With the world discovering alternative ways of working without human contact, remote jobs are getting more popular by the day. Due to the pandemic, most big companies are shifting their focus on effectively managing employees while allowing them to work from home. Even though it has become a popular choice for employees and big companies, there are still some misconceptions about the productivity of remote employees. Some managers believe that in-office employees are more productive than those working from home.
Several studies over the past few months have shown that productivity while working remotely is better than in an office setting. On average, those who work from home spend 10 minutes less each day being unproductive and are 47% more productive. According to a ConnectSolutions survey, 77% of individuals who work remotely at least a few times each month are more productive, with 30% performing more work in less time and 24% doing more work in the same amount of time.
How CloudDesk Can Help Monitor Remote Employees
CloudDesk employee monitoring software makes it easy to check on your employees who work from home as it helps find out how they spend their time and optimize their workflow to help them increase productivity. CloudDesk is built with features that automatically track many key productivity metrics of remote employees to make the monitoring process a breeze. Managers can check out employees’ activities, like idle, meeting, and productive time spent, web and app usage, and view randomly recorded screenshots at any time, from anywhere, using their smartphones.
Offer Flexible Working Hours
A flexible work schedule allows employees to make their own schedules, and thus, balance work and other parts of their lives. Instead of working from 9 to 5, employees with flexible schedules can start and end their work day at different times. CloudDesk helps modernize businesses by enabling remote employees to work around their personal lives rather than the other way around. Identify time spent on projects at an individual and group level. Assign hourly rates to involved employees to estimate project costs.
