When employee monitoring was first brought to light, it is important for a lot of people including the employers were against it. They didn’t like the idea of keeping tabs on their workforce and they were right at that time. However, now that social media has become a huge phenomenon and people are spending a large chunk of their time on them, the effectiveness of work has slowed down significantly. Time wasting has become a huge problem in organizations. Some of the companies have tried blocking social media websites, but that just doesn’t work. Employees find multiple ways to access the content they want and there is very little an employer can do about it. Realizing that they are powerless against this sudden surge in social media usage, most of the employers have already started to keep an eye on their employees, so that they can see which one of them are wasting their time in the workplace. If you haven’t done this already, then we advise you to the same because if left unnoticed, things will get out of hand, as more employees will begin to slack off at work, and overall performance will take a huge hit.
