Most of the time and effort spent running a business is dedicated to managing employees. Homebase is a powerful, all-in-one tool that can relieve some of the stress of managing your team. It takes away many of your daily tasks and allows you to spend more time on your business.
Let’s examine three reasons team management tools can be a great idea.
Save on labor costs with brilliant time clocks
If you rely on an old-fashioned punch or spreadsheet to track each employee’s work hours, it’s easy for labor costs to get lost. Homebase’s time clock prevents time theft, among other things.
Employees can clock in using their PIN with the Homebase time clock app. This free app is available for all mobile devices. You can set up GPS functionality if the employee works remotely, so they do not waste time getting to headquarters.
Do you have a problem with your buddy punching each other? Homebase doesn’t allow buddy hitting. Homebase’s app snaps a picture of every employee when they clock in so that you know who it is.
Homebase can also help you keep your labor costs down by tracking when an employee exceeds the overtime limit. You’ll be alerted so that you can make smarter decisions.
Schedules are easier to manage with technology.
Everyone is happier with a more brilliant schedule strategy. You save time, and your team enjoys working together.
Homebase automates the scheduling process for you with templates and auto-scheduling. You don’t need to spend hours manually doing it. You can track time-off requests and availability to avoid conflicts. You can also create schedules that align with sales forecasts and your labor targets.
Homebase will notify your team as soon as your schedule is complete so that they are aware of their upcoming shifts. You can then confirm that the scheduled employees have seen the program so everyone is on the same page.
High-tech tools help keep you compliant.
You may have stayed up late at night as a business owner because of the stress of complying with state and federal labor laws. Homebase takes the legal legwork of managing teams out in many ways.
It tracks your hours accurately and allows you to set up break and overtime rules in compliance with federal, city, state, and local labor laws. FLSA requires that you keep specific records of employees for a specified period. Homebase will take care of it for you, storing the documents securely in Homebase.
Homebase provides all necessary forms to new employees before they start their job. We’ll keep the documents in your dashboard after they have e-signed the paperwork.
This dashboard allows you to manage employee data, track certifications and receive alerts when certificates expire. Don’t worry if your local labor laws change. Homebase will let you know.
