Employees’ attendance at the place of work and time spent doing the work are critical to an organization’s operational efficiency. While it is a known fact that attendance can be affected by lateness, absenteeism, abscondment, laxity and the likes, most organizations are at a loss as to the most effective methods or tools to accurately record, store and process employee attendance.
Organizations that use manual log books often overpay employees due to manual calculations which become even more tedious when calculating total number of hours worked, lateness, absenteeism and so on, at the end of the month when salaries are being prepared.
However, the question often arises if time attendance systems really save cost. When one considers the research findings that up to twenty-five per cent of an organization’s salary bills are, in real terms, unjustifiable due to employees’ lackadaisical attitude towards punctuality.
A time and attendance system provides many benefits to organizations against the backdrop that a maximized and organized means of tracking operational time leads to a high rate of employee return on investment (ROI). This brings about growth as it enables an employer to have full control of and effectively direct employees’ working hours towards achieving organizational goals. Attendance tracking goes beyond having an automated clock-in but total human resource management system such as payroll, appraisal, leave, exemption among others. Therefore, having a time and attendance HRM system is invaluable for organizations of different sizes- small, medium or large scale- to effectively track performance.

Follow a plant-based, low-calorie diet. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables—a dietary pattern studies show reduces diabetes risk. Foods to avoid are those rich in trans fats (also called hydrogenated fat), saturated fat, and sugar.
Drink water. Studies link sugar-sweetened beverages with obesity and diabetes. Cut them out of your diet and the risk of both conditions falls.
Move your body. Physical inactivity raises the risk of diabetes. Exercise renders cells more sensitive to insulin. The aforementioned 2006 study had volunteers exercising moderately 150 minutes a week. Brisk walking does the trick.
Stress less. The stress response triggers the release of several hormones that increase blood sugar. Studies show that mindfulness meditation improves the ability to cope with stress. Physical activity and social support also help relieve stress.
Sleep well. Chronic sleep deprivation and poor quality sleep increase the risk for diabetes and obesity. For tips on sleeping better, see this Remedy Chick’s blog. If you have continued problems sleeping, contact your doctor.
Keep medical appointments. Warning signs of type 2 diabetes are less dramatic than those of type 1 diabetes. That’s why it’s important to see your doctor regularly.
