“WorkTime dissolved the need to hire an experienced manager for improving employee productivity.” – Says the owner of a family business.
A family-owned business provides accounting services to SMBs. The accounting company used to employ 25 people, but lately the amount of staff has been cut off to 15 employees due to business hard times, the dismissals often being unreasonable. The business owners established a loyal atmosphere among employees hired due to family ties, sometimes too relaxed to provide a reasonable supervision.
Managerial loyalty and unclear goals caused employees’ unproductive behavior. Without developed managerial control techniques, staff do not care about performing productively during their working hours. To begin with, business owners do not have enough grounds to encourage employees who work better and motivate unproductive staff, as there is no vivid picture of what is going on in the office: who is working and who is browsing the web just for pleasure. What is more, business productivity constantly decreasing, the owners consider hiring an experienced and expensive manager to resolve the issue.
Investing company’s limited resources into external manager is not an option during a crisis. Moreover, the family-owned company wants to preserve the friendly atmosphere. There is a way to resolve the issue of disengaged staff without spending much costs on outer managerial staff, nor ruining the loyal approach of the business. WorkTime employee monitoring software preserves non-infringing relations; moreover, it provides a real picture of employee productivity at workplace.

- The issue of the real office situation resolved, the software reports showed the productivity level of each and every employee;
- Mutual professional trust has been gained without the need for micromanagement, preserving established loyalty.
