    Any advice on a simple fix
is welcome.

Compare with another time source. Which is correct? Are you running ntpd?

Startup/shutdown scripts should load/store time from the hardware clock.

Do you have /etc/adjtime? This file will persist drift information and hardware clock time zone. Try deleting it.

I do not think this is a time zone issue; hwclock displays time in your local time zone even when stored in UTC.
