Time and attendance recording: pro and contra

Sceptics of time and attendance recording argue mainly on the cost level against time recording.

Proponents refute these arguments with many positive aspects and synergies in other areas of the company.

Back to overview

ContraPro
  • As a result of the recording of the hours and the associated reduction in overtime, employees have additional days off and are not present in the company.
  • Employees and managers have an overview and transparency of their working hours, making flexitime arrangements possible.
  • Increased administrative effort by recording and controlling working hours
  • Payroll accounting by hours worked significantly reduces the workload of the personnel department
  • Every company needs an internal contact person to support the time recording system and to issue employee cards.
  • Time recording provides data on workload and overtime situation and can be used for burn-out prevention.
  • Employees could feel in a controlled environment.
  • Flexible working hours based on time recording are rated very positively by employees and are an important criterion when deciding on a job.
  • Es entstehen evtl. höhere Kosten durch Auszahlung von Überstunden.
  • Employees do not have to keep their own records in paper form.
  • The flexibility of confidential working hours is being lost.
  • Employees are more willing to work overtime (at peak workloads) if they are compensated afterwards. (Encouraging employees who show commitment).
 
  • When working hours are based on trust, there is often social pressure to work unproductive overtime in order not to attract negative attention. This social pressure can be a stress factor. 
 
  • Trust working time has the negative side of being unfair: employees who work overtime compare themselves to employees who leave the office early. Moreover, this system is dominated by a lack of transparency.
 
  • With an electronic time recording with mobile booking options, employees in the home office or in the field can also book their working hours.
 
  • If time recording is organized on the basis of RFID cards, the company ID card can be used for further organizational tasks within the company: Access control, payment functions for canteen or vending machines, follow-me printing and key lock management are further applications.
