GPS Tracking Used To Bust Moonlighters
The New Approach To Catching Employees Sleeping On The Job
If their is one thing an employee can do that will really piss off a boss it is falling asleep while on the clock. Now clearly their can be an occasional reasonable explanation such as a sick family member or situation of that nature that could give justifiable cause for a short snooze while at work, but typically when an employee catches z’s at work it equals big trouble. Although their may be a variety of reasons why a person may hit the hay while on the job their is no denying that it can impact a companies’ bottom line, productivity and more. With information gathered from a recent European survey that stated 1 out of 4 workers have fallen asleep on the job at least once, and another 40% saying they have had difficulties staying awake while on the job, many employers are turning to GPS tracking to help create accountability after the time card has been punched.
Although stress, boredom, adventurous/hectic lifestyles, anxiety and work-related stress can all be serious situations that act as the catalyst of sleeping on the job behaviors most companies only care about the result of those behaviors, which is lack of productivity. With lack of productivity comes lack of profit and that can be a highly influential factor on whether or not people keep or lose their jobs. With sleeping on the job becoming such a serious concern, especially for companies who have employees that work outside of the office, many businesses are taking a technological approach to monitoring staff with GPS tracking technology.
Tracking System Solution
By placing a tracking system on the vehicle of an employee who works outside of the office an employer will know every place that employee traveled and whether or not suspicious parking stops were made. A GPS tracking system will let the employer know if an employee decided to make a stop at home, or at a random parking lot to catch a cat nap.
When a GPS tracking device is connected to the vehicle of an employee the boss will always be riding shotgun, having the ability to access GPS tracking data whenever they suspect an employee is taking some snooze time.
