Employers across the globe are started accelerating remote work culture in an effort to limit exposure to ‘coronavirus’. But, monitoring a remote team is a bit challenging yet necessary to run a business successfully!
Keeping an eye on work from home employees can increase productivity of your workforce and hence, have a huge positive impact on your organisation. Here are 4 intelligent tricks to monitor work from home employees; take a look-
- Assign project with deadlines
Assign tasks within a team with realistic deadlines and regular reminders to notify your team member about a deadline. It helps you to check the progress of tasks made at every step and to set up a transparent team culture. Make them understand their contribution to the project. Share your expectations and feedback to the team on a regular basis.
- Utilize attendance software to track employee attendance
Attendance management software is necessary to track employee working hours accurately and for smooth payroll processing. Tracking hours of work from home employees is difficult without a cloud-based attendance system. Using the automated attendance system, HR can easily manage a remote workforce that leads to drop in payroll related errors.
- Invest in timesheet management system
When an employee works on multiple projects, then the online timesheet management system gives you a clear idea of all project related activities to check progress and meet deadlines on time. This HR software module keeps a check on who has done what on a specific day and estimates of how much time was taken to complete various tasks within a project.
- End of day wrap-up summary
Asking your team to send a wrap-up summary report by the end of each working day gives detailed information about the productivity of each team member. When your remote staff knows that they are being monitored, then it will make work from home employees more focused and productive.
