Lots has been said in recent years about how employee monitoring software can benefit employers and their companies. But what you may not realize is that it can also benefit employees too.
That may sound odd, but the fact of the matter is that there are several ways that you can use employee monitoring software to your advantage:
- Track time spent on tasks and projects
The data employee monitoring software like WE Controlio provides will let you see exactly how much time you spend on any given task. By comparing that data you can check if you’re completing tasks faster or slower than normal.
If there is a significant difference when you compare the data, you know that either you’ve done something differently that works great – or there’s a problem somewhere that’s slowing you down. Because WE Controlio monitors all activity including app usage and websites visited, you can check if you were distracted or there was anything else that affected your work should the need arise.
- Compare with others
Another way to use the data from WE Controlio is to compare the time you spend on tasks with other employees. This can be mutually beneficial as it will let both parties figure out whether or not there is anything they could be doing differently to improve their performance.
The reports that WE Controlio generates can help on that front. With them you’ll have an easy way to compare your activity with the activity of other employees and see if there are any major differences.
- Monitor productivity
In addition to performance, WE Controlio can provide insights into your productivity. It measures a productivity score for each employee – and you can use yours to keep track of exactly how productive you are, and whether or not it changes over time.
Monitoring productivity can be particularly helpful should you take steps to try to improve it. When you do, you’ll be able to track compare your productivity before and after to see just how big of an impact it has been.
- Improve security and act as proof
Last but not least, employee monitoring can help improve security for employees as much as it does for the company. The fact that employee activity is tracked makes it less likely for security issues to crop up, and even if they are it is less likely that you’ll be inadvertently implicated.
The data from employee monitoring can act as proof in various situations. It can exonerate you from blame if there is a security breach, or even prove that you are not responsible for any delays in work being completed.
At the end of the day, employee monitoring software can be quite helpful – if you take advantage of its data as well as the capabilities it brings to the table. By giving you insights into your own activity and behavior, it could help you to improve your performance and become far more efficient at your job.
