here was a mid-sized employment agency. On average, the company would employ 200 different temps for the month.
10% of those temps billed less than 10 hours for the month.
At one point in time, the company was tracking all of the time on paper. Lots of faxes, lots of time spent getting companies to sign off on time. It wasn’t pretty!
The company decided they needed to become just a bit more “tech-savvy”. The company now uses a web based time tracking system. They are paying $5.50 to allow each of their temps to log time.
Even those employees who clocked less than 10 hours for the month.
At one point, the company thinks, “We just won’t put those people into our system.”
But then they realize their data is being stored in multiple places.
And let’s not forget, it’s not just the employees who need accounts. The company wants their clients to be able to log in and approve time. 300 clients, some of whom the company might not have worked with for the month in question. But who wants to spend time adding and removing clients every month?
This is a really sad story!
How can this story have a happy ending?
