Experts say that by 2025, 22% of the workforce will work remotely. This is a relatively promising prediction, as 22% of current remote workers report being 22% happier and 30% more productive. However, many also report feelings of burnout and stress. The boundaries between work and home have been blurred, and work hours have spiraled out of control. This leaves many feeling unable to unplug, stressed, and disorganized.
Stepping away from the computer has allowed a reported 90% of Americans to feel more refreshed during the workday. It is this phenomenon that birthed the need for time tracking technology. This new software can help employees track their progress, take breaks and time off appropriately, and increase focus and engagement. Businesses also benefit from time tracking. They are able to save money otherwise wasted on manual tracking, understand what departments may be lacking, and offer better support to their remote employees.
As it currently stands, time tracking presents some challenges that need to be sorted before it can truly become omnipresent in the remote workspace. Many employees are still spending up to four hours a week on unproductive tasks. This is where facial recognition can make all the difference. Making work tracking seamless, facial recognition works on most devices, cannot be fooled by a photo or lookalike, and is backed by artificial intelligence technology.
This new and revolutionary technology allows for a distributed workforce with more time for productive progress and less busywork.
