Time and attendance systems at work: are the days of clocking in over?

Time and attendance systems at work: are the days of clocking in over?

3 December 2019

Brussels 3 December 2019 – Employees are (still) clocking in when they arrive at work at a huge number of companies in Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Eight out of ten companies register when their employees start and stop work using a conventional time and attendance (T&A) system: a card reader, a time clock, Excel sheets, or even paper. An international study by HR service provider SD Worx and specialist in time registration and personnel planning Protime has found that digital and biometric alternatives – such as logging in with an app or fingerprint scan – are far less common.
