Employee time theft continues to be a big problem for many employers. In the current scenario, with more employees accessing the internet than ever before and with a rising mobile workforce, time-theft is getting more challenging to prevent. Consequently, it may act as a barrier in optimizing employee’s time and thus productivity in a proper manner.
Time theft can be defined as a practice where an employee is paid for the work they have not done or for the times they have not reported to work. This can lead to a loss in productivity levels as well as highlight deterrence to company policies. Therefore, to end the practice of time theft, organizations must invest in an attendance system with face recognition technology.
Here are some benefits along with eliminating time theft that a facial recognition attendance system like KENT CamAttendance offers:
Helps Eliminate Time Theft
Organizations tend to lose a tremendous amount of work hours every year because of illegal practices, such as buddy punching and time theft.
An attendance system with face recognition feature will help eliminate such practices. The employees just need to stand in front of the device to have it capture their face and match it with the employee data for successful attendance recording. Therefore, a co-worker will not be able to clock-in or clock-out for another employee.
The entire process of recording attendance will be done by the attendance system. It means that the complete attendance registration and calculation will be done by the system itself. Subsequently, this will save time, money and efforts to process such critical calculations, without having to make significant investments in securing human workforce for the same.
An attendance system with face recognition feature will not just record attendance but also highlight the exact clock-in and clock-out time. Sometimes there can be a situation where the identity and the time of entry and exit of a specific person needs to be noted. Such systems easily show you the data records of the concerned person. This will increase the security level at your workplace.
Having an attendance system with face recognition will not only allow you to record the attendance of the employees but do so without requiring employees to use their fingerprints for the same. The Indian Government has banned fingerprint systems keeping in view the rising COVID-19 cases in the country. An attendance system with face recognition technology will solve this problem effortlessly.
Therefore, the whole system makes for a faster, safer and a time-saving method for recording attendance.
Now that you have understood the benefits of facial recognition feature in an attendance management system, let’s try to understand how an attendance system with face recognition helps an organization:
1. Increases Employee Productivity Levels
An attendance system with face recognition helps eliminate barriers, such as buddy punching and time theft, thereby increasing the productivity levels of employees.
2. Helps in Improving Employee Accountability
The data gathered by an attendance system with face recognition helps create an audit trail for managing time and attendance records. By fostering a culture of accountability and responsibility, such systems help employees effectively plan out how they would like to manage their time at work. As a result, behaviours such as employees who repetitively show up late for work or take extended breaks etc., will be discouraged to do so.
