    Employee monitoring problem

    I have a small business, most of my employees require Internet access to do their jobs. I have some concerns about inappropriate use of the computers and how it might affect productivity. I know there is parental control software (such as SentryPC)for home computer monitoring but is there anything available for small businesses that will allow me to monitor my employees discreetly?

    You can use the following software to monitor your staff discreetly.

    www[.]kerio[.]com

    Further here are some internet usage policy extracts, you can implement in your office.

    - Data that is composed, transmitted, accessed or received via the Internet must not contain content that could be considered discriminatory, offensive, obscene, threatening, harassing, intimidating, or disruptive to any employee or other person.

    - The unauthorized use, installation, copying, or distribute of copy righted, trademarked, or patented material on the Internet expressly prohibited. As a rule, if employee did not create the material, does not own the rights to it, or has not gotten authorization for its use, it should not be put on the Internet.

    “Personal internet browsing” is any browsing that will not aid the employee in performing his/her job function for the Company. “Off’ hours are those outside of the normal working hours of all employees. Personal internet browsing is acceptable during non- company or “Off’ hours but it shall be used for personal development purposes. However, browsing sites which contain sexually explicit or other socially objectionable material while using company computers is strictly prohibited and also will tantamount to grave misconduct which would call for disciplinary /legal action.

    Thumbs up

    These days even the smallest company needs to have computers in place, but it is important for business owners to keep careful track of what their workers are doing with those computers. Improper computer use obviously has an effect on productivity, but it can be a security risk as well. When employees use email for personal purposes they could inadvertently disclose company secrets, and that could put your business at risk. Going to unauthorized websites could also open up your computer network to viruses and other software attacks.

    This is nowadays becomes very common and must. And for this most commonly used software is remote desktop spy and Imonitor. These are really best and also there are lots more you just need to search it.

    There are different tools that you can use to monitor employees. There are also different approaches to employee monitoring. Always bear in mind that misuses of these tools can also affect employees. Instead of improving productivity it can lower you employees morale as soon as their productivity.

    Hi There

    In addition or as an alternative to monitoring why not use a web content filtering program like OpenDNS. Then you can block sites such as Facebook, porn, gaming etc.

    My sys admin installed Praetorian Guard. It has centralized administration and monitors all of our computers at work. It shows what applications and websites have been used and for how long. It will help you if you are afraid of employees breaching your security, for example.

    I personally don't recommend spying on your workers or even disabling certain website from their access. Nobody enjoys being watched, I don't think. I would say hire people who you think are going to be great and trust them until otherwise required.

    I've had the same concerns with my staff, so I've been using a free employee monitoring software with them, and I think it will be suitable for your needs as well. It takes and shows you screenshots of the employees' computer screens at regular, frequent intervals; it records the number of keystrokes and mouse clicks made by them, and also the times and duration of when they were idle and active. If you want to do the monitoring discreetly, I recommend you download the stealth version of the software which you have to install on the staff-computers yourself, preferably without the knowledge of your employees. So, the software is called My Team Monitor, and you can sign up for it at their website for free. You can also read about additional details and features of the software there.

    You are having the right concern, as the company grows in size it becomes very difficult to track the activities of the employees which may affect the productivity on the whole. In this case it is better to use a employee monitoring software like Prohance which takes care of tracking the employee desktop usage, activities on and away from system, work distribution and time capture in an automated system.

    You can use Imonitor. The effectiveness depends on size of your staff so keep that in mind. Plus even though you are in the right, many employees do not look kindly on being watched all the time.
