3 Resources to Help You Manage Your Employees
3 Employee Management Tools
When first starting out, most business owners are focused on turning a profit and upscaling their operations – not on accounting and human resources. While things like payroll and employee management can be handled by others when your company can afford the expertise, many entrepreneurs and small businesses are forced to take these tasks on themselves. At best, these responsibilities become chores that take you away from your primary focus, and at worst they can be overwhelming. Thankfully, there are plenty of tools available to business owners that can cut down on the time you spend on administering to your employees and make things easier for both you and your employees.
TSheets is a timesheet tracking service with multiple integrations and other functionalities that make it easy to customize for your business’s unique needs. It’s especially useful if your employees are spread across multiple worksites. This is because TSheets features geofencing technology that not only helps you as an employer keep track of your employee’s safety and efficiency but reminds your employees to clock in and out when entering and exiting a worksite as well. TSheets can save its users several hours a week by streaming your payroll and invoices. There are even multiple timecard options that you can choose from, and biometrics are used to ensure employee accountability and honesty.
Hubstaff is another way to track your employee’s time and productivity. You can either download their software onto your business’s computers or have your employees install it on their own devices if they work remotely or away from the office. If you’re worried about employee efficiency or if one of your workers tends to slack off, Hubstaff also calculates how active its user was during the workday and reports it to you via email. It also tracks the websites that they visit and takes screenshots so you can make sure everyone is making the best use of their time and staying on task.
OnPay provides affordable, easy-to-use payroll software that’s often a perfect fit for small businesses, and the company plans on expanding into HR services in the future. In addition to helping you accurately calculate and distribute your employee’s pay, OnPay also automatically makes all the necessary withholdings and handles payroll taxes for you. You can also use OnPay to provide health insurance and 401(k) plans to your employees and for help with meeting state workers’ compensation requirements. Setting up only takes a few minutes, and it integrates with other popular apps and pieces of software used by business owners, such as QuickBooks or the above-mentioned TSheets.
