Why restoration workers count on TSheets

Safety comes first for employees and the work they do. While restoration businesses help those in need, employees using TSheets to track time are also letting admins and managers know exactly where they are. This is critical, especially for those working in hazardous environments.

Most employees agree that GPS tracking in the workplace does more good than harm. In a global study by TSheets on GPS tracking in the workplace, workers identify the top four benefits of GPS time tracking:

  1. Tracking mileage and travel time
  2. Ensuring workers get paid what they’re owed
  3. Accountability
  4. Safety
