Time tracking is an essential aspect of any organization. Accurately tracking employees’ time allows for effective payroll processing, project management, and performance evaluation.  

Workday Time Tracking integrated with a cloud-based time clock system like TimeCom is a popular option on the market, offering several benefits. 

What is Workday Time Tracking? 

Workday Time Tracking is a part of Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) which helps organizations accurately track employee time and attendance. This cloud-based solution automates time collection, including time entry, approvals, and reporting.  

With Workday Time Tracking, organizations can track employee hours, including overtime, shift differentials, and other pay rules. The solution offers real-time visibility into employee time and absence. It helps organizations manage labor costs and secure compliance with labor laws and regulations. 

A key feature of Workday Time Tracking is its flexibility. Companies can easily configure Workday to meet their unique time tracking requirements, including complex scheduling and pay rules. Workday Time Tracking integrates easily with other Workday HCM modules, like Workday payroll and Workday absence management.  

Workday Time Tracking’s flexibility increases when it's integrated with a Workday verified time clock solution. Implementing a time clock system into your Workday environment benefits much more than payroll and HR staff.

Provide a Positive Employee Experience 

Using a Workday-compatible ATS time clocks offers employees several advantages. Since it tracks work hours more accurately, employees receive more accurate paychecks, promoting compensation transparency and fairness. 

A Workday-compatible time tracking time clock also offers convenience.

With the ESS (employee self-service) functionality, employees have more access to their information. 

Integrating TimeCom with Workday helps organizations improve compliance with labor regulations. For example, companies can configure the time clock to ensure that employees take their required breaks and meal periods. Tools like this reduce the risk of non-compliance with labor laws, protecting employees and managers.

The combined solution improves employee experience, boosts productivity, and enhances the overall performance of businesses. 


The Benefit of Using a Biometric Time Clock in Your Workday Environment

Biometric Usage: Growing concerns over the privacy and security of biometrics are driving government regulations surrounding the definition of personal data and how to protect it. These regulations vary from country to country, state-to-state, and in some cases city by city. Most often the governing regulations are dictated based on the location where the information is being collected. It is important to understand the local regulations in the geographic areas in which you operate. If you are uncertain regarding your regulatory obligations, we encourage you to consult with your legal counsel.
