Gil Walsh Interiors Enjoys the Perfect ‘Design’ for Payroll, Time and Attendance

Gil Walsh Interiors Enjoys the Perfect ‘Design’ for Payroll, Time and Attendance

Gil Walsh has built her success on amazing interior design. Her extraordinary eye for detail and use of unique colors and textures make each home she decorates beautiful. Six years ago, Gil hired Cathi Spiel to be the Director of Finance for the growing 14-employee company. Spiel arrived at Gil Walsh Interiors and quickly recognized the need to move away from inefficient manual, paper-based check-cutting for payroll to an automated process. When the company adopted the RUN powered by ADP® platform, they managed payroll electronically to simplify the process. But they needed more, so they enhanced their ADP payroll platform by integrating with TSheets time tracking for an automated time and attendance solution. With the combination of TSheets and RUN powered by ADP, Spiel has more freedom to focus on more important finance-related issues.

When employee morale begins to suffer, the signs aren’t always obvious. Here are seven warning signs to watch out for: #1: Increase in turnover. Employees who feel they are treated unfairly are more likely to quit and seek employment elsewhere. Monitor turnover and conduct exit interviews to find out why employees are leaving. Use this information to identify changes you can make to improve your work environment and limit future turnover. #2: Vague exit interviews. Some employees may be reluctant to share the true reasons for their departure since they fear it will affect their eligibility for rehire, or that it will result in a negative reference to a prospective employer. To encourage employees to be forthcoming, reassure them that their honest feedback will help with workplace improvements and that their exit interview report will remain anonymous. During the exit interview, pose open-ended and multi-choice...
