Here is how Eco Time assisted TNA in reducing absenteeism and late-coming
First of all, I have to state that the TNA system assisted greatly in combination with our time and attendance Policy which outlines clearly what absenteeism is, late-coming, what action will be taken, how to use the system, etc.
On a daily basis, we print out Current Absenteeism and Late-coming reports (written for Sunny Packs), that show us who has come late, and who is absent. This list is then circulated amongst our supervisors and they will make notes on who has and has not reported their late-coming or absenteeism.
If an employee is absent, and has not reported, we stop their card which forces them to report to reception when they return.
With regard to Late-coming, once a month, I print out a late-coming report for all our employees, and those that fall outside the guidelines of our time and attendance policy is issued a warning with a print-out of their clocking times to support the warning.
When we started using TNA, our unreported absenteeism was very high, but with the assistance of TNA, daily monitoring and action taken, it has dropped dramatically over the last 12 months. Because we do not capture employee leave on TNA, but on VIP, it does not reflect on TNA reports. I, however monitor it daily, thus I know for a fact it has dropped. We have dismissed three employees for unreported absenteeism, as we can prove their absenteeism with TNA. We have also “dismissed” five employees for absconding, as TNA highlights to us who has been absent for three days or more. (a special report written for us by EcoTime).
With the assistance of TNA, we’ve successfully dismissed three employees for continuous late-coming. TNA reports assisted us at the CCMA as it was undeniable facts presented to the Commissioner during the hearings. The employees claimed unfair dismissal and their late-coming was not that bad, but the Commissioner dismissed the case due to the evidence presented to him (TNA reports, warnings, etc.)
With monitoring, we are currently also underway with action against employees for fraudulent time keeping (employees who wait at the clock for home-time before clocking out) as well as poor timekeeping. We can pick up who goes into the bathrooms to get dressed before knock-off time and then only go clock out. This is used in conjunction with 160 cameras we have on-site. Our sirens are also connected up to TNA, thus the when the siren goes off, it goes off at the correct time, based on TNA.
We are also monitoring who goes for excessive smoke breaks, to many bathroom breaks, and to long bathroom breaks (again, a report written for us by EcoTime).
I would have to write an essay on how TNA has dramatically assisted us in monitoring and “controlling” our employees times. Production is now more efficient, as employees are aware that we can monitor their times, thus they are spending more time (as it should be) at their workstations.
I have to make mention that not monitoring employee clockings, and not taking action when required or not having a clearly defined time and attendance policy in conjunction with TNA, it is like a gun without bullets. It’s there to use and help, but of no great assistance.
I hope the above helps you in your decision for implementing TNA through EcoTime.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any queries.
