Employee Monitoring is the act of employers surveying employee activity through different surveillance methods. Organizations engage in employee monitoring for different reasons such as to track performance, to avoid legal liability, to protect trade secrets, and to address other security concerns.
Employee monitoring allows a business to track employee activities and monitor worker engagement with workplace related tasks. A business using employee monitoring on a computer can measure productivity, track attendance, ensure security and collect proof of hours worked.
Private Eyes Inc. has Investigators who serve in all areas of North Carolina including the city’s of but not limited to Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Greenville, and Asheville. Our experts uses the newest state of the art technology in monitoring software and we are continually adding a new implementation, but the practice itself has been around for a long time. In fact, the first timesheet was invented in 1888 (and would lead to the tech behemoth we know as IBM!). Now, we can track not just how much time people spend at work, but how productive they are, monitor internet usage, which applications they use most, what tasks they struggle with, when they work best, and more.
Thanks to modern technology, companies can monitor almost 100 percent of employee activity and communication, including:
Internet and app usage
Computer screen recording
GPS tracking by vehicle
Location tracking by access badge
This data transforms the decision-making process. You can determine everything from appropriate salary, rates, and product prices, to optimal team size, tool-kit, and work process. Not to mention, if there’s anything you should know about a specific employee (such as, Jane has gotten much less efficient in the past month, or Joe has really accelerated his work rate lately), you’ll know objectively—not intuitively.
Despite all these benefits, employee monitoring is a contentious topic. Call us for a confidential consultation and we’ll share everything you need to know before you consider implementing it. We have a proven track record of expertise and have years of experience.
