Overview of TimeClocks

TimeClocks are used by many hospitals and care homes today across the UK. Historically they were only used to ensure accurate payroll, however today with multi-professional teams delivering care across flexible settings; TimeClocks are embraced as a means of providing vital real-time total workforce visibility to support operational workforce deployment for safer and more flexible staffing.

How do TimeClocks work and what is the benefit to us?
