Increased use of monitoring software as the US workforce becomes more virtual

Thu, 31 May 2012 12:20:17 EST

Over 23% of the US workforce telecommute and this is expected to rise to 43% by 2016. One of the barriers that prevents companies from moving to telework is trust that their workforce are working effectively when they are not coming into the office regularly.

Time Doctor is an example of internet monitoring  and time management software designed to monitor remote workers and make sure that companies can really trust that their teams are working even when working remotely.

'It's like analytics for your workday' says Liam Martin, co-founder of TimeDoctor.com which launched in April 2012. 'You know exactly when your team is on a break and when they are working, and you can confirm this through monitoring technology'. The software tracks websites visited, so you know exactly how long your employees are on Facebook each day. It also has the option of tracking screenshots of the person's computer screen.

Of course there are significant privacy concerns with monitoring workers on their home computer. It is common practice to monitor work computers, but there is usually no mechanism for companies to monitor staff activities when working from home. Time Doctor tries to overcome the privacy issues by allowing staff to turn on and off tracking when they wish. Of course if they turn off the tracking then their time will not be counted as working hours.
