Tracking employee time sheets is one of the most important aspects of running your organization.
Thing is, in this day and age, your employees want to complete this task on their smartphones – and you should too! Let’s explore why going digital matters, and how Activity Messenger can make this happen in a way that’s easy and convenient for everyone involved.
Make it easy for your employees to submit their timesheets online by automating reminders by SMS/Email. By setting up an automated system that sends out periodic reminders to employees, there is little excuse for anyone forgetting or not submitting on time. Plus, automated reminders eliminate any back-and-forth communication between employer and employees over whether or not a timesheet has been submitted.
Generating scannable QR codes ensures employees can easily find and update their timesheets on the spot. This is a nice solution that straddles the line between the digital and physical world. We’ve found that integrating QR codes in strategic locations around an office space makes it more likely for employees to submit their timesheet information on time.
The emergence of Generation Z in the workforce means employers need to adopt workflows that appeal to a young generation. Gen Zers are used to technology being at their fingertips all the time, so they will appreciate intuitive, smartphone enabled solutions that streamline repetitive tasks with a few taps and swipes.
