When properly motivated, an employee can do a lot of damage to your company. Whether they’re assuming they’re about to be fired or planning to resign after the next payday, as soon as a staff member knows their time is limited at your business, they become a liability.
This is especially true when it comes to customer data – an employee that knows they’re leaving can easily copy and steal important sales info, and use it to negatively affect your business when they’re working as your competitor.
This is why employee monitoring is so important.
Modern business technology is a double-edged sword.
Although the Internet and modern IT have created many opportunities to save time, direct access to customer and business-wide data puts all those assets at risk when they’re in the wrong hands. Although it’s not often necessary to monitor employee behavior, it’s a good option to have.
