Time Theft Prevention

Time Theft… Is it robbing you blind?

Time theft is an epidemic out of control in Australian businesses today. It costs businesses hundreds of billions of dollars each year and your business is one of them.

Don‘t kid yourself, it is.

Your time, your money.

You could be losing 4.5hrs per week

Studies show (source: Acroprint Time Systems) that the typical employee time theft averages approximately 54 minutes per day, or 4.5 hours per week. That equates to almost six full work weeks per year per employee. YIKES!

You could be losing more than 10% of your payroll to:
  • Employees doing side jobs while on your payroll
  • Late arrival or early departure
  • Personal errands
  • Plus many more


Oh, and here’s the clincher… the majority of business owners and managers surveyed state that, “employees who are with you the longest steal more time than newer employees do.”

Let’s do the math…

As stated above – 54 minutes time theft per employee per day based on a 250 day work year (5 days per week for 50 weeks).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your overhead and overtime per “employee costs,” could easily increase the above figures by 30 to 50 percent.

WARNING: Over time your best employees will see that others are taking advantage of you and your business by doing time theft. In turn, your best employees will start do the same if you do not handle time theft immediately.
