Actual Times

As a business owner you will have noticed that during high or low customer traffic seasons, rostered times may vary across different employees and sites of your business.

Rostered hours and actual worked hours may differ from time to time. Staff may end up working late to accommodate busy periods or may end up starting a shift later than expected.

As a manager of your business, you have the option of selecting how you would like to approve the hours worked by your staff and send across to your Payroll provider as a draft timesheet. If your business is keeping ahold of time-sheets, RosterElf’s Clock In and Out software feature will also give you an accurate summary of hours worked to compare between what you have rostered and the shifts staff have worked. This will help keep business costs down and stay on budget.

Actual times are the times staff have actually worked based on Clock In/Out digital time-sheets. With the RosterElf payroll integration process, managers are able to compare between Rostered Times, Clock In/Out Times, and then Approved Times. Managers can select which hours to send through to payroll and understand the variance between the sets of shift times.

Understanding the differences in rostered times, clock in/out times, and your approved times will ensure your business is keeping to budget and labour costs are kept to a minimum. By keeping a close eye on time sheets and actual hours worked, you can focus on other areas of your business that may need further attention or priority.
