  8. Joy from seo agency says:

    Hi Steve, thanks for making this recommendation, the good thing about it is the fact that it can be done discretely so as not to offend anyone in while carrying out the initiative. It’s true though that we must not focus on this endeavor solely.

  9. Kristine from Bankruptcy Lawyer Monsey says:

    As employees, it is our duty and obligation to uphold the standards of the company we are working for by behaving appropriately. Monitoring the productivity of employees is truly beneficial especially when done discretely but should also be supplemented with incentives, coaching and proper evaluation. I hope that more employers will consider the value of employee engagement, there is almost, always an underlying reason for slacking off because of being demotivated.

  14. Kimberly says:

    Great points on having an employee monitoring software, Steve.

    It is indeed essential for most businesses nowadays considering a lot of employees are wasting a significant amount of productive time. It was even harder for us since we have been outsourcing jobs to people from the other side of the world whom we do not see physically.

    We implemented this software: – It’s not obtrusive. It accurately tracks everyone’s work and gives us an analytics of everyone’s workday. Everyone knows they are monitored and there is full disclosure as to the extent of what is being monitored. This worked well for us. It has even increased our productivity!

  15. Emilia from Printing management software says:

    Thanks for raising this concern, Steve. My previous employer personally checks our activities remotely and I must say that he really instilled discipline among us quite effectively. On the other hand, he also provided us with laptops that we can use for recreation during lull periods. Productivity is truly an important factor in making any business thrive.

  16. CBhushna from AG Infosoft says:

    Thanks and Another idea for increasing productivity is to make lists a part of your everyday routine. For example, every morning make a list of all the things you need to do that day. As the day progresses, mark off each task and add new ones as they come up
