Work-From-Home Employees Should Be Closely Monitored, According To 55% Of Employers

More than half of the employers surveyed by a trade association for HR workers and management professionals agreed that workers who work from home should be watched to see how productive they are.

Over 2,000 business owners were polled by the Chartered Institute of  Personnel and Development (CiPD) in the UK to see if they believed that information.

About workers who work from home (WFH) should be gathered. However, not all members of top management approved of it.

55% of managers approved of gathering data about WFH employees, including how much time they spent each day.

Using computers and how they behaved when sending emails, to determine the likelihood of burnout.

The survey discovered that employees who contact with HR professionals  are less at comfortable with these measures than non-HR staff.

The CiPD issued a caution along with the poll, requesting that  businesses be upfront with their personnel about what is being monitored and why.

It can enhance employee performance and well-being by spotting indicators of excessive workloads and burnout.
