For those who bill by the hour, timesheets are the bane of their existence. While the Anomaly and Crispin dudes work out a new industry compensation model, for now agency folks are doomed to continue tracking their time. Considering this is a profession filled with creative types, it stands to reason there are some tardy people. Avenue A/Razorfish is going all Hester Prynne 2.0 on them. Its HR department in New York has set up a flat-screen TV that flashes offenders’ photos with a message that reads, for example, “I haven’t done my timesheet in 3 weeks.” An agency rep said the tactic is paying off, with some more diligence on the part of the offenders.
