What Is an Employee Sheet?
As its name suggests, it is a sheet that's specifically meant for all things that are employee-related. This can be anything from timesheets meant for recording an employee's hourly progress, to spreadsheets used for keeping track of employee payroll. All information found in this type of document is used by companies for one purpose or another. But know that whatever that information is or whatever it's going to be used for will always have something to do with one or more employees.
How to Create Employee Sheets in Apple Pages
1. Open Up Apple Pages
Launch Apple Pages and click on the New Document button to get you started. The template chooser will then pop up in a new window and from there you'll have to use it in order to search for the sheet template you need. Know that you can always start with a blank document if you wish to do so. If you don't have an iOS device that allows you to use the program, then there are a number of alternatives that you can use.
2. Know What Type of Employee Sheet You Need to Make
Remember that there are many different types of sheets that you can possibly make and that each of them has its own specific purpose. It is important that you know which one you'll need so that it'll be easier for you to choose what template to download or how to go about in making it from scratch. So decide whether it's going to be a timesheet for timekeeping purposes, an attendance sheet for keeping track of employee attendance, a payroll sheet for taking note of salary payments or whatever sheet that's employee-related.
3. Gather the Information You Need
Since you already know the purpose of the sheet that you're going to make, you should be able to figure out where you need to get the information it needs. So let's say that you're making one specifically for displaying information on employee payroll. What you can do is to make a request from your accounting department for the different names and numerical figures that you have to type into the document. Always make sure that you're getting your information from the right sources.
4. Know the Format
It is important that you know what format your employee sheet should have as you need to make sure that all of the information is in the right place. If you have no clue as to how you should go about it, then an easy solution is for you to look for samples of the type of sheet that you need to make. Doing so will tell you everything from what font and font size that you need to use, to the type of information the sheet needs to display and how it's all supposed to be arranged.
5. Go Through the Sheet
Before you print out the sheet, you will need to go through it to see if there are any errors that you need to fix. Start by checking the accuracy of the information you typed in. Also, check if there's anything that you may have forgotten to include. Lastly, see to it that there are no grammar or spelling errors before saving and printing the document.
