Construction payroll and HR FAQs

How do you keep track of construction employees’ hours?

If you’re a contractor or in the construction industry, you can keep track of your employees’ hours using either paper timesheets and punch clocks or mobile time tracking apps that have GPS and geofencing capabilities. Digital solutions make it easier to track employees on multiple job sites, thereby minimizing the risk of mistakes.

How do you do construction accounting?

Construction accounting requires an understanding of basic accounting practices – debits, credits, financial statements, etc. – as well as job costing, which helps manage the many variables of running a project-based business. A construction payroll service that is capable of paying employees across multiple states and unions may also be helpful, especially if you want to save time.

What is a construction cost report?

A construction cost report is a detailed summary of all of the costs associated with a specific project, including labor. Tracking this data allows project managers to monitor actual labor costs against budgeted amounts and make informed decisions to ensure the project stays on budget.

How do you control costs on construction projects?

Tracking the physical completion of a job across milestones can help control construction project costs. When the first milestone is achieved, look at your material, labor and overhead expenses. If these costs went above what was originally forecast, you can correct the issues that caused the overage in successive milestones and bring the project back within budget. Another way to control costs is to spread overhead expenses among multiple jobs that might use the same equipment.
