I was a Network Administrator for a rather large company for ten-years. This large company decided to shut the manufacturing facility down that I work at because it was not being productive. I truly believe that if the employee computer and Internet activity were monitored, the facility may have been a lot more productive.
I cannot count how many games of solitaire and music downloads that I have interrupted in the past few years. Employees were chatting and gambling, I think one person was writing a book, and of course, before the company shut the facility down I built this website on company time.
I tested some computer monitoring programs on the network. The results were a bit unnerving. I found a perverted manager; a gambling supervisor and some of the chats that I logged were hilarious.
I wanted to build this site to show what can be done on an employer's time. A site like this does not just happen either. I probably spent at least 40 hours so far. 40 hours at close to 40 dollars an hour! I wonder what the stockholders would do if they knew their entire company could be maybe 40 percent more productive.
I hope that if you are reading this you are a bit enlightened and may decide to monitor your staff. If you do decide to try some computer monitoring software, just be sure to let them know that StaffMonitoring.com sent you.
