Older women employees are the least likely to be late for work, according to a survey published yesterday. But men in their twenties and thirties are the ones to watch for bosses worried about staff punctuality, it said. The survey by timekeeping software company Deputy analysed data from company records on the punctuality of hourly-paid workers.
Ashik Ahmed is the CEO of Sydney start up Deputy, the homegrown company pegged as a future $1 billion tech unicorn. Deputy as described by co-founder Steve Shelley… ‘is an all-in-one cloud based workplace management solution that helps businesses save time and money by eliminating manual processes by simplifying scheduling, time-sheets, tasking, performance management and communication.
Australian workers start the year off at their most punctual, being the earliest to work they will be in January. However, this trend quickly falls apart according to Deputy’s Late to Work Report, which saw February as the month when Aussies were the most late to work.
Deputy, the workforce management software platform, announced the release of its annual, global report highlighting the tardiness of hourly workforces across the U.S., Australia, and the United Kingdom.
An analysis of 28,290,974 million scheduled and worked shifts between March 2018 to March 2019 from businesses using Deputy to manage scheduling, timesheets, and payroll has unpacked the punctuality trends of shift workers around the world.
Millennials are the country’s least reliable workers while Baby Boomers are the most dependable – but not by much. Millennial employees, born from 1981 to 1995, are more likely to be late than any other generation, including the younger Generation Z.
A whopping 73 per cent of millennial men and 70 per cent of millennial women were late to work at least once from March 2018 to March 2019.
That 6% figure is smaller than Steven Power, global president of Deputy, expected it to be, he told HR Dive in an interview. A 2018 CareerBuilder study found that American workers are less tardy than they used to be, but that 25% still admit struggling to get to work on time.
It’s arguably the best time in history to be an hourly worker. All around the world, there is a resurgence of laws and legislation dedicated to improving workers’ rights and conditions. From pending U.S. legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to the U.K.’s recent increase in the national minimum wage, governments are listening to workers’ calls for support and taking direct action.
Atlanta-based Deputy, a provider of workforce management solutions, has hired a new CMO, Jennifer Shambroom. Shambroom has 18+ years of experience leading teams within tech startups, such as Lookout, Motricity, Payfone, Crittercism and YouAppi.
In the hospitality industry, retail businesses and quick-service restaurants especially, on-call scheduling has been the norm, making it difficult for employees to anticipate pay, establish a healthy work-life balance or even determine the number of hours they are likely to work each week.
