Tracking time spent on work tasks is one of the most popular requests from employers today. In the era of telecommuting, it's becoming more difficult to understand how many hours a day an employee actually spends on work. And if a company keeps a strict schedule, it becomes necessary to account for time using third-party tools.
There are two methods of time tracking. The first is more lenient. Its essence is to ask employees to count their working hours on projects with the help of HRM system which has a time tracking module. The second method is tougher: some companies track both time and the activity of an employee in the workplace by screen recording. The second method lends itself to criticism from an ethical and moral point of view, because it does not always positively affect the employee's engagement and desire to be active at work, where every step is tracked.
