Employee monitoring is the practice of understanding what tasks your team members are working on right now, how long each task takes to complete, and which apps and websites your team members visited throughout the work day. When it comes to remote teams, it’s often impossible to know what everyone is working on. Employees are scattered throughout the globe. Projects are getting started and (hopefully) completed without managerial oversight. And let’s face it. This can be quite scary. After all, you don’t want to pay your employees to watch YouTube videos and Netflix, right?
Chances are, your employees are doing a fine job. But with an employee monitoring strategy in place, you can be sure that projects are being completed on time and on budget.
