Let's get started!


There’s something I think we can all agree on: the Internet is a massive information repository that we can spend many hours peeling at the surface of its content – just to find out that we barely scratched the surface.

Employees are constantly being distracted by this ubiquitous medium that surrounds our daily life. So how do we keep ourselves and our employees focused and motivated?



Discovering Time Wasting Activities

If you let bad habits be, they will become worse. Start off by identifying websites that are detrimental to your business. Install employee web monitoring software on their computers and monitor their Internet activities.



How do I find out if my employees are wasting company time?

There are two ways to identify how productive your employees are. The method below is recommended for companies where the employees work using computers. You will need to install a tracking software to track their PC activities.

Find out how much time they are spending on work-related applications

Not everyone is going to spend every second of their work hour working away for you. There is an expectation that your employees should spend at least 50% of their time doing their work.

When you are tracking your employees' PC activities, make sure you can run a report that shows you the time spent on their applications.

Here is an example report (Top N application by Browsing time) from BrowseReporter that clearly shows that this employee was spending most of his time on Word - a program that is related to his work.
