Topic:  Time and Attendance: Best Practices and Auditing

Labor can be the largest cost in any organization, and one that is controllable, especially when you utilize industry leading best practices to track time worked and employee absences, both planned and unplanned, in employee schedules. Organizations are challenged to achieve and maintain compliance with internal policies, union agreements (for some), and federal laws such as Department of Labor Wage and Hour Rules, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Affordable Care Act. Efficient allocation and management of labor hours positively impacts revenues. Inefficiencies can increase costs, decrease profits and create dissatisfaction to both employees and customers.

In this session, we will look at these industry leading best practices for managing your time and attendance processes and policies. Two characteristics observed in high-performing organizations are the use of time and attendance data to improve the quality of labor deployment; and the standardization of time management processes.

Speaker:  Tim Cochran, CPP

Tim Cochran, CPP has almost 20 years of experience in the areas of Payroll, Time and Attendance, Human Resources, and Payroll Tax.  He started his payroll career in processing in 1998.  Through the years, he has worked from data entry in Human Resources through the processing of pay to employees and payment of taxes.  He spent several years in payroll tax, working through several mergers, divestitures and acquisitions in multiple states and localities. 

During the past 10 years he has worked at Duke Energy in Time and Attendance helping to implement and integrate their time reporting system for 50,000 contingent workers and employees.  The company has acquired other companies during this time and moved them to the Duke platform.  He has been heavily involved in the consolidation of those systems as well as integration with several Work Management systems, gaining an in-depth knowledge regarding how Time and Attendance is not only affected by but also affects other areas of the business.  He has helped to develop the process design as well as understand the technical and management aspects of time and attendance.
