Significant money waste in big companies

Large companies with thousands of employees are often faced with such a situation: employees wasting their working time doing unrelated work and ultimately costing the company money. Although the company's overall performance seemed to be good enough, there were some loopholes. If every employee spent at least 30 minutes of every working day doing personal activities instead of working, it may seem insignificant, but over time, the company can lose a considerable amount of money. Employee monitoring software helps address this issue by recording the time spent on non-related work activities and these activities.

Solution - WorkTime

WorkTime solution successfully helped this major health care organization. After the installation of WorkTime, it was discovered that approximately 5 % of the overall employee time was spent on social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Google+). One of the most widely used weekly reports was "Top 5 Facebook Users." These reports were available to all employees every week, and the performance levels improved significantly.

Money saved

WorkTime reports showed that almost 5% of the employees spent their time on social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Google+). For such a big company, 5% is equivalent to 250 employees' salaries, which means that 250 salaries had been paid for nothing. The company decided to provide weekly monitoring reports to all employees, allowing employees to see and improve their performance levels. What's more, the company was able to save money.
