Automate the annualization of working time



Annualization of working time : what is it?


The annualization of working time is a working time arrangement over an overall period of 12 months, during which the employee will have weeks of high activity or low activity that compensate each other.
The objective is to organize the employee's schedule according to more or less active periods of activity.

This system is governed by the law, and according to the collective agreement concluded, restrictions must be observed in terms of maximum working hours, or the definition of weekly hours thresholds for the initiation or not of overtime.

Time tracking


The annualization of working time implies a follow-up of the hours declared.
Thanks to our tool, you can see at a glance if there are unspecified weeks for each employee.
The image below shows you the hours declared each week.
It also allows employees to be restarted if they forget to fill in the timesheet.



Follow-up Annualization


The annualization work time tool allows you to track the number of hours worked per year.
Following the reference period, you view the total hours declared and the normal hours worked outside of overtime.
On the other hand, the annualization of working time implies the follow-up of the leave planned in the card of the annualization.
This task can be complex, especially since certain sick leave absences are not counted as annualization rest.
This is why we offer a dashboard to control the various indicators.



Compensatory rest


In general, hours worked beyond the annualization quota are recovered at the end of the period, in the form of compensatory rest. These hours can be paid according to the collective agreement.
We offer you the opportunity to evaluate the situation during the period.
Suppose that at the middle of the year the employee has done more time than expected...
Thanks to the Time spent synthesis dashboard, you visualize the number of hours worked over a given period.
In parallel, the software gives you the opportunity to credit, either the overtime counter for recovery, or credit a leave type counter.
Offering hours of rest allows you to regulate hours of annualization during the period.



Entering hours


The software gives you several options for entering working hours.







Time sheet completed by the Employee

Thanks to our online time sheet tool, employees can enter their working hours independently.
The software offers the possibility to fill in its timesheet as soon as Monday, so as to put in the draft and submit his timesheet at the end of the week.
This allows the employee to be responsive in entering hours.
However, you have the option of setting the time stamp validation frequency in a weekly or monthly cycle.
In the latter case, the software offers a timesheet containing every day of the month.

Time sheet completed by the Manager

In organizations where employees are not assigned to computer workstations, the tool offers the possibility of filling in the employee timesheets by the Manager.
In fact, the Manager can access all timesheets for employees to enter work hours.

Recurrence Timesheet

Why enter timesheets when working time is known in advance ?
JOUROFF has implemented the concept of recurrence which allows the pre-filling of the timesheet.
The employee saves 90% of his time because the software is responsible for filling in his timesheet.

Mass planning

In order to fill the timesheets several weeks in advance, we offer the Planning Profile feature.
A planning profile represents a base of working time.
It allows for mass planning several weeks in advance.
This consists of explicitly selecting the weeks to be completed, then validating to fill several timesheets with one click.

Annualization of working time : calculation rule


The calculation of annual quota (the number of hours worked per year) takes into account several factors :

The definition of a reference period, usually the calendar year.
The number of working days during the reference period
Weekly rest days
Public holidays counting
The count of paid leave

Then, as part of the annualization monitoring, the working time must be counted down over the reference period.
This work can be tedious, especially since work contracts or periods of absence may vary from one employee to another.
This is why JOUROFF (Time Management Software) has developed an annualization monitoring dashboard which allows to control leave still to take for meet the annualization quota.

In parallel, the Annualized Tracking tool offers you an Annual Counter dashboard, so you can control the hours declared week by week.



Annualization of working time and overtime


As a general rule, the annualisation of working time implies a count of overtime at the end of the reference period.
The overtime noted may be subject to a rest period or remuneration according to the collective agreement.

However, some agreements provide for the triggering of overtime during the reference period when the high limit is exceeded during a busy week.
In this context, the JOUROFF software proposes a mechanism based on thresholds to be set according to the contract of each employee.
