Frequently asked questions about remote workforce management:

What is remote workforce management?

Remote workforce management is a method of employee monitoring that allows a business to manage remote employees and teams. Typically, remote workforce management starts with gathering user activity data, delivering views of that data to administrators to allow remote managers to see insights on productivity, communication, collaboration, and other critical business metrics. Remote workforce management is a unique form of employee monitoring as it helps to handle the exclusive needs of remote employees.

Why is workforce management important?

Workforce management is important because without it managers lack the visibility they need to truly understand key performance metrics critical to business success.

Having a remote workforce presents unique challenges: creating team cohesion, ensuring remote teams are collaborating appropriately, ensuring that individuals have the tools they need to do their work the most efficiently, just to name a few. Remote workforce solutions give you the best visibility into individual and team performance, reducing the risk of creating a workforce that is unproductive, inconsistent, or unbalanced. These issues can lead to unnecessary employee attrition, a decrease in employee engagement, or overall organizational failure.

How do you effectively manage a remote workforce?

By collecting and analyzing remote worker user activity and using those insights to determine if your employees and teams are meeting critical productivity goals. Remote workforce management software, like ActivTrak, can help you manage your remote workforce by correlating critical metrics around time management, website and technology usage, and active or passive time to productivity. This visibility is key to understanding the success or failures of your remote teams.

What is ActivTrak’s approach to remote workforce management and employee monitoring?

Improving the productivity of your remote workforce 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, whether for your in-office teams or your remote workforce.

We designed ActivTrak from an ethical viewpoint:
with the fundamental principles of transparency, collaboration and informed insight. We’ve developed a powerful platform that focuses on the collection of contextual data, avoiding invasive employee monitoring technologies like keystroke logging and continuous screenshots. We welcome the users of our product to join us on our journey to move remote workforce management and employee monitoring beyond the era of oversight and into the results and data-driven space that is productivity insights.
