Highlighting the Pros of Time Management within an Organization

There are a lot of debates on the use of time tracking softwares at the workplace; there are many arguments that present a strong case for not having a time management software within the organization. For it invades the privacy of the employees and how it often makes one the target of being always under the radar despite the hard work one puts in.

One such example is the article that was featured in Harper’s Magazine that made waves within organizations on the downside of a time tracking software and how the machine had a life of its own and eventually contributed to someone losing their job unfairly. Full timers, not being recognized for all the hours they put in at work, and burdening them with some of the craziest work hours per week that are far more than the prerequisites.

Overall, the article picks time management softwares as being one-sided when it comes to saving resources that happen at the costs of their employees and preventing employees from receiving benefits that they rightly deserve.

But it is to be noted that this article among many, provide only one side of the spectrum. As in today’s day and age, there has been a significant shift in the workforce with the rise of a ‘knowledge worker,’ which means the labor they put in at their offices is not the most valuable commodity to the organization but what they bring to the table with regards their knowledge.

Therefore, understanding what a worker is bringing regarding knowledge and the quality of the work they put in is becoming increasingly important. For businesses, it becomes difficult to know how a worker is contributing to the company as a whole and what value is being added regarding costs.

This is where time tracking softwares such as TimeLive, etc. come in as they help companies understand how a worker is contributing.

Furthermore, the primary benefit of time and project tracking is t understand the real costs of a project. Big IT companies such as McKinsey & Company have reported that most of their IT projects go 45% over budget and deliver work that is barely of 56% value in return. Over here, we see time and project management softwares making a difference as they let you accurately track the past projects, so accurate predictions can be made in regards to cost for the future.

Features as such resource allocation of the project and time management tools, are often overlooked and can help companies come up with better value for their time and money and also help employees be less burdened. The purpose of such softwares is to ease the way things work mostly, and payroll and invoice generation is, therefore, another feature that is again found in such softwares for they let the employees and managers actually to work rather than mull over the long spreadsheets.
