It’s been six months, and every day Harold puts in a good hard day at work and goes home a little bit early. This doesn’t bother you a bit; he’s a hard worker. But one day, you happen to catch a glimpse of some payroll records, and you notice something a bit distressing. For these past six months, Harold has been receiving a full 8 hours of pay per day! You pull out your trusty calculator and discover that Harold has been given almost a week’s worth of extra income, to the tune of hundreds of dollars of company money. To make matters worse, this causes you to look into the issue further—only to discover that Harold is not the only one doing this.
Accountable Timekeeping for Sioux Falls
Keeping your employees accountable is difficult using the “honor system,” and the issue is only compounded by using manual methods for payroll and timekeeping for your Sioux Falls business. Apart from dishonest practices like time theft and “buddy punching,” (that is, having your “buddy” punch the clock for you) you also run a greater risk of human error in processing and—let’s not forget—spending more labor minutes during manual time card totaling.
More Accurate Payroll
The American Payroll Association estimates that 1 to 8% of total payroll is miscalculated. This figure is made more significant if you consider that this is just the rate of incorrect entries. It’s bad enough to imagine paying 8% more than you should. But each instance amidst this 8% is its own unique error—pushing the wrong key on the number pad or putting a decimal point in the wrong place. If such errors aren’t caught, the results could be staggering…and you may never realize what’s happened.
Don’t pay more than you should for payroll! Automated Payroll is the easy solution for keeping all of your I’s dotted and your T’s crossed without any extra time or effort by you or your employees.
