One of the benefits of employee time clocks is that they help to build accountability into project management for both individuals and teams.
One of the benefits for interns is that time tracking software helps them to document hours worked, which is part of the process that they need to complete to receive college credit. So many work hours equal one college credit. Sophisticated time tracking software embraces the virtual side of internships.
A growing trend in business is the adoption of internships that are not face-to-face. That means that time tracking software must be capable of handling situations where employees travel and interns that are 100% virtual. The virtual element allows time tracking for interns who located in different cities and even different countries. This technology opens up the possibilities for both interns and companies.
The benefit to interns is that they are no longer tied to just open positions within their community. They can now focus on companies that offer the best opportunities for learning and networking. For companies, the benefit may be greater. Businesses are now able to recruit talent from top schools and programs worldwide. This is an opportunity that strengthens the company’s future potential.
Virtual time tracking is a win-win for both companies and interns.
