From a "work pressure" debate to a win-win situation through time registration

On Labor Day, many companies, but even more the employees, reflect on the theme of ‘work pressure’. This period is frequently ceased to emphasis better working conditions through strikes and manifestations. Underneath the demand for structural changes in the workplace lies the problem of excessive workload. But what is excessive workload? And how is this measured?

Dissatisfied society

In an SD Worx survey among 2,500 Flemish employees, 'Amount of work' and 'time pressure' get an average score of 6/10. Although this is based on the employee's own perception, it does give reason for thought. The dissatisfaction of the working class confirms this statement, and companies must respond to it more and more often because the employees become more powerful.

Knowledge is power

The urge for progress is continuous and digitization is becoming the irrefutable standard. Consider, for example, the shift from data storage on local servers to 'the cloud'. This responds, among other things, to the increasing demand for flexibility of employees to be able to work from different locations. But this flexibility also means that the measuring of performance and hours worked is under pressure. Employers do not want to make their employees feel like they want to monitor them, but on the other hand Human Resources still needs input for the payroll.

Go for a win-win situation

By implementing time registration, you facilitate the payroll processing on the employer's side, and the possibility to work flexibly on the employee's side in one go. A clear win-win situation.
