The arrival of Spring is such a welcome sight. The world bursts with colors as trees regenerate, flowers bloom, and the green landscape rolls in. We open the windows to let in the crisp breeze and we fire up the grills in the evening with the extra daylight. And for many people, it means Spring cleaning.
Businesses need to do Spring cleaning as well and evaluate policies, procedures and strategies. The very practices that got businesses to where they are now may not get them to the next level in their growth. Or even worse, current activities could be tarnishing the bottom line.
For companies with a remote workforce, our telephone timekeeping system is a breath of fresh air. In our new series, Spring Cleaning for Small Businesses, we will introduce strategies to help you track, manage and report on your off-site employees. These ideas will clear the clutter in your daily remote workforce management practices as well as save you time and money. Some of the topics that we will discuss are: how to keep job budgets on track; save time editing time cards; prevent time theft by insuring that employees are on the job; and simplifying the payroll process.
