Employee Monitoring is the use of various methods of workplace surveillance to gather information about the activities and locations of staff members. It allows a business to track employee activities, monitor the safety and productivity of the employees, and monitor worker engagement with workplace related tasks.
The data proactively gathered 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, From the dishonest unethical employee who steals time and money from the business to the redefining of unprofitable processes in monitoring employee actions, employee monitoring allows for the growth of financial profits from a small investment.
The monitoring of employees can help in the protection of employees and it can help as protection in litigation by employees for job related issues such as failing to perform, illegal activities and harassment claims. The main intention is to prevent unacceptable behavior in the first place and, should that effort fail, to curtail the behavior before it can have a negative effect on the business.
