Employee Time Tracking has been around for a long time, the first timesheet was invented back in 1888 by tech behemoth (now we know it as IBM) since then it is being practiced by every other company but implementation has seen a complete turnaround.
New tools and software have come into being which is significantly helping the companies to improve employee efficiency and organize onsite/virtual teams.
Given this covid-19 epidemic around the world, most employers have allowed their employees to work from home but the biggest challenge being faced by them is to track how much time an employee actually spends on work or simply faking being engaged.
According to a survey the number of meeting hours has considerably risen by 8 to 10% since 2000, on average employees attend 62 hours of meetings in a month and a large chunk of 47% of employees have reportedly claimed half of which is wasted time.
Performance vs Productivity
There is a very thin line between performance and productivity, but Employee Monitoring Software does help you to rightly evaluate the performance and productivity of your employees’ performance defines that he/she has the ability to perform or execute the given task. Contrary to that productivity reflects how efficiently an employee can perform the assigned task.
Time loss = Money loss
A huge amount of time wasted in unproductive meetings could lead to money bleeding, an hour-long meeting with 5 attendees from the top hierarchy (specialist or director level) can be as costly as 338 USD.
