“The workplace of the future will foster creativity, be inspiring and encourage collaboration by enabling people to work from wherever, whenever and on whatever device, so that work becomes something people do, not a place people go”, the Citrix Workplace of the Future report states.
This sounds great, but let’s face it – even in this day and age, the abundance of Internet connectivity provides a multitude of distractions to workers. According to a survey among 3200 respondents, conducted by Salary.com, 64% of employees visit non-work related websites every day during work hours.
At the workplace, time is money
A recent Gallup poll found that the average employee spends over 75 minutes a day using office computers for non-business related activity. Based on the average salary in the UK for 2012 – £26 500 a year – this means that the average employee costs £576.78 in lost productivity to their employer on an annual basis. Just answering a few personal emails, reading the news headlines, a Facebook update here and a tweet there, can easily waste an hour of time each day. Wasting time through Internet activities is a huge hidden cost to business.
So how can businesses ensure that their staff are putting in a full day’s work?
There is a misconception that employee monitoring is only relevant in certain industries. The fact is that any organisation can benefit from monitoring employees. Any organisation which wishes to protect its interests and gain maximum efficiency from employees and IT resources should be looking at this.
