“WorkTime resolved the need to hire an experienced manager to help improve employee productivity”– the owner of a family business.


A family-owned company provides accounting services to SMBs. Previously, the accounting firm employed 25 people, but in recent times the number of employees was reduced to 15 due to hard times. The dismissals were often challenging because business owners had a sense of loyalty to employees hired because of family ties. Sometimes, everyone was too relaxed to exercise strict supervision.

Loyalty and unclear goals contributed to employees’ being unproductive. Without managerial control techniques, the employees did not care about being productive during their working hours. First, the business owners did not have enough grounds to encourage employees who work better and motivate unproductive staff, as there was no evidence of what was going on in the office. It was difficult to tell who’s putting in work, and who’s browsing the web for pleasure. Consequently, business productivity was steadily declining; the owners considered hiring an experienced and high-cost manager to resolve the issue.


Investing the company’s limited resources in a manager was not an option during the crisis. At the same time, the family-owned company needed to maintain a friendly atmosphere. The only way to resolve the issue of disengaged staff without spending a lot of money on managers or ruining the business’s foundation was to implement WorkTime. WorkTime employee monitoring software works perfectly without infringing privacy or straining relationships. It also provides a real picture of employee productivity at the workplace.
