The Challenge:

How to effectively measure employee productivity

Businesses need to understand how employees get work done, who is the most productive and why, and what habits lead to top performance. Traditional employee monitoring software has been effective at illuminating the minutiae of what employees do, but often does so at the risk of employee privacy and morale. How does a business transform employee monitoring from a focus on oversight to a focus on productivity and efficiency while respecting employee privacy?

The Solution:

ActivTrak – Workforce analytics and employee monitoring

The workplace has evolved and employee monitoring software needs to evolve with it. ActivTrak delivers visibility into how time is being spent, giving organizations a data-driven way to assess workloads, processes, and resources. Built with employee privacy in mind, ActivTrak’s employee monitoring software provides flexible configuration options to enable transparency and collaboration to help everyone improve productivity.

Our Approach to Employee Monitoring

Improving productivity requires the collection and monitoring of data to establish a baseline upon which you can measure improvement.
We know employee monitoring and activity analysis have a mixed history and association with surveillance and heavy oversight.
ActivTrak intends to change that by focusing on the real output of employee monitoring: improved productivity.

We designed ActivTrak from an ethical standpoint:

with the guiding principles of transparency, collaboration and informed insight.
We’ve intentionally developed a powerful platform that focuses on the collection of contextual data, avoiding intrusive employee monitoring technologies like keystroke logging and video surveillance.

We challenge the users of our product to join us on our journey to move employee monitoring from the age of oversight and into the results and data-driven space that is productivity insights and optimization of work.
