you can manage tasks wherever you are instead of rushing back to the office.

2. Increase Security

Biometric data collection devices (i.e. fingerprint scanners) make it so only an actual employee can clock in and out, which helps eliminate “buddy punching”, the practice of one worker clocking in for another. Spreadsheets are not very accurate, time consuming, and do not provide useful insights. Your organisation should begin thinking about the better alternative – Softworks Workforce Management Solutions.

3. Reduce Absenteeism

Employee absence has a huge impact on any organisation and the best way to control it is with a Time and Attendance Solution. Attendance needs management and absenteeism needs to be controlled. The software will allow an organisation to track rates and report reasons for the absenteeism. Recording absences allows the relevant people such as line managers, colleagues, payroll and so on to be notified. The recorded absences can then be totalised and can used as a management aid. This can be done by highlighting employees with unusual absenteeism levels, comparing how absenteeism varies by department, how it varies over time and so on.

4. Increase Employee Satisfaction

Scheduling and handling time-off requests are an important part of maintaining a satisfied workforce. When employee satisfaction increases, issues such as turnover may decrease. With automated systems, it is possible to quickly review, approve, and address absence requests and manage planned absences to minimise their effect on your business.

5. Reduce Errors

When the onus of responsibility rests with humans, there is always a chance of human error, which can lead to lost time and increased discrepancies. Our Time and Attendance Softwarereduces the risk of human error and ensures an easy, impartial and orderly approach in addressing specific needs without any confusion.

6. Softworks Self-Service Mobile App

Easily turn your administrative nightmare of managing employee time & attendance into a dream come true with Softworks new self-service app. Believe it or not, our mobile app is not a trick. It is simply another treat we have for you, so what are you waiting for?
