Timesheets are essential to keep track of how long your team have worked for hourly paid and flexible-hours staff. But let’s face it, they can also be a real pain. People often don’t fill them in on time, and it can be a minor nightmare getting them approved sensibly. And after all that, someone has to calculate the wages and holiday pay due, then file all that information and over to whoever does your payroll. We know lots of small business owners who take an afternoon or evening every month just to sort all their timesheets for the month out.
We think there’s a better way. So we’ve built online timesheets into citrusHR.
We have two types of timesheet:
1. Simple online timesheets for staff who just need to log the number of hours they worked in the day:
These timesheets let your staff fill in the hours they work on our website, which they can do from wherever they are, rather than waiting till they are back in the office. It even makes it easy to store a description of what each person was doing each day.
2. Time tracking timesheets for staff who need to allocate their time to projects
These timesheets let your staff allocate time down to the minute to different clients, projects or activities. And there is a stopwatch that they can use to record the exact time spent to a project or client the moment they are finished. Our consultancy, agency and project management business find this extremely hepful.
In both instances your employees can send each completed timesheet to their manager for approval through our website (no paper or printing!). Our software then calculates all the wages from these timesheets for you, and automatically stores them. So “doing the wages” goes from being an afternoon to the click of a button…
Our timesheets are used for all kinds of staff—people on Casual Hours or Zero Hours contracts, and people on Flexible contracts. Our clever website not only calculates how much people have earned from this information, but also their holiday entitlement, overtime worked and generate TOIL for the employee—including the latest changes to the law governing holiday entitlement for zero hours and casual hours’ workers.
