After the COVID-19 pandemic sent most of the workforce back to their homes, many employees have stayed working remote. Remote workers report being 22% happier at work and 30% more productive and engaged than employees who have remained in the office. While working from home does come with a slew of benefits, there are problems that have arisen with this new way to work.
Remote work can lead to higher levels of disorganization which can increase stress and burnout in employees who work from home. This disorganization can lead to delays in completing tasks, lower quality work, and feelings of inadequacy from a lack of work being completed during a long or busy day. 90% of remote workers felt more refreshed after stepping away from their computer at lunch, even if they were feeling stressed before. As a result, more and more companies are tracking their employees’ tasks and budgeting time to step away from the computer to take a break.
Time tracking using facial recognition can help employees identify where their time is being spent. This can help prioritize what is most important by creating an organized map of their day with breaks and time off scheduled appropriately. Facial recognition can assist with automatic time tracking by making data more secure, as it cannot be fooled by photos, videos, or lookalikes. As a result, companies are able to accurately understand where their time is being spent and actively plan to counteract any unproductivity.
Facial recognition can help to combat the struggles remote workers face every day such as disorganization and difficulty managing tasks. To learn more about how to utilize this technology, take a look at the infographic below:
