Why Remote Workers Should be Time-Tracked

Privacy is one of the most important commodities of the modern era. In an age where the internet has everything being tracked, it can feel hard to give up any privacy that’s left. Remote workers in particular enjoy the freedom of remote work, something that time tracking may help take away. There are a few key reasons why this is a positive and not a negative though.

Most notably, remote workers have a hard time feeling like real workers. Remote workers work more, feel less pride over their work, and are distracted often. The freedom of working from home is great, it’s irreplaceable in many ways. But mulling away at a computer for hours a day can put people in a bad cycle. Time feels endless when there’s no physical end  to the day.

Time tracking helps to stop this from happening. Breaks will be taken and respected, and employees will have less distractions while also working less. This also solves the unique problem of working feeling pointless. Time tracking gives explicit information on what was being worked on when. Creating a real sense of accomplishment and pride when long-term progress can be seen.

It’s certainly no perfect solution. The reality is remote work has a long way to come in a lot of ways. Although it’s one solution that only seems to benefit employers and employees alike. The freedom and privacy of remote work is a great privilege. Although limiting it a bit can actually make it a far greater experience in the end.
