Employers versus remote employees

Employers and employees are two groups whose interests do not always match. Theoretically, all people in a company work together for the common success, but the reality often differs from the original assumptions.

As a result, some employees do the minimum of what is expected of them, while the employers feel that they should stand behind every employee and look at their hands. It gets even worse when employees work remotely. Is it possible to do something to make the relationship between supervisors and subordinates more transparent? How to make sure that supervisors do not constantly question the involvement of remote employees, but also that remote employees do not exploit the situation by doing much less while working from home? It can be done using IT systems for work monitoring (e.g. Statlook software).

All information about remote work in one place

Monitoring does not necessarily mean constant observation with cameras or constant looking at employees' monitors. Software that improves the management of remote employees allows for collecting, storing and analyzing important information about work. Using Statlook, it is possible to monitor the activity of remote employees working both with classic desktop applications and on the Internet. You can easily identify any interruptions in work, check the connected external drives and operations on them. You can also analyze the use of productive and unproductive applications and websites.

Check and help remotely – IT is easy with Statlook

Remote worker management is a much wider concept than just monitoring. Home workers' managers should be able to asses and verify both the time and quality of their subordinates’ work. All the data should be available in one place and accessed remotely. Here Statlook comes to your aid once again - it allows you to manage employees’ requests (tickets) and offers a remote connection tool (remote desktop - Direct PC) with many useful functions that can be used to help remote users without disturbing their work.

Common sense

The goal of Statlook system is to improve the work of companies. In everyday work, it speeds up and improves management, help and communication, introducing transparency between employers and remote employees.

It is important to keep common sense when supervising remote work, and most importantly, to use professional monitoring software, which will ensure that law and regulations are not violated. Some applications can continuously record employee’s screen - this type of continuous monitoring, without any serious reason, is not allowed in many countries. Another example is monitoring of the content of electronic mail - it raises objections of employees and often causes more problems than provides benefits.

Statlook system collects only statistical data, without collecting information about the content, which makes it an excellent analytical tool. It does not interfere with the privacy of employees. Statlook is a guarantee of professionalism in managing remote employees.
