Employee productivity is at the heart of the engine we call a “company”, it’s the fuel that allows a business to run and make a profit. But as a business owner, as a leader, how can you make sure the efficiency of your employees won’t falter?
Having an objective measurement of your employee’s productivity can help a great deal in a number of ways, and that is the insight Remente’s productivity monitoring software enables you.
By using employee productivity monitoring to monitor your organization, members of management will be able to track the performance of employees and identify both outstanding and underperforming workers. Thus, allowing you to see which employees need extra attention and coaching in their work, but also to be able to reward the superstars.
Retaining qualified and great performing employees has never been more important. While keeping your company’s top performers motivated, employers can at the same time identify their best workers who can help spread that productivity throughout the organization and inspire fellow workers to increase team motivation.
Productivity tracking is NOT surveillance
“Monitoring software” sounds very intimidating to some, something straight out of 1984, a measure taken by overbearing managers to restrict and oppress individuals within the organization. Employee productivity tracking is anything but.
Remente is completely transparent with no hidden data gathering processes. The employee productivity tracking data is instead gathered through monthly, company-wide, anonymous surveys and private wellbeing check-ins.
Using Remente’s tools does not mean surveilling a single individual. To maintain the integrity of your employees, Remente’s employee productivity tracking software doesn’t collect data from a group with less than five individuals. In this case, you will be shown the total result of your company. Useful for you, safe for your employees.
Measuring employee productivity is meant to streamline areas of business and help you help your employees improve themselves. They allow administrators to analyze the employee’s behavioral data to improve workflow efficiency.
Pros and cons of using employee productivity tracking
Like with everything, there are of course both pros and cons of using employee productivity monitoring tools. Here follows some arguments for both sides in order for you as an employer to make the right decision for your business.
Pros of measuring employee productivity

The key to a successful implementation of employee productivity tracking is communication. The leadership of the company must be transparent about the reasons behind tracking productivity and the employees must keep an open mindset in order to see how it can benefit them in the long run. Clear and transparent communication is essential to make sure none of the potential cons occurs. It’s also vital to use employee productivity tracking not just to measure productivity but also wellbeing at the workplace as productivity and employee wellbeing are intertwined.
