When the pandemic first hit, many companies were taking their workforce remotely for the first time and investing in employee monitoring software to ensure employees were working as productively from home as they were in the office.

In March, ResumeBuilder.com surveyed 1,000 companies with a primarily remote and/or hybrid workforce to find out how many still feel the need to monitor their employees 3 years down the line, and how this monitoring has affected productivity and attrition.

The vast majority of respondents surveyed say their company uses at least some form of employee monitoring software. Of this group, only 5% say their employees are unaware they are being monitored.

Just 10% of remote companies were monitoring employees pre-pandemic, while 37% started during the first year of the pandemic and 20% started monitoring within the past year.

“It’s clear from our survey that there are still organizations struggling to manage their workforce post-pandemic,” comments Chief Career Advisor Stacie Haller. “The focus on hours worked versus actual productivity and the successful completion of timely projects seems to reflect the challenges management teams are facing when it comes to readjusting how they manage a remote workforce.”
