If you’re either a business owner or a manager with employees that you’re in charge of, then you know the importance of making sure that you’re employees are acting appropriately and performing as expected. Today I want to quickly go over how to monitor an employee.
Fact is that although we tend to trust those who work for us, there are times when they aren’t acting as we want them to. Billions of dollars are lost every year from employee theft and mis-used time. It’s important that you protect your business from this.
There are two incredibly effective ways of keeping tabs on your employees – computer monitoring and cell phone monitoring.
How To Monitor An Employee
Both of the above give you a great way to monitor an employee. They let you see how they are using company resources and company time.
For example, computer monitoring will allow you to see what they’re doing online and if they’re wasting time on the internet. You can also make sure that their communications with other through email are appropriate or not.
And this software can be installed on any computer. You can look at the computer activity from any other computer whenever you want to – you DON’T need to be at the actual computer you’re monitoring to go through the activity records.
Cell phone monitoring software gives you a powerful way to see what your employees are doing on their phone – a great tool if you have employees that you provide phones to. You are able to see their text messages, records on their phone calls, any web surfing from the phone and a lot more.
A great feature is the GPS location tracking that lets you see where the phone is at all times. If you expect your employees to be somewhere at a certain time, this lets you see if they’re where they are supposed to be.
