One of the key reasons for this change is the need to create more consistency in the way we do things from a HR and payroll perspective. This will become more and more crucial as we continue to grow!

By doing your timesheet daily, this will allow us to better understand who is working where which in turn will help with budgeting, forecasting and resource allocation. It will also assist our finance team to process your pay more easily!

Absolutely! Speak to the P&C team or your manager/leading hand if you have any questions or concerns about doing your timesheet correctly.

We’re all busy and we all forget things from time to time. Don’t worry! The period after 1 May 2024 isn’t about “getting people in trouble”, it’s about helping you to get in the habit of doing your timesheet at the end of each day, so when UKG is rolled out for timesheets in August, you’re ready to go!

Like Deputy, you will be able to access UKG on a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or computer. 


Every Birdon employee will be given a unique Employee ID which you will be able to use to log in to your account. From there, you can change your personal details, put in leave requests and of course, do your timesheet (daily)!


We will keep everybody posted about upcoming training to ensure we are comfortable with the new system by the time it’s ready to go.

I still have questions/feedback – where can I go?

Don’t keep anything to yourself! Submit your questions via the link below or speak to a member of the People & Culture team (Jack, Bronte, Ivette, Shay, Marty). We look forward to hearing from you!
