Overtime - how do we make it not a pain?

To maintain the balance between professional and personal life, as well as to fit into budgets, overtime is an exceptional solution. The usual way of reward is through paid time off. Manually managing these types of recoveries is difficult. Oraroo helps you explicitly and transparently manage the flow of overtime, but also recoveries in an easy way for the employee and the manager. Integration with project timekeeping allows the flow to be triggered directly from project management.

Overtime - how do we make it not a pain?
Overtime as an exception and their record as a rule

In the activity of any company, situations arise in which certain projects require more urgent solving and involve working overtime. For example:

  • unexpected cases in daily activity
  • insufficient composition of teams.

Overtime means the hours worked by an employee outside the normal working hours, the one in which the employee performs the work, being at the disposal of the employer. And your responsibility, as a manager, is to manage in a transparent and explicit way the execution and reward of overtime, according to the Labor Code.

How is additional work rewarded?

Thus, the reward of additional work, according to the legislation, is done in two ways:

1. Usually: by paid free hours in the next 90 calendar days, subsequent to the performance of overtime. Under these conditions, the employee benefits from the corresponding salary for the hours worked over the normal working hours.

This way of compensating for overtime is beneficial to both employees and the manager and company. Respects work-life balance and protects colleagues from the risks of overwork. At the same time, managers keep costs in budgeted parameters as much as possible. They are relatively fixed in relation to an employee and any excess impacts the entire company.

2. As an exception: if the previous option is not possible, a salary increase corresponding to the duration of the additional work will be paid. The increase cannot be less than 75% of the basic salary.

Overtime is requested by the manager and is performed with the consent of the employe. Working overtime is a practice used for situations that are not the usual way of working.

An alarm signal for you is when you find that you often ask employees to work overtime. It means that there is a problem of under-capacity, productivity, or planning. The solution is to adjust the capacity. A capacity is unbalanced, either because there is too much work or because people are not productive. Thus, either you add a competent person to the team, or you increase the competence of those you have.
