“A large food production facility recently noticed incremental increases in their overtime costs. The overtime hours did not match production output. At first, it was thought to be a training problem. However, upon further investigation by the management staff, it was discovered that the problem was employee-based improprieties. Overhearing a conversation between different employees revealed co-workers were clocking others out after they had left the facility.”
Large corporations along with smaller companies have experienced these seemingly “innocent” indiscretions by employees for years. In the past, it was difficult to discover problems of this nature, and it was time-consuming to audit time-in and time-out for each and every employee to find the discrepancies. This type of problem was often written off as a loss. The losses can be astounding.
