The average manager can spend up to two full days a week on administrative tasks. You aren’t a machine and neither are your managers or HR team. However, to gain the most from your temp staff, a machine is exactly what you need. A smart one.

WorkTRACZone ensures that you surpass the 80% of businesses that are floundering in misadministration, and guarantees that your temp staff are utilised to the maximum.

Keep clear of the danger zone

Research by UK-based company, Service Now, found that eight out of ten companies still use inefficient manual tracking to drive productive work processes, putting their company’s temping situation in the danger zone. Are you one of them? Ask yourself these five questions:

  1. Are you aware of all the skills available to you through your temp workers?
  2. Can you remotely access your temp staff’s work rosters anytime, anywhere?
  3. Do you know exactly how much overtime is being generated in your business?
  4. Are your temp staff’s absenteeism records completely up to date?
  5. Do you have convenient access to all your temp staff’s work histories?

If you answered no to any one of these questions, then your temporary staff are gravely underperforming.
