How to monitor wellbeing and productivity in remote workforces

Before the coronavirus outbreak, working from home was a luxury for most companies, an opportunity to give your employees some flexibility in their working lives. A third of US companies allowed employees to work from home at least once a week, using cloud-based applications, video conferencing software and collaborative platforms to get the job done from a distance.

In the radically different landscape of COVID-19, employers have no choice but to allow their employees to work from home, full-time. Managing a remote team comes with its own set of challenges, specifically, monitoring the productivity and wellbeing of a workforce displaced over a great distance.

Research from Veriato reveals the top reasons why managers dislike a remote working set up:

  • 49% of managers dislike the ability to be able to talk face-to-face with their teams
  • 22% of managers dislike the lack of accountability
  • 26% dislike the reduced levels of focus among remote workers
  • 22% believe their workforces are slacking off

In their latest report, ‘Productivity and Engagement Monitoring: Metric-Driven Solutions for Managing Employees Working from Home’, Veriato reveals how the key challenges managers face in supervising remote workforces can be solved with remotely deployed, metric-driven software. Such solutions allow managers to monitor both the productivity and wellbeing of their employees from a distance, with incredible levels of detail.
