Why active and idle time monitoring?
Employees can easily get distracted at work – chatting, surfing the net for personal purposes, visiting social networking sites, or taking long coffee breaks during the hours they are paid to be active. This could lead to the misuse of working hours and money loss. To put it more precisely, Harvard Business School conducted a study that found that businesses lose over $100 billion every year in wages paid to employees for idle time. Hence, the need for employers to monitor:
- Employee Idle time, which is the time spent away from one’s PC/laptop.
- Employee Active time; the time spent on PC/laptop performing work-related activities.
What are the benefits of using Idle/Active time monitoring software?
1. Boost overall employee productivity
Through active and idle time analytics provided by monitoring software, managers and employees can gain insights into high-and low-productivity trends and help to identify peak performance periods and areas that need improvement.
2. Monitor in real-time
Being an automated system, active and idle time monitoring software can flawlessly monitor and measure work activity in real-time without relying on human input.
3. Stay updated on the progress of tasks during working hours
Active/idle time monitoring software helps to track progress on specific tasks. Employers can determine how many hours employees spend on tasks when computers are being used and then use this as a benchmark to better plan, execute, and allocate workload more efficiently to keep teams productive.
4. Efficiently analyze and supervise employee activity levels
Monitoring software is a great tool for employers or managers to analyze and supervise employee activity levels, recognize employees who are performing well, and address those who are being idle or lagging.
5. Get detailed and complete reports on activity
Detailed reports show if employees spend their working hours performing assigned tasks and the exact number of hours employees were active or idle. It also helps assess whether there is a need to reduce or increase the amount of time spent on specific projects and activities.
6. Establish corporate policies with detailed monitoring reports
Another scenario could arise when reports show employees who use the web for personal reasons and are distracted by online shopping or planning holidays. The information received could establish a corporate policy on non-business-related activities carried out during the paid hours.
