Time & Attendance
By Staff Report
Sep. 20, 2012
What policy will cause employers to lose the most sleep in the coming year? According to a recent survey conducted by BLR, social media will be the most formidable challenge for businesses in 2013.
The complete answers to the question of which policy presents the biggest challenge to employers:
• social media: 47.1%
• cell phone use and distracted driving: 21.6%
• attendance and punctuality: 17.4%
• computer and Internet: 15.9%
• FMLA: 15.9%
Perhaps what’s more interesting, however, is that if you look at these issues more broadly, they fall into two main categories: technology and attendance. Amazingly, technology trumps attendance by more than 2.5 to 1 margin. You may not be convinced that workplace technology (which includes social media and mobile devices) is not the key issue currently facing employers. This survey, however, says otherwise.
