A timekeeper (also spelled time keeper and time-keeper) is an instrument or person that measures the passage of time.
In the case of a job occupation, the timekeeper is a person who measures time with the assistance of a clock or stopwatch. In addition, the timekeeper records time, time taken, or time remaining during events such as sports matches.
A timekeeper is often referred to as a time clock, which tracks employee time. Collecting such data gives employers insight into their workforce. They can then make operational decisions to increase productivity and reduce labor costs.
