2 Simple Ways To Help Your Employees Adopt Timesheet

2 Simple Ways To Help Your Employees Adopt Timesheet

The 90-day period after you first introduce an application to your employees is critical when it comes to ensuring adoption.  Getting people to use a new time management system can be challenging.  Let’s face it – filling out timesheets is pretty boring.  Some employees get into the habit of putting off this tedious task.

When this happens, it hampers the organization’s ability to conduct business.  If you are managing a project, not having timesheets filled out promptly keeps you from effectively managing costs and forecasting accurate completion dates.  Inaccuracies in payroll due to missing time data can cause unintentional lapses in compliance and leave you open to possible litigation.  If you are billing your clients based on time data, it delays your ability to send out error-free invoices.  How do you ensure your employees get on board with using timesheet?  Here are 2 tools in Web TimeSheet that can help:

Automated Reminders

You can easily configure Web TimeSheet to send out reminders to all your employees encouraging them to complete their timesheets.  You choose the timing and frequency of these notifications.  A typical reminder email tells your employees which time period needs to be filled out and when it is due.  It also contains a clickable link to take employees directly to their timesheet.

email notifications

That’s just one of the automated email notifications you can use to promote compliance.  Choose from our full range of templates and modify them specifically to meet your needs:

In-Depth Reporting

We also provide reporting functions which allow you to identify workers who consistently have difficulty completing their timesheets and turning them in.  That way, you can offer additional assistance to those who need it.  Use one-on-one counseling to help these employees understand how Web TimeSheet works and why adopting it will help keep your company running smoothly.
