Some sort of payroll process is necessary for nearly any business, regardless of its industry. However, there are some industries that need more than just basic payroll software in order to better run their day-to-day processes. Chief among these is the manufacturing industry. Whether it’s assembly work, machine operation, packaging, shipping, or supervising, organizations in this industry need to have a payroll software that can handle the intricacies of running a manufacturing business.
Employee time theft is a reality of any business. This can take the form of anything from falsifying hours, handling personal business while on the clock, or partake in “buddy punching,” which is when an employee clocks in or out for a friend who is not on site yet. With nearly half of the hourly workforce admitting to this, employers need to know how to combat it. The first step of doing this is being aware of what the most common methods of committing time theft are.
