It is difficult to start a business. That’s the reason most start-ups fail in the initial few years. But you can make things simpler on yourself, at least where managing your employees is concerned. There are many apps available that small business owners can leverage to reduce the time used on managing employees and generally increase efficiency. Here is a look at three key apps for managing your small business’s employees.
It might seem a tad old-fashioned to have your employees punch in and out of work, but it can be helpful from an organizational perspective. Labor Time Tracker is a great alternative to physical time sheets. It is an app that costs $4.95 a month for each employee and they punch their hours on virtual cards. It helps you to easily see who is out and who is working, as well as easily track overtime.
Trello is one of a large number of organization apps designed to keep business owners on task, but Trello does differ in one significant way: It lets business owners add employees and contractors to their various to-do lists. This way, everyone in a company can see these lists whilst keeping tabs on what must be done throughout the day. Trello also lets business owners assign tasks to their employees and send them messages related to the business’s various to-do lists.
TribeHR is not only economical, only $2 a month for each user, but it’s also one of the highest-ranking human-resources apps available on the market. With it business owners can track employee’s time off, schedule evaluations, and update employee profiles. It fundamentally does all you need without having a large HR department.
If you’re looking to build a small business in today’s difficult economy, you need all the help you can get. Take a look at the people-management apps available today. You could be astonished at how powerful they are.
