  1. I have to agree on using a tool to track employee’s work hours however, using a time and attendance software will do just that. What about the worker’s productivity?
    One flaw on using a time and attendance tool that’s purely based on clocking in and out is that you don’t have any assurance if your employees are doing the job they are paid to do or just wasting their time talking to their co-workers. I think, it is also important to monitor our staff’s productivity. Most especially if you have a remote team working for you. There’s this blog that have given me more information about these kind of tools, if you’re interested, check it out:
