Opposing opinions on time registration 

While some view it as a restriction on flexibility and a form of control and surveillance of employees, others see it as a necessity to gain insight into how the company’s resources are utilized and to enable more accurate billing. Despite increased administrative costs and the required behavioral change, time tracking can provide managers and employees with a better overview of working hours and patterns.


Considerations and Implications on the new Time Registration Regulations

The idea of registering employees’ working hours is something many are fond of – others not so much. There are those who regard the requirement for time registration as limiting flexibility. In addition, companies worry about increased control and monitoring of employees.

It is impossible to avoid an increased administration costs when introducing a time registration system. In addition, of course, it takes time to introduce an organizational behavioral change that everyone has to get used to. For this reason, it is important to acquire a system that is easy to navigate.

In addition to providing insight into whether employees are working overtime or not getting enough rest time, time registration provides an opportunity to gain insight into how the company’s personnel resources are used. In other words, it becomes easier to create an overview of which projects and tasks are in circulation in the company. In addition, an improved invoicing process can be achieved, as registering time in connection with external projects, tasks, customer and client matters creates a solid basis for accurate invoicing. If the process is digital and automated, this also means that invoicing can be executed quickly and efficiently.

Regardless, this is an obvious opportunity for workers to find out if they are actually working more hours than they are being paid for. As mentioned, a flexible working model prevails in Denmark, where employees are not always working from 8 am to 4 pm. The extra hours spent in front of the computer in the evening can easily add up and cause them to work overtime. Time registration provides a basis for a fact-based dialogue with managers and colleagues about this very thing.

Having said that, there are very few people in Denmark who work to the extend that they do not meet the requirements for rest periods.

Even if you do not find that you are working overtime, time registration will still give you a better overview and the opportunity to identify your own work patterns. This can be used to identify various time wasters that everyone, on one level or another, is often affected by and would like to eliminate.
