Optimising HR management using time tracking
As a Human Resources Manager, it’s important to be able to designate time to specific clients and projects. Working from home, you can sometimes feel like you’re consumed on a continuous string of tasks, yet nobody knows where your time has gone. This can be frustrating if other departments question where the time has gone and you don’t have a clear record of your activities.
This was the challenge facing Tiffany, the founder of Pitch HR. Her role includes providing human resource management and services like resume crafting and interview coaching.
Many of the business leaders that Tiffany works alongside are keen to gain broader insights into employee focuses to help them understand cross-functional priorities and where time is spent. “Transparency is a major part of many company cultures and Timeular helps provide an easy-to-implement solution”, she says.
Before using Timeular, Tiffany attempted to track her time using her Google Calendar by adding time blocks manually. She found this time-consuming and harder to provide insights for the week. By tracking each activity with her Timeular Tracker, she can now show exactly how much time is spent working on the different companies she supports.
On a personal level, time tracking has given Tiffany peace of mind on the occasions when she works less than 8 hours, because she has proof of 12 hour days as well.
“Using Timeular means I can keep my work hours in check for a better work-life balance. In a previous role, I worked continuously for 50 to 70 hours sometimes and at the end of the week had no idea where my time went. Now, I can monitor and cap myself when needed. I can also force myself to unplug for breaks and be at peace knowing that I can review the time I actually spent being productive and dedicated to clients needs.”
Know exactly where your time has gone
There are roles in a company where it’s easy to know whether someone is doing their job or not. With a project or presentations, it’s easy to provide visibility. The variety of tasks facing HR teams mean it’s not so simple. The data from Timeular provides a visual reminder to other employees, to see what you are working on at any given time.
“I just wish I knew about Timeular before now. It’s such a powerful tool and would have spared me unnecessary fatigue and hours wasted on pointless conversations with managers/leaders who didn’t have knowledge of the impact and reach of small HR teams.”
Introducing Timeular into her working life has had a transformational effect upon how Tiffany works.
“Timeular is a game-changer. Timeular has so easily become ingrained in my routine. With just a flip of the Tracker I can switch gears and prove I’m bringing value to any organization and maintaining productivity levels. I don’t need to take notes and prove that I’m working. For anyone who works for a micromanager, this will make life so much easier. Make the small investment for a big return!”
