How Skanska ensures attendance tracking is easy and safe

The fifth largest construction company in the world, with projects including United Head Nations, Royal London Hospital and New York City Subway. Skanska operates in 11 countries with around 34,000 employees.

Making attendance easy and safe

Unable to use their central clock-in device for safety reasons, and concerned about attendance accuracy, Skanska decided to switch to an online time clock app instead. Then, they found Jibble.

Impact

  • Accurate
    attendance data
  • Safe
    clocking-in during COVID-19

Their challenges included:

  • Unable to use central clock-in device due to the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Inaccurate attendance reports of staff and subcontractors;
  • Potentially fraudulent time entries;
  • Lack of real time attendance data required for health and safety compliance and emergencies;

In order to comply with safety regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic, construction staff weren’t able to use their central clock-in system due to the risk of spreading disease. With thousands of employees across multiple sites, Skanska was struggling to ensure that attendance was being recorded safely.

It was also crucial for managers to find a way to record attendance accurately, as it was a requirement for health and safety compliance and emergencies. They needed a system that allowed for safe, easy, and accurate time tracking, without the possibility of fraudulent entries.

Unable to use their central clock-in system for safety reasons, and concerned about attendance accuracy, Skanska decided to switch to an online time clock app instead. Then, they found Jibble.

The solution

Accurate attendance guaranteed

Guided by Jibble’s onboarding team, Skanska quickly got their team started. Employees are now able to clock-in with facial recognition and GPS tracking, which ensures that attendance data is accurate and anti-fraud. The team clocks in within seconds with a selfie. If Jibble doesn’t recognise their face, or if they clock in at the wrong location, an alert is sent to their manager.

Timesheets and reports are automatically generated, and is accessible to managers in real time from the Jibble web app or on their mobile phones. Overtime can also be automatically calculated to make payroll easy.

Working on a construction site, the internet can sometimes be weak. Offline mode allows for employees to continue tracking attendance, even when the internet cuts out.

Increased safety compliance

Skanska employees clock-in through the Jibble app, which they have downloaded on their mobile device. With everyone’s phone being their own personal clock-in device, attendance tracking is now safety compliant.

The bottom line

Without the need for a central clock-in device, and with features like facial recognition and GPS tracking, Jibble ensures time and attendance tracking for Skanska is accurate, safe, and wonderfully easy.
