1Methodology: In February 2017, TSheets commissioned PollFish to conduct a survey of 1,000 U.S workers aged 18+ about their time tracking habits. One of the questions was “Typically, if you submit an incorrect timesheet, what is the margin of error?” and of the 957 respondents, 46% of employees said when they submit an incorrect timesheet, they will add between 15 and 60 minutes to it, and 3% said they added more than 60 minutes. 25% said they take between 15 and 60 minutes off their timesheet. The remainder said “not applicable.”
2Methodology: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: “In 2015, 78.2 million workers age 16 and older in the United States were paid at hourly rates” (source) and in the same year, the average hourly wage for hourly employees in the U.S. was $22.97 (source). According to data collected for TSheets by PollFish in February 2017, 49% of employees who track their time at work admit to time theft of 15 minutes or more. If 49% of the nation’s hourly employees added just 15 minutes each per weekly timesheet that’s ($5.74 x 38,000,000 employees) x 52 weeks = $11,347,180,000.
