Everyone is familiar with the GPS tracking systems that are placed within employee vehicles. Not only do they keep the employee honest—no personal chores while on company time—but they can easily be recovered if stolen. If you’re considering GPS tracking for employees, it can also help to motivate your workforce.
The best method for employee tracking is through a mobile device app. Employees are only tracked when they’re on the job and can simply lock their work device in the drawer before they head for home. GPS tracking is legally safe to use on the worksite, as long as you tell your employees what you’re doing.
One of the main reasons for using an employee tracking system is when a manager or owner of a business is hoping to increase staff productivity. Many businesses have managed to improve employee productivity by 25%. But there are different types of GPS systems, and some will work better for specific types of businesses than others.
Often management needs to check in with employees several times a day, but they may not know where they are in a large office building. A GPS will allow managers to maintain a better management structure. This can also assist you with quality control at a plant, factory, or service-oriented business. Being able to track the user will provide you updates on their work progress. The mobile app used for tracking can display all employees in the building at any given time.
Certain jobs may require the employee to be off-site at certain times. The company may wish to ensure the well-being and security off the employee while away from the office.
A GPS can give real time access to vital data over specific times of the day that will help to better understand staff behavior and help you to better understand your employees.
Employees will be able to access business-related apps. For instance, there may also be apps that work together to process payments. Most people enjoy using apps, so your employees will be excited to use them in the business too.
Keeping track of time sheets is extremely important, as you want your employees to be paid what hours they’re owed, and often many work fluctuating hours. A GPS tracking app can help a manager to keep accurate records. The employee will feel confident in knowing that the hours they work are the hours they’ll be paid for on their paycheques. This also decreases the time spent on the part of the bookkeeper or accountant, as it decreases the time for having to fix errors.
Most people will admit they spend too much unproductive time on the internet and social media. The GPS tracking provides a way to motivate the employees to better focus on their tasks.
