Why is Time and Attendance Important?

Accurate time and attendance information not only ensures employees are scheduled and paid correctly, but it also provides statistics to back up business decisions. And, with up-to-date time and attendance data, companies can more effectively anticipate labor demand, track the number of hours available for each employee, make and share employee schedules, and more.

Without an efficient time and attendance solution like UKG, companies could face larger absence patterns, higher turnover rates, lower employee morale, and a weaker company culture.
