Starting monitoring process

1. My business goals are

Recommendation: Clearly identifying what your business needs/goals are will help you to understand what you want to achieve with the monitoring. For example, I need to keep my working-from-home employees productive or, my CEO has requested that employees build their discipline in certain areas at work.
I need to improve these areas in my business/department:

1. ___________________________________
2. ___________________________________
3.____________________________________

2. My monitoring goals are

Recommendation: Once you have defined the areas that need improvement in your business, you will be clear about your monitoring goals and needs. For example, the goal is to monitor working-form-home employees productivity, or to monitor employees attendance and idle times, etc.
My monitoring goals are:
1. ___________________________________
2. ___________________________________
3.____________________________________

3. Monitoring software requirements and features

Recommendation: Do not get distracted by the array of monitoring software features on the market. The main idea is to choose monitoring features that are necessary to achieve your business goals. For example: first login, last logout, idle and active times, productive and unproductive times.
I need the following monitoring features:
1. ___________________________________
2. ___________________________________
3.____________________________________

6. Creating monitoring policies

Recommendation: Not every business introduces monitoring policies to their employees. However, if you decide to do so, it is important to create monitoring policies that will ensure that specific monitoring requirements are met. Your employees need to be on the same page as well. If you need assistance in creating these documents, request a WorkTime monitoring eBook where you can find monitoring policies, a handbook and consent form ready-to-use samples.

7. Introducing your employees to the monitoring

Note: Not every business announces monitoring to its employees. But if you do so, then you will need a few documents.
To introduce the monitoring process I need the following:
1. Policy
2. Handbooks
3. Consent form
4. Request samples

8. Making commitments, payments and subscriptions

Recommendations: When you are ready to commit, make payments and subscribe, please pay attention to the licensing conditions (cancellation policies, fees, hidden fees e.t.c). If you have any concerns, ask the software providers.
