Basic recommendations for creating work-from-home monitoring policies

Main guidelines

Clearly explain the aim of the work-from-home monitoring policy, what goals you intend to accomplish with the working-from-home arrangement, and ensure that each team member understands both the individual and team roles to be played in achieving the set goals.

Checklist: Main areas to cover in the work-from-home monitoring Policy

To create an effective working-from-home employee monitoring policy, you may need to cover various topics. These policies are fundamental, especially in a remote environment. Most importantly, employees need to understand your expectations clearly. This is why we recommend that you keep your policies as transparent and straightforward as possible. This will help your employees to understand and follow the rules correctly.
Here are the most common points to consider:

Define eligibility

Use this section to specify the departments eligible for the monitoring, determine whom the work-from-home monitoring policy applies to, how many employees will utilize it, or why it’s essential to implement employee monitoring software in your company. Please specify the time required for the working-from-home arrangement, whether it is a short term or long term agreement.

Set working expectations

You may need to enumerate the expectations for monitoring every employee working from home or remotely. For example:
What the expectations of employee productivity would be as a result of the monitoring.
The goals and objectives the company aims to accomplish as a result of the monitoring. (The primary goals of the company may be included)

Make productivity assessments

Explain how productivity and performance would be measured or evaluated, list what metrics the monitoring software will record, i.e., attendance, active and idle time, time spent on the project e.t.c.
Clearly explain to employees how to track their time and ensure they record working time regularly.

Use of company equipment

The policy should specify how employees working from home are expected to manage the equipment provided by the company.
You may need to explain how employees are expected to use company property during/after working hours and break, e.t.c.
If employee monitoring software or VPN is going to be installed on company equipment, please specify.
If the company requires employees to provide their equipment, explain that work-related duties must be carried out during working hours.

Set technical support requirements

Consider including measures employees are expected to take in case of any software malfunction or equipment repairs or replacement.

Outline data protection standards

Clearly explain the purposes of collecting specific data and specify what data will be collected and what measures will be taken to protect collected data.

Define compliance with employee monitoring policies

State that employees are required to review all documentation provided, and all employee monitoring consent forms must be signed.
Establish that employees are required to comply with all monitoring policies and handbooks before the monitoring process.
State that employees will only be allowed to engage in the work process after signing “Employee monitoring policies” and “Employee monitoring handbook.”
