Tardiness and time theft will affect your company’s bottom line, research finds

Card issuance

Employees clocking in late, taking long lunches and pinching some time at the end of the work day can have a negative effect on an employer’s bottom line, recent analysis has been able to suggest.

The report quotes a study by the American Payroll Association revealing that up to 10 minutes per day, per employee, is lost due to tardiness, long lunches and early departure.

By not providing measures to keep employees accountable for their use of time while at work, companies are indirectly laying the grounds for loss of productivity and not securing your bottom line, the experts argue.

The same study also suggests that the average employee steals 4 hours and 5 minutes every week by lacking discipline or engaging in various activities not related to his job while in the workplace.

In fact, these instances of time theft amount to 2.2 percent of gross payroll losses across the US. But how can it be prevented?
