A lot goes on at your facility every day. Some hours are busier than others but at the end of the day, some important closing tasks should be addressed. We want to address Money Handling. Do you have more than one person assigned to closing out at the end of the day? Bigger question, do you have your policies in writing and are those policies followed?
We asked our Networking Group how the money handling is processed at their facilities, or more to the point ~ who is handling the money at their facility. Here are the top three responses
- Manager(s) are the ONLY ones who touch the money and are allowed to z the till out and close out at the end of each day (shift).
- There is 1 continuous cash drawer throughout the day. Each new shift employee must count the money and balance the drawer (large bills are placed in the safe). 1 person will z out and close at the end of the day.
- The City Finance Manager is the ONLY one who touches the money and they clear it out each day.
However your facility decides to handle the money, we cannot recommend enough to have this policy in writing and to adhere to your policy. We all want to be trusting and we all want to believe we have the best employees.
