Because that could be a good thing. Organizational momentum can be a powerful thing.

The Risks of Using Paper Time Sheets and Time Cards

nettime solutions

Risk is often thought of as something that happens from the outside –– such as a natural catastrophe or economic slump. Yet risk exists within your own business. And if you still use paper time sheets and time cards with your employees, you may be exposing your payroll process to a great deal of risk. Take employee time theft, for example.
