Biometric Tracking of Public workers attendance effective next Year 2023
Things seems to be changing with many surprises in the system, in circulation is this new Biometric Clock in system to track all Public sector workers who take their salary through the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.
As many institutions are planning on work from home, some are working hard for workers to be in the office from morning till evening.
For those who don’t come to work, you are in trouble.
The hasn’t been any Official release by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department or any orientation for Public sector workers but from the Circulation, the Training of all public sector workers or those to be affected, the orientation will happen soon.
HERE IS THE SUMMARY REPORT FROM ORIENTATION MEETING ABOUT THE BIOMETRIC CLOCK-IN SYSTEM
Administrators of the system
The system will be managed by 7 primary administrators namely:
2. Deputy director
3. Internal Auditor
7. Finance Officer
Date to commence
This system is expected to commence fully within the first week in January 2023.
NB: This system will be linked to Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD)
Time to clock in
Staff are expected to clock-in 4 times daily:
1. 6am to 8am – Clock-In
2. 12:30pm – Clock out
3. 1:30pm – Clock-in
4. 5pm- Clock out
If for any reason you couldn’t Clock in during the 2nd and 3rd time, we will be trained on how to Clock in with our phones.
The system will cater for overtime which starts at 6pm each day. Before overtime allowance will reflect on your payslip it has to be approved by your HoD | HoU.
If you are working in the office after 6pm do not Clock out and Clock in again. Just finish with your work and Clock out.
Security Guards at post for night Duties
Night security will Clock 4 times thus:
1. 6pm Clock-In
4. 6am Clock out
Maternity and paternity Leave
3 months maternity leave and 10 working days paternity leave.
Casual workers who are not paid by GoG (cleaners and labourers) will Clock-In from 6am to 8am.
Cleaners and labourers who are paid by GoG will Clock-In at 6am and Clock out at 12:30pm.
Departments like environmental health and social welfare will Clock-In once in a week. This is due to their field work. They will Clock-In with their phones during field work.
A unique USSD code will be used to Clock-In so any type of phone can be used.
In terms of workshop, seek permission from RCD, Deputy director or HR to notify the system before you leave.
If you apply for leave, HR will notify the system when your leave begins and when you are to resume from leave.
Breastfeeding mothers will Clock-In at 9am and Clock out at 3:30pm.
If you are going out officially as a driver and do not know when you’ll return kindly seek permission from any of the 7 primary administrators.
Monthly Report by workers
Each staff will produce a monthly report from next year onwards.
The device will work 24/7. Either there’s power or no power.
You’ll be paid according to your punctuality at work. It’s pay as you go.
If You’re engaged by any officer for his or her personal reasons it is not considered as overtime.
What do you think about this? Is that the best way to track productivity?
We also know many who come to work earlier than others leave very late yet don’t do anything meaningful at work.
Shouldn’t we be considering a scheme where workers don’t spend the whole day at work. A scheme where someone come to work for 2hrs and Leave, 3hrs and Leave.
We think that will be able to eliminate Loss of productive hours and reduce the rate of unemployment.
If you can work 2hrs a day, just that then you leave, another also come to do the rest, you don’t remain at the office and be reading news papers or working lottery.
Well…. You can leave your comment below.
